David Gold gives his support for Safe standing trial

HammersThe Football Supporters  Federation (FSF) and Shrewsbury Town fans have launched a crowdfunding campaign to create a showcase for safe standing in England.
They wants MPs can see how well this will work in this country and hopefully be more likely to give the OK for safe standing everywhere, including at the London Stadium in the future.
David Gold has been very supportive of the safe standing concept and to help this crowd funding campaign, he has donated a West Ham shirt signed by the players in Maythis year , along with a certificate of authenticity, for the Safe Standing campaign organisers to ‘raffle’.
Entries are now open to win the shirt and will run until 3pm on Wednesday to win the Hammers shirt.
At just £5 an entry, it’s a great chance for West Ham fans who would like to see safe standing at the London Stadium to chip in a few quid to help make it happen and at the same time have an inexpensive chance of winning this signed shirt donated by David Gold.

    Well done David .
    But on another note ; what can be done to persuade the British Athletics Organization to move the venue in future ? . There was talk of Birmingham if memory serves . The LS needs converting for Football . How and who pays is at the moment unimportant but it must be done .

    I went to the Germany 1 England 5 sept 1 2001 the stadium had SAFE STANDING THEN it WORKED!!

      lol Booga indeed, the Liverpool supporters have even backed it so I am not sure what should be holding it up, the problem for us is with the David’s in charge I can’t see us getting it authorised through the Stadium owners, if we were to get that permission and the other seats opened up we could expect a capacity of 75,000 rather than the current max of 66,000. With the amount of season ticket holders on the list there is no doubt we could fill that allocation comfortably and be the biggest club in London.

      • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

        should be the amount of fans on season ticket waiting list not season ticket holders on list.

  • norfolkhammer says:

    talking of season tickets & holders as anyone thought if we get to a semi final or final gonna be alot of unhappy fans who won’t get a tkt cos of the amount sold as the fa on average split 25 thousand each club grr as for safe standing it’s easy unbolt your seat at LS & stand up most do in the Bobby Moore lower so why do we need to worry about safe standing Mr Gold a few more players in at the club wouldn’t go amiss as you do like to make our team abit oap ffs Zabaletta & Fonte past there sell by date play the f@@king younger players
