Europa League game sold out


In the last few minutes the West Ham v FC Lusitans has sold out for the first leg of the Europa League qualifying round on Thursday night at the Boleyn Ground.

Over 35,000 West Ham fans have shelled out £10 or £5 to watch Slaven Bilic’s first match in charge of the Hammers and our first return to Europe in nine years.

An insider told Claret and Hugh “That’s correct the stadium is sold out, we will have an attendance of over 35,000.  We haven’t had to include a large segregation as its not needed especially with less than 50 away fans looking to actually attend”

Kick off is at 7.45pm and as yet no details have been given as to whether the game will be televised. BT Sports holds the exclusive rights in the UK for the UEFA Europa League but it’s TV schedule is void of the Europa League match on Thursday evening so far.

  1. Any additional word on a stream? BT still does not have it listed…

  2. Dont think its on anything Nav.BT aint showing it appears.Cant find any streaming either atm.Commentary on the west ham site seems the only way to go so far 😉

    • There you go again upsetting everyone hahaha sorry couldn’t resist
      If anyone knows of a stream I’d love to know cos I can’t f*cking go on Thursday not that it’s making me angry or anything grrrrrrr

      • Highly unlikely to be a stream now, unless someone decides very late to show it.
        It looks like it’s the radio for live coverage.

    • DREAM KILLER! Just messing…yeah, I hope the OS does something more than the text feed though, this game has turned in to something big.

  3. would love to be there,the only thing I miss about England is going to see the hammers!!
    (woops,sorry mum)

  4. Bad energy around here today… this is a place of peace, brotherhood, good intentions, love… there’s no room for stats, imaginary formations, fantasy scoops, hysterical blondes… in the C&H hotel you can find: yoga classes, transcendental-meditation lessons, group therapy sessions, magic mushrooms and a harem full of figas. “C&H Hotel, a place of peace, relaxation and tranquility… join us”… lol

    • Yes Matte,Dont worry i havnt forgotten i am taking the meditation class at 8pm.Hope to see you all there.Dont forget your mats & beer.Anyone who brings bad vibes with them gets a baseball bat up side the head! Ommmm

  5. Can’t wait, I will be there but I would be surprised if BT weren’t showing it, it’s Bilic’s first game in charge so would be sure to be of interest to a lot more than just us lot you would think ? Plus what other football is there on that’s live at this time of year. Working in Telecoms myself though I never underestimate BT’s ability to shoot itself in the foot so who knows. Best of luck to you all in finding a provider that will show it if you can’t make it in person 🙂

  6. I will be at the game but got a feeling if BT Sport were showing it they would be advertising it by now.Wonder if their contract only starts from the group stages onwards.

  7. A sell out we’ll blow my socks off Braders did not see that coming,
    Wonder what the stats are for crowd sizes for teams playing non pro,s ?
    Meditation and beer now your talking,

  8. Lol,Mystic Brad was having an off day bubs.The sun has cause too much pollution,his postive energy was unable to break through from on high 😀

  9. Probably cost us our Premier league position though stingray,
    When does that start Friday after we score double figures on Thursday,
    There be stats on how we are using up our seasonal goal quoter,I just hope Nolan plays 5 mins and scores that 100th goal so we can put that one to sleep for good,

  10. Wont count bubs,it is 100 prem league goals isnt it.The wait will go on 😉

  11. I think he would take it if it was a kick about in the park when he walks baby Carroll,
    But rumours have it he hasn’t scored in the park either,well not playing football anyway,
    And this is tongue in cheek before the Nolan and BFS gang start telling me how nice I am
