West Ham Chairman David Gold is optimistic that the Hammers will fill the 54,000 seats of the Olympic Stadium 99% of the time.
Speaking toFrank Keogh from the BBC the joint chairman said:
‘Obviously, attendances have a lot to do with performances on the field, but taking all things into account we are optimistic of filling the stadium, 99% of the time, every time we get an update on ticket sales, they are the best we have experienced. All the targets we have set ourselves are being met.”
“One fan wrote to me and said he was coming in from Ashford and he’ll save an hour each way on his journey. Even coming in from Europe will be easier.”
