Hammers choose OS seats

VirtualSeatThe process to choose your seats in the Olympic Stadium has began with the 808 West Ham Bond Holders choosing their seats first. West Ham Band 1 season ticket holders will follow in May, followed by Band 2 in July, Band 3 in October and finally band 4 in December.

Season ticket holders choose their seats based on virtual technology software at the Stratford Reservation centre.  West Ham have promised a comparable seat which they say will be one in an equivalent price band and similar location to the seat occupied for the final season at the Boleyn Ground.

However they add that given the obvious differences in the shape, seating layout and capacity of the two grounds, no two seats will be exactly comparable and the quality of each seat and sight line is subjective.

This virtual reality image is for a Band 1 season ticket holder in row 19 of the new East ‘Kop style’ Stand.

This season ticket holder reserved One Band 1 Adult ticket at £899 plus two Under 16’s tickets at £99 each totaling £1,097 for the three season tickets. They would have paid the 25% deposit  of around £275 at the time of reservation.

  1. Have a look at this: http://www.castrust.org/2015/04/west-ham-and-the-olympic-stadium-the-cas-trust-position/

    Interesting that the Charlton TRust hasn’t bothered to allow comments as they have carefully ignored certain information taht wouldn’t help their cause.

    They are still angry about the low rent of 2.5 million and us only contributing 15 million upfront for the conversion costs. Fact is that West Ham will essentially be paying the entire conversion costs by way of giving the lion’s share of the naming rights to the LLDC in the first ten or twenty years (details obviously not yet disclosed).
    Our contribution per season is naming rights share, catering share and rent.

    They also mention Arsenal who didn’t get state subsidy for their new stadium.
    Tough luck the Olympics didn’t happen earlier and the OS wasn’t built in North London.

    Of course you cannot put exact numbers on these things as we don’t yet know how much money the naming rights will be sold for and how much money will come in through catering, but I reckon it wouldn’t hurt if our board and Brady wouldn’t argue our cause much more vociferously here.

    Once again (just like Orient before them) a rival club, although this time it’s mainly their fans, are trying to get some sort of advantage on the back of us moving intot the OS.
    Why should Charlton Athletic fans have a say in the terms of West Ham’s deal ?

  2. I read it yesterday Hamburg & also noticed the comments closed section.Clearly didnt want Irons supporters signing up to the site.I dont forgive these b*stards,simple reason being, giving them a home when they had nowhere to play.If anyone should be thankful to us in any small way it should be Charlton fans.They seem to forget this fact now.I think they are seriously out of order.

  3. It’s so contradictory too – they say they don’t know the details of the deal, yet claim West Ham aren’t contributing enough for the taxpayer. They ignore the share of certain income streams which again is money that goes straight back to the taxpayers, generated by West Ham playing there.
    They ignore that the initial building costs are sunk costs budgeted for from the Olmypics budget and that has actually nothing to do with West Ham.
    They ignore we aren’t buying and owning the OS, we’re merely renting as one of several parties in the OS.
    Our board in my view is much too quiet on this.
