Hammers fans left with no seats at London stadium


West Ham supporters seated in block 24 took to social media yesterday to complain they had been sold tickets without seats. Supporters were forced to perch on the concrete steps.

The ticket master website shows seats available up to row 73 in upper tier block 214 but it is clear from the photos below that seating ends in row 71. West Ham fan Paul posted on twitter “Block 214 row 73 no seats! Not happy!” although he followed that up with “I’m giving West Ham a chance to explain before I talk to anyone else.”

    Yikes – I know we’re in the settling in period, but that is more than just some rubbish that the builders didn’t take away. Why are they selling tickets for seats that don’t exist? Are they supposed to exist?

    Good luck with trying to get an explanation for anything that is detrimental to the club.
    The only they do is to rescind season tickets at a friendly, for standing!!

    We stand when they want, we stand when they want, we have no seats, we stand when we want !!!

    Oops – there’s quite a few teething problems still to be sorted – this obvious balls-up should go at the top of a long list!

    I’m pleasantly surprised by the whole Olympic Stadium experience – three games now and no real problems – but plenty of work still to do!

    That would do for me,it’s just like Valencia you bring you own cushion and stand when you like,
    No problem with being asked to sit,
    Just like the old days in the south bank,

    with no seat, it must have been confusing to look over and see hundreds of covered seats not being used. COME ON YOU IRONICS.
