Hammers head for financial heights


West Ham’s finances took another boost after the 3-1 victory over Serbians TSC last Thursday evening.

The Hammer collect £3.17 million for qualifying in the first place without having to kick a ball in the Europa League.

And the win on Thursday earned them another £550,037 taking them well towards the £4 million mark.

They will have the opportunity of adding the same again when they meet their next opponents- Germans, Freiburg away on October 5th.

Following that they meet Olympiakos Pireaus away and a couple of wins could of course take them towards the £5 million mark.

The Euro League is of course worth more than the Conference competition that we won last season and should we run out winners of the competition then we will collect over £7 million for the Final victory.

And the various wins we achieve in between and the possibility of becoming winners of the group, for example, could take it to over £20 million.
