Hammers New Year’s Eve Wembley game at risk

wembleyWest Ham’s away trip to Wembley on New Year’s Eve to face Spurs is at risk!

ClaretandHugh has learned today that London Underground want the game postponed because of the unavailability of drivers.

And we understand that TFL would like a permanent ban on all future Premier League matches in the capital on New Year’s Eve.

Tickets have yet to go on sale and the fixture remains in limbo awaiting final approval from Wembley’s Safety Advisory Board.

CandH understand London Underground are refusing to budge from current position despite the fixture having Premier League and police approval.

 However, they have a history of brinkmanship on these issues but generally reach a compromise at the eleventh hour. Meeting are continuing in a bid to solve the problem.
A source close to West Ham indicated any issues would be dealt with from the Spurs end rather than ours saying: “The game has been confirmed by the Premier League although there was intense discussions with various parties before it was confirmed. However, The police have also confirmed. Spurs would have to sort out any issues if they are subsequently raised.”

  1. I am coming over to see West Ham from America and I am there from 14/12-31/12 and booked the trip before the fixture change announcement. The airline wants to charge me over £800 to re-book. I hope they have to change it back to the 30th!! Going to be devastated if they don’t.
