Huge Demand for Europa League tickets

West Ham have been swamped by huge demand for Europa League tickets for Thursday night after sales opened to the general public at 9am this morning. Many fans have complained they can’t get through on the phones or website as the ticket infrastructure struggles to cope with the demand.

West Ham released a statement saying ¬†“We are experiencing huge demand for tickets for the UEFA Europa League first qualifying round visit of FC Lusitanos on Thursday 2 July. We are working to process your online and telephone bookings as quickly as possible. Thank you for your loyal support!”

One disgruntled fan left a message on the club’s official facebook page complaining.¬†“Bit of a joke really…. Understand the demand, but 2 hours 15 minutes wait on the website? Then when you finally choose your seats the page freezes and they time out and lose them… Think you need to update your system. How will you cope when we move to the OS and its a major game?”
