Irons clear up OS banding worries

120416 LOCOG Aerials_043The Hanmmers have cleared up confusion caused to season ticket holders in Sir Trevor Brooking upper after the West Ham Olympic Stadium migration brochure sent to over 21,000 season ticket holders appeared to show they have been moved from band 4 to band 3.

Claret and Hugh has been told by a senior club source the problem was caused by a printing error and fans should not worry.

Concern was growing in social media that West Ham were planning to move the Family enclosure from price band 4 to price band in the Olympic Stadium with one fan tweeting chairman David Gold to demand answers.

A senior source told Claret and Hugh “In the Boleyn/Migration brochure there is a printing error on the Boleyn Ground seating map which wrongly classifies the existing Sir Trevor Upper as Band 3 not Band 4 (a difference in the shade of blue).

“The error has been rectified on the websites and we have explained the mistake to a few ¬†supporters who have enquired as they sit in that area and were understandably perplexed.

“As you know the banding for the OS has yet to been released so I can only assume that supporters have noticed the apparent change in banding and presumed it was a precursor to a change at the OS.

The family area at the OS will remain Band 4 although it may increase in size to encompass other bands (thereby offering more choice to families).

“I am very confident that supporters will believe we are staying true to our commitment to affordable family football when the pricing structure is released.”
