No troubles at London Stadium

policeThis will not be a headline you will be reading in the Sunday papers because it will not be considered news worthy.

The Metropolitan police and operators London Stadium 185 have confirmed NO arrests were made inside or outside the stadium and there were NO incidents of notes.

Met Police told us: “No arrests, No issues of note and Police worked well alongside Stewards inside the stadium”

A spokesman for London Stadium 185 confirmed: “No arrests or major incidents”

Eye witnesses told us there were minor incidents with Stoke City away fans in the upper tier with stewards and one Stoke fan was seen escorted from his seat in the away end. We understand stewards quickly bought the incident under control without police assistance.  Other West Ham season ticket holders said a small minority away fans did they best to incite trouble but West Ham fans were on their best behaviour and didn’t respond to the goading.

responseThere was added security in block 127 in Sir Trevor Brooking Lower where 159 season ticket holders were relocated from block 114 in the West stand.  Security stewards with yellow caps were present in this block as were police in the first half but supporters commented that the police were friendly and not heavy handed in any way. Rumours of snatch squads appeared to be just  and very wide of the mark, no-one to our knowledge was snatched out of their seats to be handed over to police as was suggested before the match.

Ticket holders in the Sir Trevor Booking lower were regularly asked to show their tickets when entering the stand in a new protocol to ensure  they have a valid seat in the section next to away fans.

  1. So nobody was taken out of block 127 today for persistent standing then Sean???

  2. Not to my knowledge Nick. Do you know any different? I have been told police had no problems with supporters standing. It is not a criminal offence to stand at football match. Give me more details and I will look into it

  3. I saw a post on Twitter about a Stoke fan being ejected – but apart from that it seemed ok.

    The only problem was actually getting in, the gates didn’t open until about 2 pm – nobody had a clue what was going on!

  4. Persistant standing is annoying but not as bloody annoying as this persistant Capital One pop up that keeps on appearing on here covering the whole of my screen when im halfway through an article lool.
    Come on Sean dont kick the ass out of the ads 😀

    • Yes, this is becoming a real pain – I know tge site has to pay it’s way but this has become really annoying – sort it ahhhhttt!

  5. I did see the Police escorting one fan through the concourse, I was in block 127 yesterday row 8 and there were a lot of songs about justice for the 114 which was good, having looked at the block 114 again can anyone think why they have been moved ? The only thing I could think of was so you wouldn’t have fans both sides encroaching but it does look seriously OTT, I wonder if Brady had her headphones on because she was the target of a number of songs also which seems a bit pointless…
