OS season ticket discounts – show us the full plan!

OS2While Claret and Hugh applaud West Ham’s board attempt to bring affordable football to families and throwing down the gauntlet to other Premier League clubs, there remains one important piece of the jig saw missing.

West Ham have not released a seating plan of the Olympic Stadium showing the areas and numbers of new and existing bands.

Without this crucial additional information it is difficult to judge how great the much heralded discounts are going to be worth in reality.

For example if a current Band Four season ticket holder in Sir Trevor Brooking lower behind the goal wants a similar seat does he/she need to move to band three to get a similar view? If that turns out to be the case the majority of the discount would be wiped out in instant and it was a just another clever marketing ploy.

West Ham say individual season ticket holders will be shown the seating plan and a virtual view at the Stratford reservation centre during their personal appointment.  For some supporters in Band Four this will not be until next year.

What have West Ham got to hide? Why do they continue to drip feed information in relation to the Olympic Stadium? It would much better to be transparent and put all the cards on the table.

  1. all a trick to get people to renew season tickets,and to draw attention from the fat sam out campaign

  2. This situation is RIDICULOUS. I don’t like getting fuc*ing played. I would hope that what cannot happen it will in actual fact happen.
    I really hope the owners will do the right thing.
    But if not, it would be shameful: there’s no reason in the world that they should renew the fatman’s contract now that it expires.
    Poll are against him, the majority of the fans are against him, his football is pathetic, after Xmas we have a relegation average, BFS is the 12th highest-paid manager in the world.


  3. I’ve just read this article


    it takes courage to say certain things…

  4. Oh dear Matte,what a surprise,Carroll comes out in support of the muppet who blew 17m of the Irons money on him.I say he blew it coz i really cant see anyway that price tag can be justified on a guy who has missed more games than he has played for us.Same old media garbage the players fire out in support of the current manager until the geezer goes then they soon forget about him & say exactly the same about the next manager.Carroll is surely heading the way of being one of the most if not the most costliest mistakes we have ever made as a club.As for the season ticket issue,it is an absolute farce,you get to see the band seating plan when you go to your individual appointment,what a joke.But anyway i dont read much of Seans stuff anymore,not since he resurfaced on wetpantswhenidie,he has gone right down in my estmations,lol 😀

  5. I know Chicken, Carroll and his mate Nolan are just muppets. A gree, Nolan is one of the biggest mistakes made by West Ham. And we have to say “Thank you very much Mr Allardyce for this choice”.
