Shock Season ticket renewal poll result revealed

A Claret and Hugh poll of 685 West Ham season ticket holders claim nearly 26% of supporters do not plan to renew their London Stadium seats. If this percentage was carried through to all 52,000 season ticket holders then over 13,400 supporters do not plan to renew for next season.

Over 51% of supporters claim they do plan to renew their season tickets which account for around 26,600 fans.The remaining 23% are undecided with many wanting to wait to know West Ham’s Premier League status before committing.

Last year around 10% did not renew their London Stadium season tickets meaning around 5,200 seats were allocated to the Hammers season ticket waiting list.  At a Supporters Advisory Board in February West Ham claimed that the waiting list now stands at 48,000 and that those at the top of the list where being contacted to check they were still interested in obtaining a season ticket.

Full Poll Results: Do you plan to renew your season ticket?  Yes 351 (51.24%) No 177 (25.84%) Undecided 157 (22.92%) Total votes=685

  1. Poor stadium, poor team, poor owners, fans fighting amongst themselves. Where’s the shock?

  2. True supporters will still go whatever the Stadium is like but watching this rubbish and with these owners in place why would you want to ? . They are taking the p###.

  3. A lot of new supporters were able to come to football for the first time with the new stadium. They had never known football hooliganism, like us more experienced supporters had. Now they have seen it for the first time right in their laps. Of course they would stop going to matches. They brought a record number of kids in with very cheap season tickets. Of course they don’t want their kids to ever see that again.
    The new stadium made our support much more family-based than ever before. Of course families don’t want to come back for more of that.
    Congrats ” real west ham supporters ” good luck with your march.

  4. Last season my sister and I had a change of heart and renewed at the last minute. This season there is no way we will be renewing. I still see empty seats around me in the dreadfully expensive 1966 band. If only I could see the players as clear.

  5. I wonder what percentage of the poll respondents don’t actually own a season ticket.

  6. Is a Stadium move and poor results a good reason to not renew your tickets ?? , I don’t think so . If you are a West Ham United Fan , I mean a true fan supporting your team is what football is all about . A few incidents by a mindless few shouldn’t keep life long fans away . There are 20 clubs in the Premiership and all of them Are fighting for success at one level or another every season . Just to stay in the Premiership is a challenge . We are trying to be a big club but patience is required .
    The very term “ Real West Ham Fans “ is a direct insult to the very fans that love football for what it is .

  7. Not really a shock after the way the club is being run …if the Davids said they were selling up they would go like hot cakes 🙅😂

  8. Nothing to do with over paid players not putting the effort in or giving a toss most games. Nothing to do with poor, boring football and mystifying substitutions. Nothing to do with a dismal experience entering,leaving and whilst inside a mock football ground. Nothing to do with broken promises by the board and a spending budget that Scrooge would have been proud of. Nothing to do with a demoralising list of perpetual injuries that only seem to happen to us. Oh no. It;s all the fans fault for daring to try to bring all these things to the attention of the board. Wake up please.

  9. The negative atmosphere around the club has been created by some fans ever since we moved. I really hope that these moaners don’t renew. Looking forward to a much better 2018/19 season without them

  10. I hope all the moaners stay away last season it was well over 50% said they weren’t renewing and yet we had record numbers renew highest in the PL, whether or not it is non supporters posting they will not renew or just the usual b/s, like i said last season when I asked many of the moaners to sell me their season ticket, they don’t have the guts to back their negativity with action and again we will have record numbers renew I am sure…
