West Ham Charity events cancelled

AngusParticipants of charity football matches at the Boleyn ground were told yesterday that West Ham had made the decision as they must re-lay the pitch earlier than usual to ensure it is ready for Europa League matches should they qualify by the Premier League Fair Play table.

A statement by one event organiser on their website said: “It is with deep regret we inform you that West Ham United Football Club have advised that they have cancelled this year’s pitch events.┬áThe reason given is that the club could be eligible for next year’s Europa League and the pitch will therefore have to be relaid earlier than usual.”

It is understood that West Ham Managing Director Angus Kinnear pictured above wrote to all event organisers cancelling all pitch events in May and June. Several charities have voiced they will be financial disadvantaged by the club’s decision.

  1. I am sure they can be compensated,
    There are many season ticket holders that do not want us to play in Europe because they are scared we may have to cope with relegation if we play to many games,
    Why do those honourable people give there seat on those days to charity to raise money,
    Then they will feel better in their selves and get over that scared feeling,
    I am sure the Spuds would step in if you leak it to them,

  2. We have struggled since the start of the year, playing Thursday and at the weekend concerns me, but I’m quite certain we will soon be knocked out, all that is important next season is getting a settled team, a manager who can work with all the squad, not just two players, and someone who will agree on taking us back to being THE ACADEMY and work with our Youth.

  3. Go for it jaybs be positive ( quite certain we will soon be knocked out )
    Bet you can’t wait for us to get knocked out of both cups and what a relief when we get 40 points,
    BFS was made for you,
    Health and safety first how boring I am lost for words,why bother breathing no adventure,
    No excitement no reason to live,
    Come on let’s get bold lets go for every thing and if we fail at least we would have enjoyed it
