West Ham have no plans to sell tickets through others

lastminute.com TURNS 15!  West Ham has cleared up the mystery of how travel website Lastminute.com were able to advertise West Ham tickets for sale across the whole season. Last week, Lastminute.com were freely advertising match tickets across the entire West Ham Premier League season with several eager West Ham fans snapping up tickets.

The £50 tickets were advertised in the upper south tier, blocks  223, 224 and 225 which should be reserved for general sale. When we highlighted the issue to the club the tickets were quickly removed from the website within hours.

A West Ham spokesperson told Claret and Hugh this morning “Tickets were erroneously advertised on lastminute.com by a prospective club partner. Once West Ham United officials spotted the error it was rectified immediately. There are absolutely no plans to sell West Ham United home tickets via third party providers.”

  1. Who is this prospective partner , Arthur daily ?? And how did he have the rights to do it !
    Are the club taking legal action if it was wrong ????
    Absolutely stinks !!

  2. As I posted yesterday..
    The Dave’s need to sort out Our own booking office !! Long waiting times – phones dropping out after we have been hanging on over 40 + mins etc. For the 1st 2 games
    I have paid more in phone calls than the cost of tickets. PLEASE GET IT SORTED

    • I have had the same issues with them firefighter although I have so far refused to waste time on the phone at an extra 13p a minute and incur the expenses, I have been trying to contact the reservation centre by email, provided them their own transaction id’s so they can look into my questions and after the first time back in June when they responded they haven’t responded in 5 times previously despite assurances that they would contact with 24 hours…

  3. Stan Flashman had some very good points – he was kind to animals for example – but you’d hope that West Ham wouldn’t get involved with sharks like him!

    This whole issue is more than fishy!
