West Ham’s away allowance at Wembley

wembley-sky-shotWest Ham are likely to be allocated an away allocation of 5,000 for the 4th round of the League Cup in October.

Like the third round, against Barnsley, Spurs are unlikely to sell tickets in the upper tier of Wembley Stadium.

Wembley’s lower tier holds 34,303 spectators with the middle titer holding a further 16,532 seats but the upper tier holding 39,165 will remain empty. This will mean a capacity of 50,835 of which 10% should be allocated to the away side in a Lague Cup game.

The game will be played on Tuesday 24 or Wednesday 25 October.

Spurs will most likely price tickets at £10 and £15 as they did for the third round of the League Cup when just 23,926 turned up of which 3,500 were Barnsley supporters.

West Ham will share 45% of the gate money on the night which could mean around £300,000 if all 50,000 tickets sell out.

The Hammers will play Spurs again at Wembley on Saturday 30th November in the Premier League but rules in that game means Tottenham can restrict the away allocation to just 3,000.

  1. A bit daft considering Spurs don’t fill Wembley at ” home games ” . 29,000 fans for a cup game against Barnsley is a poor showing by the Spuds . But you can bet your Mortgage they will turn up in droves for the West Ham game . Especially after we beat them at the LS on Saturday . It’s an away game for both Clubs in reality so , it all depends on which teams turn up . Hopefully West Ham will be up for this Cup Game . We love Big occasions and this cup game is certainly up there with our History . The Fans can have a massive impact on this Game .
    COME ON you Hammers.

  2. Pretty short sighted by the powers that be to only allow the away fans 5,000 when West Ham would likely sell 5 times that much….?
