You will have to buy your seat again!

seatsSome West Ham season ticket holders – who will remain nameless for this article – have been working all season out how they might detach their own seat after the last game of the season as a memento of the Boleyn ground.

The seats are bolted together is sections of five and some fans have already worked out what size spanner would be required to remove the plastic part of their seat after the final whistle has been blown whether it be the Swansea City or Manchester United game.

West Ham chairman, David Gold has revealed on twitter this week that the club plans to sell the plastic seats to fans. David replying to a question told a West Ham fan “Yes we will be selling the seats at Upton Park when we leave. dg”

West Ham fan, Stephen Beasley replied “How can you charge people to buy their seats? Ain’t we payed enough over the years already?”

  1. 30,000 fans need to get togeather to make it the biggest robbery in history,
    That’s the sort of legend we need to leave for history,
    Be sick to see these seats get sold on E Bay in weeks to come or some builder selling them on line or boot fairs,
    If any of you get a spare one I will be the first to make a bid
    The Upton Park Seat Scam what a great film

  2. everything being sold off is this a ploy to pay off the debt or reinvest for new players next season? I agree with the reply by Stephen can the sth keep there seats & auction off the rest

  3. We should organise a st Trinian’s style raid with Russell brand as flash harry giving the spanners out ! Let’s get it right here the Dave’s would be helping themselves if they weren’t the owners ! After all we’ve all bunked in at some stage in the early years , even the Dave’s !
    Welcome to the east end !!!!

  4. They should have included “you can get to keep your seat” as part of the season ticket package.

    I fear there could be an awful lot of trouble now on the final day. Hope I am wrong.

    I dread to think how much they are going to charge, even if they make it very cheap, it will still not stop many fans from trying to rip out their seat come the FT Whistle.
