It’s a sell-out! West Ham shift 52,000 season tickets ahead of move to Stratford

first_img“So having made the bold decision to move to the former Olympic Stadium, we are delighted to see how it has captured the imagination of the Hammers fanbase. We find ourselves going into our first season with more than 50,000 Season Ticket holders and tens of thousands of people on the Priority List for seasonal seats in 2017/18. “I know there will be some disappointed fans on the Priority List who did not get Season Tickets, but I can assure them they will be first in the queue should any become available for our second year and they will very much continue to be a part of our great Club. West Ham are moving into the Olympic Stadium this summer “Reports consistently show that we have highest average capacity in the Premier League and every game in our final season at the Boleyn Ground sold out within days of going on sale. West Ham have confirmed they have sold out of season tickets for their first year at the Olympic Stadium. The east Londoners have also sold out of hospitality packages well in advance of the start of the new era-defining move to Stratford.  The Hammers have shifted 52,000 season tickets ahead of next season, only Manchester United currently sell more (55,000). It’s the club’s final match ever at the 32,000 capacity Upton Park on Tuesday night where Manchester United are their opponents. And while the move across east London to the site of the 2012 Olympics Games has been subject to some complaints, it is proving to be an unqualified success for the club. West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady said: “David Sullivan, David Gold and I have always believed in the West Ham fanbase and knew we could fill the new Stadium. 1 “Without doubt, our stadium move is an unrivalled success story, but we know the hard work does not stop now. We must deliver a stadium that exceeds our Season Ticket Holders’ expectations and support Slaven Bilic in building a team on the pitch that matches our stunning new home.“I would like to conclude by saying a personal thank you to everyone who has bought a Season Ticket or Club London package for next season. Together we will make history for West Ham United.”last_img read more
