We renewed 2 years ago and changed from Band 2 to Band 4. Whilst it is painful moving as it's only what available on the day you get your time slot. The actual refunds went well, the two I moved with got the difference debited back on the payment cards. I applied through finance and remember it being a painless process getting it all changed.

Might be worth a quick call to ticket office to confirm but I can't see it having changed much.

Club London renewals are in the inbox.

17.7% PRICE RISE.

3 YEAR LONG DEALS.

CLUB RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INCREASE THE PRICE IN THE SECOND AND THIRD YEAR BY 3%.

PAYMENTS TO BE TAKEN OVER TEN MONTHS, SO CASH FLOW BENEFIT TO WEST HAM (SULLY ALL OVER THAT IS).

WE HAVE NINE TICKETS SPREAD ACROSS THE FORGE AND ROYAL EAST.

How can they justify raising prices by that much. All reports seem to suggest that the facilities in the corporate areas are not commensurate with the prices being charged as it is! Are the club promising any improvements to go along with the increase in fee.?

BTW I do hope the chair of the SAB MkII is able to continue to afford his corporate seat. Hardly befitting his position having to sit with the rest of us plebs :D

What are the prices of season tickets in the various lounges?
And are they all tied to 3 year deals?

Today’s the day the new SAB meet with the club to discuss the inflation busting season ticket rises.

You know, the one where the club bypassed the only fans group they said they would consult with.

Will they

A) roll over and have their tummy tickled by whatever low level functionary they meet in the coffee shop
B) resign on mass at the obvious contempt they have been treated with :lol:
C) play hardball and ask for a VIP pass for David Gold’s garden open day and a picture of 442 Green St as a price for their silence.

is there an open communication channel for us the fans with the SAB? seems daft if there isn't. they should surely be asking the fan base "what would you like us to take to the board" otherwise what do they actually do?

The chairman is on twitter but he gets very touchy if you ask him anything difficult.

To be fair, the chairman of the new SAB had met with the owners before....

So a two-week renewal date extension and the following are the OSB's "big wins" following consultation. And to think people said they were just puppets...

"The Club has also committed to consulting with the OSB on the process around Season Ticket renewals in future seasons."


As we know, Karren Brady is very fond of telling the fans "we commit". Not quite so good at following through with subsequent action though.

more likely TOLD the OSB what they were doing and that they were going to give the OSB credit for it to somewhat "legitimize" the muppets, er puppets..


nah, I was right the first time...

Written by the club for the club and trying to justify the clubs quango

Sadly they take 99% of the support for idiots that will believe it
