|All you need to know about West Ham United FC's potential move to Stratford.
You would have to make every STH go online and state whether they were using it or not though? Otherwise how will the club know that it's not being used.
If you're going online to do that, you may as well do ticket trader and get some credits for Cup games or next years cost.
Exactly the same thing happened in the old days when tickets were affordable. I knew plenty of non West Ham who used to go to the Boleyn and pay £9 on the door around the late 1980's / early 1990's because they simply fancied taking in a game. Some Liverpool supporting Essex mates used to join me on occasion.
If you are in favour of affordable tickets then you have to accept this is more likely to happen, as it would happen at any ground, any club.
Surely the state of the art turnstiles registers the tickets that have been used. I'm obviously not talking about missing one game, but if by Christmas the computer highlights a ticket has been to less than say 60% of games. The person should be written to reminding them there is waiting list, with people who want to go.
Surely lots of empty seats is not what us or the club wants.
I think the problems is the seats are not technically 'empty' in the eyes of the owners. Isn't this the problem Arsenal have? Every game is a sell out, but a slightly more monied fan isn't bothered about shifting a ticket if he/she can't be bothered to attend. hence loads of empty seats.
Can definitely see this being a problem. If you have a £50 ticket you'll want to shift it. But what if it's £15?
They'll be doing a loyalty type points system the same as Man City, you'll get points for attending home games, spending it the shop etc
So they'll know if the ST has been used, but that's your choice once you've paid, whether £1100 or £289
£99 spares are either kids seats or spares as the salesmen pitched when buying.
saying we've Sold Out is more important, plus increases the interest.
Unless we're **** !!!
Exactly, if West Ham were away or didn't have a game then we used to go and watch someone else. I used to live walking distance from Fulham and would sometimes decide on the day to wander down. If tickets are cheap people are going to be more open to going to random games but I think the days of decide on the day have gone.
