West Ham announce 10 tickets for Sheffield clash

West Ham are hoping for a bumper crowd when Sheffield United come to town for the second round of the Capital One Cup after slashing ticket prices.

In a week when supporters from all over the country marched on the Premier League's HQ demanding fairer ticket pricing, West Ham have announced that adults supporters paying in advance will be able to purchase tickets to the game for just 10 each.

And children wishing to attend the game will pay just 5 each, with all prices rising by a fiver across the board on match day.

Tickets for the game - which will take place at the Boleyn Ground on Tuesday, 26 August (7.45pm kick off) - will be on sale to season ticket holders from tomorrow morning (Friday 15 August).

Those unsold will then go on sale to club members from Tuesday (19 August) general sale from next Wednesday (20 August). Sheffield United have been given the entire lower tier of the Trevor Brooking stand.

The meeting between the two clubs will be the first time the two Uniteds have met on the field of play since the 2006/07 season, when Sheffield United failed to earn enough points to avoid relegation before blaming West Ham for it.

As a result the Blades extorted around 25million from West Ham, who had already paid a world-record 5million fine for flouting Premier League rules prior to facing several arbitration panels (from which Sheffield eventually gained a verdict favourable to themselves).
