OS operators apologies for missing seats

The operators behind the Olympic/London Stadium have apologised to West Ham fans who found the seats they had purchased tickets for didn't exist.

A fortnight ago KUMB reported that a number of supporters who had been sold seats for the Europa League clash with NK Domzale arrived at the OS to find rows of bare concrete blocks where their seats should have been.

And despite having had a fortnight to correct the error by installing seating, the operators were forced to apologise to Hammers fans again last night after the same thing happened to a number of fans against Bournemouth.


"London Stadium wish to apologise to those West Ham season ticket holders who were unable to sit in their allocated seats for Sunday's Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth," read a statement, posted via Twitter.

"An error in administration meant that a small number of supporters had to use alternative seats after the issue was recognised by our event stewards. All affected seats will be re-installed as a matter of priority ahead of Thursday's Europa League match [with Astra]."
