New season tickets to be issued

West Ham supporters who were issued season tickets allowing them to enter the Olympic Stadium via turnstiles meant for away fans are being issued with new access cards.

Following a number of problems at the Bournemouth game, which occurred after home fans were asked to use the same turnstiles as away supporters, West Ham have announced that supporters housed in Blocks 216, 217 and 221 to 228 are to be sent new cards before the next home match against Watford.

That means fans in Blocks 216 and 217 will only be able to enter through Turnstile C, whilst those in 221 to 228 will have to use Turnstile E from hereon.




The club acted after Bournemouth fans posted videos on social media of home supporters being ushered into the away area by stewards in order to reach their seats. Further violent scenes involving the two groups of fans immediately outside the stadium are also thought to have forced the club to act.
