Who sold our season tickets?


Filed: Monday, 3rd October 2016

A pair of West Ham season ticket holders arrived at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday - to discover they had been banned and their season ticket seats sold.

KUMB member Liam J arrived with one of his two sons at the ground ahead of the match with Middlesbrough but was unable to enter, as his cards were rejected at the electronic turnstiles.

And when he enquired at the Ticket Office to ascertain what the problem was, he was informed that both season tickets had been cancelled.

This, he was told, was the result of a complaint made by an LS185 steward against Liam's other son, who has since been banned and is currently in dispute with the club over the circumstances leading to his omission from the ground (you may read more about that incident here).

"We went to the ticket office to be told our season tickets were cancelled," Liam told fellow KUMB Forum members. "After much hassle and with the intervention of Gavin, the Ticket Office manager, they finally acknowledged that this shouldn't have happened.

"They told us we would have to issue us with paper tickets for different seats - as all three of our seats had been sold for the match! You really couldn't make it up. The people in our seats were a lovely old fella with his wife and daughter!"

And as far as attending future matches is concerned, the experience has left Liam questioning whether or not he will continue to follow a club he has supported financially since the 1970s.

"To be honest I'm losing all enthusiasm for going," he added. "I have been a season ticket holder for the best part of 40 years and both my sons have been regulars from the age of five. I just don't know if I can be bothered anymore."
