West Ham United have announced that, as expected, season ticket prices at the Olympic Stadium have been frozen for next season.
And co-chairman David Sullivan and David Gold described the decision as their way of "rewarding the loyalty" of those supporters who have stuck with the club through a heavily-criticised migration policy and controversial first season in Stratford.
"When London Stadium became our new home last summer, we were adamant that the move should benefit our most loyal supporters.," said the co-owners via a pre-prepared statement. "We promised to provide affordable Premier League football for our 52,000 founding Season Ticket Holders, and that promise is ongoing.
"Today, we are delighted to announce a price freeze for all Season Ticket Holders renewing for the 2017-18 campaign. It was important for us to reward the loyalty of our Season Ticket Holders, and to say thank you for the unwavering support of the team during our historic inaugural season at London Stadium."
The press release also urged fans to renew early, repeating the claim that there are in excess of 50,000 supporters on a waiting list ready to snap up any returns - something that also applies to those wishing to move seat.
"This year, more than ever, it is important to renew before the deadline of Wednesday 31 May," it added, "as, with a 55,000-strong waiting list, any seats not renewed by the date will be made available on a priority basis to these supporters who are eager to become season ticket holders.
Furthermore, anyone wishing to relocate their seat must renew their existing seat at the earliest possible opportunity as seat relocations will be prioritised based on how early a Season Ticket Holder renews. "
A 10-month, low-interest finance option, for those requiring it will be available through V12 Season Ticket Finance whilst an interest-free four month option is also available. Interest rates have been reduced from 19.9 per cent to six per cent.
