The West Ham United Independent Support Association (WHUISA) have released the results of a recent survey conducted amongst season ticket-holding Hammers fans.

The survey, which gathered the views of more than 1,400 season ticket holders asked those polled to respond to 12 questions relating to the club's ticketing policy - resulting in the following findings:

* Less than 20 per cent of supporters feel their season ticket is better value for money at the London Stadium compared to the Boleyn Ground

* More than half claimed they would give up their season ticket at the end of the season if prices rise between 5-10 per cent

* Almost 90 per cent of season ticket holders believe they should have first choice ahead of club members on ALL away tickets

* Almost two-thirds of voters believe away matches at distant locations shoulld generate more points than 'local' away games

* More than four in every five season ticket holders polled have been fraustrated in their attempts to purchase tickets for an away fixture

WHUISA's Paul Turner explained: "Running for a little over three weeks in January 2018, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association ran the ticket survey. The survey was open to members and non members, focusing on a wide range of issues relating to ticketing.

"The survey was run to get a gauge on how people felt on certain issues regarding the obtaining of away match tickets, as well as potential ways to obtain away tickets for future matches if people were currently not able to do so.

"We at WHUISA are happy now to report the results of the survey for all to see, again proving engagement with the wider fan base (as is a main purpose of our existence) as well as our membership.

"We are here to serve you and thank you all for your continued support. We cannot continue without that support so please sign up today for only 1."
