Banned? I wasn't even there!

The owner of a flag that was displayed outside David Sullivan's house this morning has had his season tickets revoked by West Ham United.

However the individual in question claims that he wasn't even involved in the prank.

Earlier today a picture of the flag, tied to the gates at the Sullivan's Essex residence appeared on social media. And within a matter of hours, the owner of the flag was contacted and told that his two season tickets had been revoked - and that he was banned from purchasing tickets for the next THREE YEARS.



"I'd like to correct a few people who assumed I was present at Sullivan's property today," the owner wrote on the KUMB Forum.

"I was not there but as everybody knows, the flag is my property - and I've just had a call from the club to confirm I've had both of my season tickets revoked."

Last month an official, working on behalf of West Ham attempted to have a similar flag removed from the away end at Wembley Stadium on the night West Ham beat Tottenham 3-2 in the Carabao Cup.

That followed a similar attempt by stewards working for West Ham at removing anti-Board flags at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Today's ban is the second time in the past 12 months that the flag's owner has been suspended from the Olympic Stadium. His season tickets were previously revoked after he attempted to take the same flag into a home match - a ban that lasted just 24 hours following a backlash from other supporters.
