The organisers of the forthcoming protest march by West Ham United supporters have confirmed the route fans intend to take on 10 March.

The march, which is set to attact considerably more supprt than the 3,000 who took part in the Brown Out! protests some 15 years ago and which is being arranged in consultation with Newham Council and the Metropolitain Police will begin at 11.30am and start from Stratford Park, a stone's throw from Stratford police station.

The route begins at Stratford Park (right) and ends at the Olympic Park(left)

After a short march along Stratford High Road, the procession, which is being organised by the Real West Ham Fans Action Group will turn into Warton Road and then head directly towards the Olympic Stadium, where a series of speeches will be delivered before the event finishes well ahead of the West Ham v Burnley match.

The peaceful procession, which has been organised by the Real West Ham Fans Action Group to to which all generations of West Ham United supporters are welcomed, will be led by a series of hearses to signify the 'death' of West Ham United whilst a number of supporters intend to lay wreaths at the entrance to the stadium island.

Fans are marching in order to protest at the current Board's handling of the club since it was confirmed West Ham United would be moving to Stratford. Supporters are unhappy with various aspects of the stadium - some 5,000 fans failed to renew their season tickets after season one at the arena - whic many view as not-fit-for-purpose.

Additionally fans are unhappy with the lack of investment in key areas of the playing squad, the continued unwelcome and unnecessary appearances by members of the Board in the media and their broken promises, the numerous attempts to 'fleece' fans (via premium phone rate club lines, e-purse row, or attempts to renege on season ticket discount offers) and various other aspects regarding the club's current and future direction.
