Season tickets sold out

West Ham United have sold their entire allocation of season tickets for the forthcoming 2017/18 season - two weeks later than last year.

Following the arrival of a string of new players such as Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere, Hammers fans have been picking up the remaining available season tickets for the new season, which begins next month.

And on Monday, the club announced that they had sold the full allocation of 52,000 for the third successive season - albeit 17 days later than last year, when the same allocation was sold out by 6 July.

"Yet again, our magnificent supporters have shown they are the best in the country," co-owner David Sullivan told West Ham's website. "To have completely sold out available season tickets weeks before the new season kicks-off is testament to their unrivalled backing of the club.

“There is a huge amount of excitement surrounding the club at present following the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini as manager and this has been reflected in the demand for season tickets."

Whilst the club will be delighted at having fulfilled their 52,000 quota once again, the manner in which they have achieved it has been the subject of much controversy in recent weeks.

Although West Ham have consistently claimed to host a waiting list comtaining the names of some 48,000 supporters, the weight of evidence suggests that many names had been added to the list erroneously.

This has been confirmed by the number of supporters who have received calls from the club stating they are members of the waiting list, despite never having applied to join it.
