Distribution of West Ham’s Away Tickets.
We wrote to you on behalf of our members on September 26th seeking engagement on the subject of transparency.Unfortunately you have not replied to date so we are still left guessing as to exact figures re.distribution of our away tickets.
Claret and Hugh recently ran an article giving the figures laid out below.They apparently have sources close to the club and were present at the ticketing OSB.meeting so in the absence of your reply we will take them as fact:-
There are 808 Bondholders.Up to 300 claim a ticket for big away games.
90 tickets are made available to players,staff and their families.
Up to 10% are allocated to registered disabled though only a few take this up.
Up to 200 are allocated to Club London members.
10% are reserved for general ballot except when allocation is very small.
700 are allocated to Away Season Ticket holders.
Rest are sold to Season ticket holders with the highest priority points.
Using these figures Jake the number of tickets left for priority points applicants seems too low.Our members really would be grateful if you could release figures so that the they and the fanbase in general can put this matter to bed once and for all.
We note that it is a regulatory requirement that the club has and publishes it’s ticketing policies.
Thank you in anticipation of your assistance in this matter.
