Following concerns expressed by many of our members we are putting the following statement out on Social Media.
Calling all West Ham’s Away Following.
The Club has appointed a committee to look into away games ticket distribution. Unfortunately this has been done without getting your direct views.
Suggestions made by those appointed have included removing away season tickets, ending priority points and entering everyone into a ballot for high demand games. There are also suggestions of bondholder abuse and the selling on of tickets.
Our away fans are our most loyal fans. It is unbelievable that these suggestions are being made without a survey of us.
There are genuine concerns about away ticket allocation that include the increased amount given as a priority to corporate, for example, and a lack of transparency as to how the allocations are made.
We urge you to have your say. For many of us travelling to and being at away games is a big part of our lives and there have been many hard earned miles.-And many thousands of pounds spent.
Sean Whetstone is running the survey.
It is worrying that the OSB are running this, it will be heavily biased as it's run from that site and not sent to the wider audience.
Sean has been asked to postpone the meeting to allow a greater canvassing of the fanbase and more fans to have their view but he has refused.
Please contact those running this survey to make your thoughts, whatever they are, clearly known. The survey does not reflect the concerns being expressed or allow for other questions. We suggest e mailing those appointed directly and copying to our e mail address below so we have a record and can publicise the findings.
If you go on the official site they have contact details for the OSB members
