The Premier League club announced plans to meet with up to 40,000 people, inviting them to buy sears at the Olympic Stadium. Meanwhile corporate seats are selling out.
This April West Ham supporters will be given the first chance to secure their season tickets for the Olympic Stadium. To be eligible, one has to buy the last season ticket for Upton Park though, which is expected to be 5% more expensive than that for current campaign.
Every season ticket holder of over 20,000 at Upton Park can hope for an individual appointment in due time. Priority will of course be given to fans buying most expensive packages. They will be invited to visit the reservation center from April onwards. All season ticket holders should be served by February 2016. Each fan will be given a 3D visualization of their future seat at the Olympic Stadium.
Only after all 2015/16 season ticket holders get their seats, regular open sale will begin. Or won’t, because there may be no tickets left. The system gives every season ticket holder the right to bring two more people aboard, meaning the limit of available season tickets can be reached before February.
Separate reservation system operates for corporate seats. Various lounges and skyboxes in the west stands are very popular. The most prestigious lounge, The Forge 1895 (image left), was sold out by December 2014 and currently the Boleyn Pub is on sale along with other packages.
The pub will have 1,000 seats in the stands connected, offering every fan a drink at half-time and access to premium amenities. But the pleasure comes at a price: £500 upfront and then £140 (+VAT) every month.
