West Ham freeze season-ticket prices for 2017/18 season as Andy Carroll hails London Stadium

West Ham United have given their fans a major boost after freezing their season-ticket prices for next season.

The east London club promised to give their fans affordable family football at London Stadium and have stuck to their word after announcing a price freeze for the 2017/18 campaign.

Under-16s can continue to watch their Premier League idols in action for just £99 which is the joint cheapest in the country, while the lowest Adult price remains at £289.

Striker Andy Carroll is thrilled with the news and hopes to keep playing in front of a sell-out crowd at London Stadium on a regular basis over the next few years.

Carroll said: “It is great that the club are freezing the prices and that can only be good for families who come to watch West Ham and good Premier League football.

“It is a good stadium. The first year was always going to be hard with people finding their feet and the fans getting to know the stadium. The atmosphere will only get stronger.

“It is an incredible stadium and even from the outside when we arrive on a match day, it looks fantastic. I am sure it is intimidating for the opposition when they see the size of the ground.

“We have got a new training ground as well and the stadium is fantastic so I don’t see why we cannot attract the big name players.”

West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan and David Gold are determined to give something back to the loyal fans who have overcome a big change to settle into their new home.

The club faced a number of issues at the start of the season, but have worked hard to cut down on the trouble which was taking place inside the Stadium and have now put a number of measures in place to ensure fans can enjoy the best possible match day experience.

Sullivan and Gold said: “When London Stadium became our new home last summer, we were adamant that the move should benefit our most loyal supporters.

“We promised to provide affordable Premier League football for our 52,000 founding Season Ticket Holders, and that promise is ongoing.

“It was important for us to reward the loyalty of our Season Ticket Holders, and to say thank you for the unwavering support of the team during our historic inaugural season at London Stadium.

“The devotion, ideas, passion and commitment our supporters have shown has been truly overwhelming and reinforced what we have always known – that West Ham United is a family.”

Sullivan and Gold are determined to make the squad even stronger during the summer and insist they will use the money from season-ticket renewals to bring in even more quality players in the future.

They added: “Looking ahead to next season, we are intent on delivering success on the pitch for our supporters.

“As always, every single penny generated from Season Ticket sales will be re-invested in the playing squad, and we will be working hard in the summer transfer window to identify the players we believe will strengthen the team and bring us further success.

“As the custodians of this football club, we are absolutely committed to that objective.

“In the meantime, we hope that all supporters enjoy the rest of this season, as Slaven and the players aim to secure the highest finish possible in the top half of the Premier League.”
