Having already angered the fanbase by announcing a price increase to season tickets, the club have a load of supporters talking after pushing back the renewal date.
The decision comes after discussions were held between the club and the Official Supporters Board, and will see the deadline now set at May 31 rather than the previously scheduled May 17.
May 17 will act as the final day for those wishing to apply for the payment plan, however, and anyone wishing to relocate their season ticket cannot apply until after the postponed overall renewal deadline – the application process for this will commence on June 3.
The Official Supporters Board have managed to get the club to agree to a delay in the deadline for renewals, as they felt it would be wise to allow fans to take into account the May payday, rather than having to shell out midway through the month.
If you are aiming to renew your away season ticket, though, bare in mind that the deadline for this will be during the middle of the month, as this was only extended to May 17.
When the announcement was shared on the West Ham Help Twitter feed, here’s what you had to say…
Is the 52% price increase in a kids ticket still going ahead then?

Pretty poor attempt really. Of course the club are happy to shove it back 2 weeks and give (more) fans a chance to renew.
Will only assume the renewal rate isn’t glorious just yet, despite their claims
If someone has to change something, it means they did it wrong originally

Did you discuss how a 11% increase is fair?

Any chance the price was reduced too

Is that an attempt at face saving ????

Glad that common sense has prevailed at last. Still personally believe that the increase is too much in one hit and should have been phased in other a number of years
