Play-off Final Ticket Arrangements

West Ham United is pleased to be able to confirm the dates and selling arrangements should we be involved in the 2003/2004 Division 1 Play Off Final on Saturday 29th May.

Whilst we have still to receive exact details of our possible allocation for the Final the Football League has confirmed that it would be a minimum of 30,000 tickets.

We are obviously delighted that this number would ensure that every current season ticket holder would have the chance to obtain a ticket.

Members of the away match ticket scheme will automatically be debited and allocated a ticket and the Club would like to thank the 230 season ticket holders who have travelled to every away match this season for their support throughout.

As advertised in recent match day programmes and on the official website, season ticket holders who enrolled within the automatic cup scheme will also be debited and allocated a Final ticket.

Again, as advertised through the channels above, the ticket office are still accepting postal applications from season ticket holders and club members only. We regret that, due to the number of tickets likely to be allocated and anticipated demand from season ticket holders and club members, we are unable to accept general applications.

The cut off date for all postal applications is Wednesday 12th May.

Should we be successful over the home and away leg all remaining tickets, with the exception of Bondholder applications, will be sold via Ticketmaster, both by telephone and online.

We have taken this step in an attempt to offer our season ticket holders and club members as quick and efficient a service as possible at what would undoubtedly be a very busy period.

Following the recent high demand for Fulham FA Cup replay tickets and for Play Off semi final tickets we are keen to minimise the inconvenience for our supporters of either queuing at the ticket office or on the telephone. Whilst there may still be some waiting time experienced through Ticketmaster the number of operators available will ensure that supporters are dealt with far more promptly then would have been the case if ticket sales had been processed in house.

Selling dates would be as follows.

Season ticket holders - Thursday 20th to Friday 21st May

Club members - Saturday 22nd to Sunday 23rd May

Ticket prices and charges are as set out below. We regret that Ticketmaster's charge is higher then their usual booking fee to reflect the additional cost of processing tickets supplied by the Football League rather than printed in house.
Ticket Face Value    Customer Service Charge
£52.00                         £2.60
£46.00                         £2.60
£38.00                         £2.60
£28.00                         £2.60

Concession sales  £1.50

Please note that there would be an additional £1.75 per transaction fee for tickets sent by 1st class post. Supporters will have the option of having tickets posted by Special Delivery at a cost of £4.85.

Further details including Bondholders sales will be announced in the home leg semi final programme on Tuesday 18th May.
