Ticket prices reduced for Stoke

West Ham United are pleased to confirm that ticket prices for the home Carling Cup last-16 match against Stoke City have been cut to just £15 for all adult season ticket holders and £5 for children who hold season tickets.

After insisting on significantly reduced prices for the second-round tie against Oxford United, the club were determined to continue to reward loyal supporters for their fantastic backing. The tie will be played at 7.45pm on Wednesday 27 October and will not be screened live on television.

Non-season ticket holders can sit anywhere for just £20 for adults and £10 for children. With a host of big names already eliminated from the competition and just 16 teams left to battle it out for the right to reach Wembley on 27 February, it promises to be a big night at the Boleyn.

Chairman David Sullivan said: "We are pleased we can once again offer significantly reduced prices to our loyal fans. After the terrific performance away to Sunderland in the previous round, everyone was delighted to get a home draw in the last 16.

"We know that if we win this match we are two rounds from Wembley and a packed stadium can only help the manager and his team. Like the Fulham Kids for a Quid match this weekend, we are keen to give something back to our young fans who are the future of the club."

Tickets will go on sale to season ticket holders from Thursday 30 September to Monday 11 October, before club members get their exclusive chance to purchase on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 October. General sale will begin from Thursday 14 October onwards, with demand expected to be high for a contest that could see the club reach the quarter-finals.
