West Ham United are pleased to confirm that the Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City will now be a 'Kids for a Quid' fixture.
The second leg of the semi-final on Tuesday 21 January has been set as a 'Kids for a Quid' game, meaning any number of Under-16s can get into the ground for just £1 when accompanied by an adult.*
To thank fans for their unwavering support in following the Hammers over land and sea, the Club will also be offering a £10 discount on match tickets for three crucial upcoming Barclays Premier League away games.
Following extensive consultation with the Supporter Advisory Board, the Club will offer the discounts on the Premier League trips to Chelsea**, Stoke City and Sunderland to help soften the financial burden on those following the Hammers on their travels.
The trips to Stamford Bridge on 29 January, the Britannia Stadium on 15 March and the Stadium of Light a fortnight later will each be subject to the discount, meaning more Hammers fans should have the chance to follow the team at some of the most important remaining games.
This discount is offered as part of the Premier League's Away Fans' Fund, designed, in part, to reduce costs for away supporters. West Ham have already announced they are providing a host of offers, incentives and actions exclusively aimed at travelling supporters, including affordable tickets, reduced-price coach travel and enhanced matchday experiences.
That includes the commitment to six Kids for a Quid Premier League fixtures at the Boleyn Ground during the 2013/14 season, as well as the significant benefits of reduced booking fees, ticket prices and coach travel for Season Ticket holders and members.
An extensive rundown of all that the Club are doing in this regard can be read here.
West Ham United players and staff are hugely grateful to all those who take the time, effort and money to follow the Club away from home, even more so when the Club are experiencing tough times on the pitch.
Your support, as loud and proud as ever, is invaluable, and we will continue to do all that we can to reward your loyalty wherever possible.
Further details of the ticket discounts will be covered in whufc.com's ticket section in due course.
*Please note, any fan that has already purchased an Under-16 ticket for the Manchester City game will automatically have the difference refunded using their previous payment method.
**All Away Season Ticket Holders and supporters who have already purchased tickets for Chelsea will automatically receive the appropriate refund.
