A message from the Joint-Chairmen

White Hart Lane


Joint-Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold have penned a message to fans travelling to White Hart Lane...

Firstly, we would like to thank you for purchasing a ticket for Saturday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur. We sold out our ticket allocation in a matter of days, for a fixture which required 12 Priority Points for purchase, so it just illustrates the anticipation and level of commitment from our loyal supporters. 
With 2,300 travelling Hammers packing the away end and roaring Slaven's side on from the first minute to the last, it should be a special occasion for all and hopefully we can come away with a positive result.
Everyone of us at the Club, on the Board and in the stands on Saturday will be looking forward to another London derby and, following recent victories over Crystal Palace and Chelsea, we are hopeful that we can put in another good performance.
You, the West Ham fans, have of course played a key role in these wins, and in helping turn our form around this season, by backing the team and helping us over the line with your incredible support.
Saturday’s game at White Hart Lane is another opportunity to show the passion that makes our fans famous around the world, and to illustrate the effect your support can have on the team throughout the game.
We also must remember that every supporter attending the game is acting as an ambassador for West Ham United and their behaviour should reflect the values and standards of our great Club.
At West Ham United we are truly proud of our support for causes that promote tolerance, inclusion and tackle discrimination in whatever form it takes.
Let us prove on Saturday that there is simply no place in football for abuse, discrimination or bigotry of any form, and ensure that football, and a hopefully a great result for the Hammers, are what people are talking about on Sunday morning.
In the event that you happen to see or hear anything you think is unacceptable on the day, it is important that you report anything of this nature to the relevant authorities to ensure it is investigated fully.
In the first instance, you may choose to speak to the nearest steward or police officer. Alternatively, you can report any inappropriate behaviour anonymously by texting or calling 07537 404821, where all information provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
As at home matches, the Club operate a zero tolerance policy and will seek banning orders for anybody who is proven to be in contravention of this policy.
We, and everyone else at West Ham United, are very much looking forward to Saturday’s game and the Claret and Blue Army showing the world what being a football fan is all about - supporting with pride, passion and respect.
Come on you Irons!

David Sullivan & David Gold
