West Ham United Flag at London Stadium

Important notice for supporters

In recent matches at London Stadium, there have been a number of people who have entered the pitch, either during or after the match has finished.

We strongly remind everyone it is a criminal offence under Football (Offences) Act 1991 to enter the pitch without prior permission.

During our recent UEFA Europa League quarter final first leg tie against Olympique Lyonnais, we sadly witnessed a number of individuals run on to the pitch. This not only disrupts the match, but also has to be managed as a serious security risk to all players, officials and everyone in the stadium.

All the individuals who encroached on to the pitch were caught by our stewards and subsequently identified. These individuals, and others who have encroached onto the pitch recently, have received lengthy bans from London Stadium. They have also had their Season Tickets from the Club terminated, lost any priority points and benefits accrued with their Season Ticket, and their details have been passed on to the police for further investigation.

If anyone is thinking of doing this, please refrain, as all football clubs and the police are taking this matter extremely seriously.

All perpetrators of public order offences, which includes pitch encroaching and other recent incidents of throwing objects and use of pyrotechnics, will receive lengthy stadium bans and further possible legal sanctions.
