West Ham missing out on huge finances after London Stadium real attendance was revealed

West Ham were 13,000 fans short of the official attendance announced against Leicester City in August, according to Claret & Hugh.

They claim that the Irons’ real attendance against the Foxes was 47,000, suggesting that a huge number of season ticket holders are refusing to take their seats.

They then claim that if these were re-sold on a ticket exchange site, they could generate an extra £500,000 per match and £10million throughout the whole season, which is pretty incredible, really.

West Ham missing out on huge amounts of money.

It seems as if despite the recent success on the field, there are still a large number of Irons supporters who refuse to attend the games.

Now, it is unclear why this is the case, but you could probably guess that it has something to do with David Sullivan, David Gold, and Karen Brady, who remain deeply unpopular.

Now, Claret & Hugh’s predictions are just rough calculations, but you could argue that the Irons are missing out on a huge amount of money.

However, that isn’t the most important thing, and it is a shame that such huge numbers of passionate Irons fans choose to stay away from home games, despite having season tickets.

If you look at it from that point of view, then you just have to say that it is really sad to see such vast amounts of people avoiding games, despite the club performing well on the pitch.

Clearly, there are still many Hammers fans upset with certain elements of their club.
