West Ham fans bring over 30,000 fans to matches at home on a regular basis. This has been the case all season even though we have been relegated. For example, against Doncaster (bottom of the league) we still managed to bring 34,650 fans along to the match.
On top of this, we have been taking thousands of fans to other teams stadiums all over the country (and outside of the country for the case of Cardiff). In fact, we have been selling out the away sections at many other teams home stadiums regularly.
The fact that we have been allocated a similar amount of seats as we have at our own stadium (Upton Park) is not right. Since this is a final and we are 12th most supported club in English football (including the Premier League) and most supported club in the Championship, this is not right.
These statistics back me up:
In comparison, Blackpool have been getting just over 10,000 fans for their matches. I will give credit to them for selling over 25,000 tickets already which is a massive achievement, but a lot of these fans will not be regular season ticket holders and/or would not have been to many matches this season and possibly not so many matches in other seasons.
So I hope you are willing to change the ratio of West Ham seats to Blackpool seats in Wembley to favour West Ham.
