Buying West Ham Resale Tickets with Ticket Compare

Ticket Compare is a resale ticket platform comparing prices among a select group of trusted secondary marketplaces and official hospitality resellers. All of the sites featured on our platform have been reviewed with an anonymous purchase and subject to a stringent check, testing everything from customer service to matchday experience. We can provide:

  • Tickets for every WHUFC match
  • 100% Authentic West Ham Tickets
  • Location and seat filters to find the seat that is right for you

Around 1,190,000 fans come to watch West Ham at London Stadium every season. This is officially the second-largest ground in the Premier League. So, you might think that a bigger capacity offers more availability to buy WHUFC tickets through official channels.

Well this isn’t exactly the case. An amazing 55,000 of London Stadium’s 62,500 seats are already occupied by West Ham Season Ticket holders.

No club in the Premier League has as many as that. Compare the tally to Manchester United for example, with 50,000 in a much larger, 74,310-capacity stadium.

Almost all West Ham United matches sell out, and the limited availability of primary market tickets means you cannot expect any WHUFC matches to reach general sale. Fortunately, there’s always availability on Ticket Compare, whether you want general admission or a high-end hospitality experience.

How to Buy West Ham Tickets on Ticket Compare

Just click on the green "Tickets" button beside the fixture you prefer. This will lead you to a page displaying a stadium plan and a list of available seats. Here you can filter options based on price and seat location.

Each seat is marked with a particular resale marketplace. For added assurance, you can view our independent reviews of these websites on our ticket site reviews page.

Once you select your seat, you will be redirected to the respective website to finalise your purchase.

Receiving Your West Ham Tickets

Tickets for WHUFC games are only released seven days before a match. If you’re buying West Ham tickets on the secondary market you can expect them as late as the day of the match. If you’re concerned about these tight deadlines you can always contact the resale sites, as they have excellent customer service.

Today, WHUFC tickets are digital. These may be NFC tickets (near-field communication) or e-tickets that you can scan from your phone or print off. Be sure to have your Apple Wallet, Google Pay wallet, or PDF ready to scan, as the turnstile queue moves quickly.

Tips for Buying WHUFC Resale Tickets for the First Time

  • Know Your Rights: As a customer, you have rights. Every website listed on our platform outlines their terms and conditions
  • Name on Ticket: Sometimes, resale WHUFC tickets may have someone else’s name on them, but they will still work at the turnstile
  • Expect Higher Prices: Be prepared to pay more than the original WHUFC ticket price, also known as the ‘face value’
  • Read Refund Policies: Carefully review the refund policies to avoid disappointment
  • Late Ticket Delivery: It’s common to receive West Ham tickets within 24 hours of kick-off so don’t panic
  • Contact Customer Service: Feel free to reach out to resale marketplaces, as they usually have responsive and helpful customer service.

West Ham Ticket Prices

The prices of West Ham secondary market tickets come down to supply and demand. You can usually expect to pay above face value for the most in-demand matches, against London rivals or the biggest clubs in the Premier League.

Going through the club’s official channels, adult general admission West Ham ticket prices are between £35 and £120. These prices depend on criteria such as the Match Category (AAA-C), and the seat Band, ranging from 1 for the most expensive locations to 6 for the cheapest.

Handy Information about West Ham Tickets

If you’re purchasing WHUFC tickets through official channels, they usually go on sale between six and eight weeks before a fixture. This relatively small window exists to avoid ticketing issues when matches are reorganised because of broadcast schedules or cup fixture clashes.

On the secondary market, West Ham United tickets will go on sale as soon as the fixture list is announced in the summer.

It’s always worth remembering that Premier League fixtures are not set in stone, so keep an eye on the schedule to make sure the game is going ahead when you expect. Remember that ticket resale sites do not offer refunds for rescheduled games.

Buying West Ham Tickets through the Club

WHUFC Claret Members have a big advantage when it comes to buying Premier League home tickets on the primary market.

They have access to an exclusive 24-hour Priority Window to snap up the remaining 4,000 or so seats before they are offered to the public. As a result, very few West Ham matches do go to general sale. Claret Members can also take advantage of a £5 discount on every seat.

Buying WHUFC Away Tickets

A large contingent of West Ham’s 55,000 Season Ticket holders goes to Premier League away games. This makes purchasing tickets for WHUFC away games almost impossible if you’re going through the club box office.

Away matches are nearly always over-subscribed, with priority given to WHUFC Bond Holders and West Ham Season Ticket holders with the most Priority Points.

Season Ticket holders earn Priority Points by attending away games, as well as home and away cup matches. On the day that West Ham away tickets go on sale, a typical sales schedule will look a bit like this:

9+ points: 9 AM

8+ points: 10 AM

7+ points: 11 AM

6+ points: 12 PM

This will continue until the tickets are sold. If there are any tickets left, WHUFC Members have an opportunity, and then in theory the allocation will go on general sale. Safe to say, this never happens.

West Ham Bondholders

When it comes to WHUFC ticketing, West Ham’s 808 Bondholders have a host of privileges. Essentially these are long-term fans who invested in the club to help renovate Upton Park in the early 1990s.

These were originally sold in three price categories: £500, £750 and £950. Today WHUFC Bonds change hands for as much as £10,000 between holders.

In gratitude, WHUFC Bondholders enjoy a ton of benefits over other fans, including priority status on West Ham Season Tickets, WHUFC home tickets and away tickets.

West Ham United Hospitality

There’s always a variety of premium WestHam tickets to browse. WHUFC matchday hospitality is ideal if you want a little more luxury, but can also be an option if there’s a match that you can’t afford to miss, and other tickets have sold out.

Since moving to London Stadium in 2016, West Ham’s matchday hospitality offer is on a totally different level. The stadium’s various lounges are found in the West Stand, under the Club London umbrella. They are all served by a single entrance at Turnstile B and offer the following basic perks:

  • Luxury padded seating
  • Extended pre-match and post-match access
  • Complimentary half-time drinks
  • A complimentary matchday programme

So let’s have a look at Club London’s main lounges in descending order of luxury:

  • The Boleyn - A casual sports bar in the lower tier, evoking West Ham United’s rich history
  • The Londoner - Like a pub, but with a family-friendly ambience, contemporary design, and mid-tier seating
  • The Great Briton - A kind of family restaurant, with an exclusive reception, three-course dining, and seating in the mid-tier and upper tier
  • The Forge - An informal but upscale restaurant in the lower tier, with three-course dining
  • The Royal East - A high-end dining experience, combined with interactions with former Hammers, an exclusive reception, and some of the best seats in the stadium
  • Arnold Hills - The club’s top lounge has seating next to the Directors’ Box, and offers waiter service, an exclusive reception, meet & greets with former players, and inclusive drinks

For extra exclusivity you could also opt for an Executive Box, offering personal interactions with a WHUFC legend, while BM6 is West Ham’s exclusive invitation-only club.

West Ham Match Days at London Stadium

A question that comes up often is: Do West Ham fans like the new stadium? There’s no easy answer, but most fans knew the move from Upton Park was necessary to help the club grow. Some benefits of London Stadium compared to the old ground are:

  • A massive capacity jump from 35,000 to 62,500
  • Scope for future expansion beyond 70,000
  • Improved transport links via Stratford interchange station
  • A modern venue with Olympic history and still hosting international events
  • Explosion in matchday revenues, from £18M at old stadium to £41M in 2022-23

Fair to say that West Ham makes a lot of money from London Stadium, in exchange for just £4m a year in rent. The good news is that the stadium is also starting to feel like home. The club has taken steps to make that possible:

  • Three stands have been named after West Ham heroes: Bobby Moore (North Stand), Billy Bonds (East Stand) and Trevor Brooking (South Stand)
  • The seating has also been moved closer to the pitch, and has been squared off to make it feel more like a football stadium
  • Fans who want a rowdy atmosphere have moved near each other, mostly on the shortside lower stands, but also next to the away fans in the West Stand. Check out these locations in our guide to the London Stadium seating plan.

Getting to West Ham United FC

London Stadium is a few minutes on foot from one of London’s public transport hubs. Stratford is the busiest London Underground station outside of the city centre (Zone 1), and has the fifth-busiest railway station in the country.

You can get there via:

  • Greater Anglia and c2c trains
  • Southeastern High Speed 1 services (via Stratford International)
  • The Docklands Light Railway (DLR)
  • London Underground’s Jubilee and Central lines
  • London Overground
  • More than a dozen TFL bus lines, including the 388, which runs to and from London Bridge Station

Now, after that you do have to walk to London Stadium. Allow plenty of time, because this can take up to 20 minutes, even when there’s low traffic.

London Stadium Ticket Office

The ticket office at London Stadium is on the south-east side, by Entrance E. This is attached to the Stadium Store building with external windows that are open on matchdays. At any other time on non-matchdays, the ticket office facilities can be found inside this building.

Things to Do Around London Stadium

One of the advantages of West Ham’s stadium is that it’s in an exciting part of East London, regenerated for the 2012 Olympics. There are a few things to get up to locally if you have London Stadium tickets:

  • Browse Westfield Stratford City, the largest urban shopping centre in the UK with 350+ tenants on three floors
  • Climb the monumental 114.5-metre ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, and built for the 2012 Olympics
  • Hang out in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, still home to numerous Olympic venues, including the Lee Valley VeloPark, the multi-sport Copper Box Arena, and the London Aquatics Centre

Now, something to keep in mind about the Olympic Park and London Stadium is that it’s prone to queues. There are a few things to help you deal with that:

  • Turnstiles open 90 minutes before kick-off so there’s no harm in arriving early when it’s quiet
  • You can take advantage of ‘Early Bird’ offers, including savings of up to £2 on food (burgers, nachos) combined with pints
  • London Stadium is fully cashless to further reduce lines

Visiting Fans at London Stadium

West Ham offers an away allocation of approximately 3,000 seats. The away blocks at London Stadium are spread across the upper and lower tiers, in the south-west corner of the ground.

These are 117-120 in the lower tier and 218-220 in the upper tier. You arrive via Entrance D in the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand. See how this matches up with other grounds in our article about Premier League away allocations.

West Ham United Membership

West Ham United FAQs

What is the nickname for West Ham Fans?

Hammers, or Irons. Both of these names hark back to the club’s 1895 origins as Thames Ironworks Football Club, founded by workers of the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company (1837-1910). That club was dissolved in 1900 and reformed as West Ham United that same year.

Why are West Ham claret and blue?

The official explanation is that claret and sky blue were the official house colours of the Thames Ironworks. A popular legend credits the colours to Aston Villa. The story goes that a group of Villa players lost a bet to the Olympic springer, William Dove, who beat them in a race. They handed him their kits instead of payment. Dove’s son, Charlie went on to play for West Ham, and used the former Aston Villa kit he received from his father, and it was then adopted by the club.

Who is West Ham’s biggest rival?

Millwall F.C. Despite being located across the river in Bermondsey today, Millwall were based in East London until 1910. Both teams had roots in East London’s dockyards, and when they played the match was known as the Dockers Derby. The teams have met 99 times: West Ham have won 34 matches, Millwall have won 38, and 27 have resulted in draws.

What was West Ham’s old ground called?

West Ham’s old stadium was the Boleyn Ground, more commonly known as Upton Park. West Ham played there from 1904 until moving to London Stadium at the start of the 2016-17 season. The ground sat directly east of Green Street House, a stately home dating back to the 16th century but demolished in 1955. According to local legend, King Henry VIII’s second wife, Anne Boleyn lived there for a time in the 16th century, which is where the Boleyn Ground’s name comes from.

Why is it called West Ham if it’s in East London?

West Ham is named for an area by the River Lea in East London. The name comes from the Old English word, 'hamm', which means 'a dry area of land between rivers or marshland'. It was originally known as the Manor of Ham, but this area was then divided into two territories, a West Ham and an East Ham, around the late 10th century.

How Did the ‘West Ham Are Massive’ Chant Begin?

A combination of two things brought the chant about. The first was former defender, Craig Dawson calling the club massive when he signed in 2020. Then his words were adapted to an existing chant, ‘Tottenham Get Battered’ to create a phenomenon that can be heard at stadiums up and down the country.
