How to buy West Ham tickets: Prices, membership, essential guide to cheap Premier League tickets 2023/24

West Ham tickets are in demand yet still accessible. The club's move from the Boleyn Ground at Upton Park to the venue of the London Olympics in 2012 at Stratford, East London has proven to be controversial and not popular with the fanbase, but it has provided optimism.

A new generation of supporters has been able to obtain season tickets to support the Hammers whilst the 2022/23 campaign saw the stadium provide the backdrop for a successful UEFA Europa Conference League campaign which ended with a glory night in Prague to land the first major silverware for West Ham since lifting the FA Cup in 1980.

West Ham season tickets: Pricing, availability

West Ham confirmed that they sold the most season tickets in England for the 2023/24 season, as well as boasting the highest crowds in London. Massive, as they say!

A West Ham season ticket ensures entry for every Premier League game as well as ensuring priority for all other cup and European games to be played at home.

The Hammers offer a varied range of prices for their tickets, from some of the most affordable in the Premier League to excessive, premium pricing for the top seats.

Those prices start, for adults, at just £310.00 in Band 6 up to £1,105.00 in Band 1, with higher prices demanded available for exclusive options such as the 1966 range, named after England’s World Cup-winning exploits and closely associated with legendary West Ham figures such as Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters who lifted the Jules Rimet trophy.

To join the waiting list to purchase a season ticket at West Ham, fans must first join the club membership scheme including the Priority List which costs £10.00 but that is later taken off the price of the full ticket.

West Ham matchday tickets and single-match tickets: Pricing, availability

Premier League tickets can be hard to secure, especially in London, but the good news is that you can get single-match tickets for West Ham.

For single tickets which are available on ‘General Sale', all that you need to do is create a basic West Ham Account on the ticketing website which will only take a couple of minutes to complete.

From there, you can complete the purchase and then make plans to get along to the London Stadium to cheer on David Moyes' men.

Do I need a membership to buy West Ham tickets?

As stated above, no membership is required to buy West Ham tickets on general sale. 

However, if you want to have a chance for the bigger games, European packages, away tickets or to go on the season ticket waiting list then you will need to join the club membership scheme.

Anyone can join and memberships are available at the time of writing for the current 2023/24 season.

West Ham tickets FAQs

How to get to the London Stadium at West Ham

It is advisable to use public transport on your journey to support West Ham.

The London Stadium is served by three railway stations all of which are around a 10-15 minute walk away. These are Stratford, Stratford International and Hackney Wick. The stadium and stations are well-signposted around the area.

Stratford Station is located next to the large Westfield Shopping Centre. It is the main station in the area, as not only does it have overground connections to London Liverpool Street and Clapham Junction, but it also has an Underground station which is located both on the Jubilee and Central tube lines. In addition, it is also located on the Docklands Light Railway.

Stratford International Railway Station is located on the other side of Westfield Shopping Centre and is served by local services from London St Pancras, the journey time from which is just seven minutes. It is also located on the Docklands Light Railway.

Hackney Wick Railway Station is located on the opposite (West) side of the stadium compared to the Stratford Stations and Westfield Shopping Centre. It is served by trains from Clapham Junction, Richmond and Stratford. It also stops at Highbury and Islington, which is also situated on the Victoria Tube line and can be handy for those fans travelling down to London Euston, which is around 20 minutes journey time away. Please note that due to its limited size, fans are being discouraged from using Hackney Wick. However, it is open on matchdays and if you arrive in good time, it will be fine to use before the match. After the game it might not be a good choice, as the trains arriving at Hackney Wick, will probably be already jam-packed with fans who will have already got on at the preceding Stratford Station.

How can I get West Ham away tickets?

West Ham away tickets, as with all clubs, are difficult to obtain and are not freely available.

Tickets can be purchased by members and season ticket holders with a loyalty points balance, in line with how the club operates its allocation for away fixtures.

The number of tickets available depends on the size of the opposition stadium with Premier League regulations stating that away clubs should receive a minimum of 3,000 tickets unless the capacity is less than 30,000, in which case the home club must allocate at least 10% of that figure.

An alternative exists, with ‘touts' on the streets at the stadium in what is effectively a black market as well as resale sites online. Some of these are more reputable than others, you will often pay well over face value and you should always be alert for scammers.

How can I get cheap West Ham tickets?

The key to securing cheap West Ham tickets is to make your purchase as early as possible. Tickets will always be cheaper for members, or even for those registered, for general sale fixtures.

FA Cup or Carabao Cup fixtures in the early rounds are always the cheapest tickets compared to Premier League or European games, whilst seats behind the net are cheaper compared to the stands along the side of the pitch.

Can I do a stadium tour of the London Stadium?

Yes, tours are available at the London Stadium.

A range of different tours are offered by the club, both on a matchday and at other times during the week and you can be accompanied by a club legend as you take in the sights.

You will get to see behind the scenes, walk down the tunnel, have a seat in the dugout and much more, with a discount included for the West Ham coffee shop.
