West Ham United season 2016/17

The London Borough of Newham invested in the Stadium to ensure it delivered a lasting legacy from the 2012 Games and deliver significant benefits for Newham residents, London and the nation.
We work closely with West Ham United Football Club and other partners and stakeholders to maximise the number of free and discounted tickets available for Newham residents.

Newham residents are always the priority for these tickets and we do all we can to ensure as many residents as possible have access to any free tickets.

Ticket offers are promoted through the Mayor’s Free Ticket Giveaway in the Newham Mag, our social media channels and on our website. Thousands of interested residents have signed up to the scheme and are notified via email when tickets are available which are then distributed through a random automatic ballot process.

We work closely with our schools to ensure local schoolchildren benefit from the council’s investment in the stadium.

We also distribute tickets through our Community Neighbourhood programme to reward residents who are active and resilient members of the community and to support the work of local community groups.

A high proportion of our staff are Newham residents. Occasionally when the council have access to tickets at short notice, these are made available to our staff. This is the most efficient and quickest method of distributing tickets and ensures Newham residents still benefit. Particular effort is made to ensure front-line staff such as our cleansing, waste and recycling teams and social workers benefit from these tickets.

Free tickets are not the only community benefits secured for residents. Other community benefits secured as a result of the council’s investment in the stadium include:
  • Free 1,000 places for Newham residents to take part in the Simplyhealth Great Newham London Run plus 250 free places for families for the Simplyhealth Family Run
  • The council has hire-free access to the stadium for 10 events a year for large scale community events
  • Year-round affordable access for Newham schools and local clubs to a new floodlit 400m London Marathon Charitable Trust Community Track and full size community football pitch, which will also be home to Newham and Essex Beagles
  • A dedicated training and education centre in the Stadium, operated by Newham Council
  • Local people to benefit from jobs and apprenticeships opportunities, a target of 75% of opportunities to be filled by Newham residents.

Newham Council Host

The council ensures that at every match a Host is available. Typically a senior officer or elected member, that individual is responsible for logistics on the day, including coordinating the arrival of guests, venue liaison and discharging any action points agreed between the council, its guests and any other stakeholder at the match.


Use of hospitality

Hospitality is a separate arrangement to the general admission tickets offer for Newham residents. The hospitality offer is designed to attract business, sponsorship, investment and other opportunities to the borough.

The use of the Londoner Claret Lounge and Royal East Lounge by Newham Council is included within the agreement between E20 partnership (of which Newham is a joint partner along with the London Legacy Development Corporation) and the London Stadium.

The lounge and box is used by Newham Council to build relationships with senior external stakeholders and to promote the borough to other interested parties. These stakeholders and parties include: other local authorities; Nova International who deliver the Great Newham London Run, the English Cricket Board, local journalists and education partners such as UEL and UTC.
