Sevilla slap €10,000 price on tickets for traveling West Ham fans

Sevilla host West Ham United in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie on Thursday, but any Hammers fans hoping to make the trip might have been shocked by ticket prices reaching almost €10,000.

With the cost of flights soaring to almost €1,000 between London and Seville this week and hotels and hostels all hiking their prices, West Ham supporters without a ticket may find themselves priced out of the stadium as well.

Marca says Sevilla want to deter away fans who don’t have tickets in the official away section (where West Ham have been given 3,000 tickets) and have blocked off certain sections of the ground as for club members only.

Sevilla fans will find prices starting at 35 euros, with members have access to discounts of up to 50 per cent. The Andalusian club want an intimidating atmosphere to give them an edge in the first leg and want to fill the ground with their own fans.

That’s also why tickets have been set at 9,999 euros for non-members in the two sections of the ground on either side of where the away fans will be, as they look to ensure that any West Ham fans hoping to sneak into the home end at least won’t be able to do so in large numbers next to their own fans and will instead be spread around the stadium, thus avoiding an enlarged away section.
