West Ham calls for ‘urgent clarification’ from UEFA after supporters ban away from Rapid Vienna shock

News of the sanction comes just ten days before the game, with the Hammers having already exhausted their away allowance and although the club have confirmed that supporters will receive a refund if the ban is upheld, many will have booked the trip and accommodation for the trip.

A West Ham statement said: “The club are urgently requesting clarification from UEFA, especially given the extremely short notice of the sanction, which will impact our supporters who have already bought tickets and taken Arrangements to travel to Austria for our game at Rapid Vienna in just over a week.

“We are surprised to receive these sanctions and disappointed for the fans who have behaved impeccably and have supported the team throughout and who will now not be able to make it to the next away game of the Europa League.

“The Club have asked UEFA for the full written reasons for these sanctions and asked them to expedite our request as further delay could again affect fans.

“The Club fully appreciate that the supporters have booked round trip travel and accommodation in Austria and underline this in our dialogue with UEFA. We will notify supporters as soon as we can with further information.

“Finally, we would like to assure fans who have already purchased one of the 1,700 tickets that have used up our allocation for this match that they will be automatically reimbursed by the Club if UEFA decides on the sanctions and that they concern the next week’s game in Austria. “
