West Ham fans can see Cup tie for tenner

West Ham United fans can see tomorrow's Carling Cup tie with Oxford United for just ten quid.

With prices at just £5 for kids and £10 for adults - wherever you sit in the ground - a full house is expected by the time kick-off comes around at 7.45pm on Tuesday. The Hammers were able to offer the price reduction with cooperation from Oxford.

West Ham United chairman David Sullivan secured the cut-price rate in discussions with the League Two newcomers. He was determined to make the match as affordable for as many fans as possible.

He told whufc.com: "This will be the cheapest match at Upton Park for over a decade.

"We had to persuade Oxford to agree to this radical pricing but we are taking the cup competitions seriously and will do everything we can to be successful. I am sure the manager will put out a strong team and we will not be treating the match as a formality. We will be professional and it promises to be an exciting night under the lights."
