As many as 45,000 West Ham supporters travelled to the Czech Republic to be in the country while the Hammers were crowned champions.

West Ham were only allocated just under 6,000 tickets for the final in the 19,000 Eden Park stadium, but police estimates say as many as 13,000 West Ham fans attended the final after supporters managed to get hold of ballot tickets. West Ham fans outnumbered the Italian fans two to open in the stadium.

Over 9,000 West Ham, supporters attended the Prague fan park, with another 2,000 at the Ironworks event.  Many thousands more stayed in the main square to watch the game.

Despite being given short notice between 70,000 and 100,000 West Ham Supporters witnessed the victory parade in two open-top buses, which started in Green Street and finished at the old town hall in Stratford. The parade which was scheduled to take an hour spent two hours edging past thousands of fans who lined the route in East London.
