Supporters club end up homeless

West Ham’s Official Supporters Club have ended up homeless this coming after they sent an announcement to all members at lunchtime.

“There will not be a Matchday Bar at Orbit Live this season! A joint statement from WHUSC Committee & Orbit Live Limited

Unfortunately, despite the best intentions and endeavours of both the Supporters’ Club Committee and Orbit Live Limited, it has not been possible to agree terms that would allow the Supporters’ Club continued exclusive use of Orbit Live’s venue for the 2023/24 Premier League season. 

The Supporters’ Club would like to thank Orbit Live Limited for their efforts in making the venue available to members last season and the Committee is now looking to secure an alternative venue and will update members in due course.

The Committee is subject to a non-disclosure agreement with Orbit Live Ltd so is unable to give members any more information at this time so please do not email asking for further details as we are unable to reply to you. As a result, all members at 31st May 2023 will have their membership put on hold until such time as we can secure a new venue.  Any members who managed to renew at the end of May will be refunded their membership in full as soon as possible.  Once a new venue is known, all members will have the chance to renew if they want to do so once the venue and membership renewal fee is published. We will also be emailing those on the membership waiting list as soon as possible to let them know the news as well but please pass on this information to any of your friends and family that have asked to be on the waiting list.

The Committee is very sorry to disappoint members so close to the start of the season but we believe we have made the correct decision in the best interests of the Supporters’ Club. WHUSC Committee #RefusingToFadeAndDie

6foot2 says: “It is disappointing that the supporters club are now homeless despite so many fighting for their continued existence after the move to Stratford; many of us saw this coming, so it is no surprise in some ways; what is a surprise is the committee signed a non-disclosure agreement which forbids them to talk about it. The new committee, which halted the disbanding of the old social club after the Stratford move, campaigned for transparency and yet now tells members not to contact them to ask for any more details. The renewed air of secrecy around this brings back memories of the previous leadership of the seventy-year-old supporters club. Let’s hope they live up to their campaign slogan and don’t just quietly fade and die.”
