I was charged £435 for pint of beer while watching West Ham, says footy fan



A FOOTIE fan was charged £435.60 for one pint at his club’s bar.

West Ham supporter Gary Ollard, 37, fancied a beer before Saturday’s match.

But instead of being billed £6.60 for a solitary Amstel, an IT glitch charged him for 66.

The delay in getting a refund meant the Hammers fan, of Milton Keynes, Bucks, missed the first half of his side’s 2-0 win against Wolves at the London Stadium.

Gary, who often goes to games with girlfriend Zoe Johnston, wrote to the club saying: “I’ve never been more frustrated.


“This error has forced me to go into my overdraft and incur late payment charges.”

West Ham said it was out of their control as kiosks are run by third party operator Delaware North, which has been contacted for comment.

Despite his money worries, Gary watched the Hammers beat Wolves 2-0 on Saturday – the club’s first win in the Premier League since August.
