Hammers vow to ban fans


West Ham will look to impose lifetime bans on the fans who invaded the pitch and threw missiles during Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Burnley at the London Stadium.

The game was interrupted by four separate pitch invasions before co-owner David Sullivan was hit by a coin in the directors' box as supporters staged a protest at the club's board. Sullivan and his co-owner David Gold were forced to leave the directors' box.

The club has until the end of the week to provide the Football Association an explanation on the unrest and the Hammers have confirmed they will issue lifetime bans to any fans identified as being involved.

"West Ham United are committed to taking decisive and positive action with the primary focus of ensuring London Stadium is a safe, comfortable and secure environment for supporters attending future matches," a statement from the club read.

"Following the incidents which marred the second half of the Premier League fixture with Burnley on Saturday 10 March, the Club is conducting a full and thorough investigation and has attended a series of emergency meetings with London Stadium stakeholders.

"The Club is working in close conjunction with the Metropolitan Police to identify those individuals, who entered the pitch during the second half, and with stadium operator LS185, using London Stadium's high-quality CCTV footage, to identify those who threw missiles, both of which are specific offences under the Football (Offences) Act 1991.

"Any individual found guilty will be banned from attending any West Ham United fixture, home and away, for life and the Club will request the courts serve a banning order to prevent these individuals attending any football matches in the future.

"West Ham United maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards any behaviour of this nature, with the safety of all supporters always the Club's number one priority."
