One supporter is prohibited from entering London Stadium.
On Friday, West Ham United issued an indefinite ban to the supporter involved in a verbal altercation with Jake Livermore. The fan was found to have violated a number of London Stadium’s ground regulations and will be unable to attend the Hammers’ home and away matches.
The incident occurred in the second half of West Ham’s 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League. The Baggies published a statement in the game’s aftermath, clarifying that Livermore was subjected to general abuse and confronted a spectator who made a comment about the death of his infant son.
“West Ham United have issued an indefinite ban to the supporter involved in a verbal altercation with West Bromwich Albion’s Jake Livermore,” the statement reads.
“After a full investigation conducted by the club, which included statements from supporters in close proximity of the incident and evidence from Jake Livermore and West Bromwich Albion officials, the individual was found to have violated a number of London Stadium ground regulations and will be unable to attend home or away matches with immediate effect.”
According to the Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg, there will be no action taken by the Football Association over the altercation.
