Half-price train travel for long-distance Hammers
It's good news that West Ham fans can now get half price train tickets from Abellio Greater Anglia (the train company which sounds like our latest flying winger). This means fans from Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire can all get half-price travel if they apply by August 31. You can either get a season ticket for all the home games or a flexi-ticket which covers ten matches. Fans in Germany's Bundesliga have long had cheaper public transport with a match ticket and it's a progressive sign that West Ham have teamed up with Abellio to make it possible here.
