David Sullivan to bring family and close friend to West Ham games
In his latest move to seemingly alienate himself and annoy the West Ham faithful even further, West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has found a way to be able to bring his family to West Ham games during Covid-19 times.
During the pandemic, fans are of course still yet to be allowed back into stadiums, barring a brief period at the back end of 2020 in certain areas.
Sullivan, though, has now made it possible for him to be able to bring several family members to games both home and away.
As per The Times, The Premier League’s Covid-19 protocols allow up to ten directors to attend games.
So, Sullivan this week appointed his son, David, partner, Emma Benton-Hughes, son-in-law, Daniel Cunningham, and close friend, Charles Cross to the board – meaning they are all now able to attend games with him.
The Times add they have been told that the correct process has been followed. But regardless, with so many suffering in the world and most fans having not stepped in a stadium since March, is this not just Sullivan again showing he is simply out of touch with football fans.
West Ham vs Burnley
The first match Sullivan and his family will seemingly be attending is against Burnley on Saturday.
The Hammers head into the tie 10th in the Premier League, having lost just one of their last five.
As for Burnley, they are currently 16th in the league and still somewhat in the relegation battle after losing one of their games in hand vs Manchester United on Tuesday.
