Final season they paid out £200,000 to E20 Stadium Ltd with a £100,000 bonus for ending sixth  within the prime flight and one other £100,000 for qualifying for the Europa League group levels.

Ought to they handle to handle the identical feat once more and outperform Manchester United within the subsequent two video games then £200,000 can be due however a seventh-place would see the stadium house owners dealing with a bonus crash.

If West Ham had gained the Europa League they might only have been on the hook for an additional £100,000 in bonuses in line with the concessionaire settlement.

Because the UEFA Europa Convention League didn’t exist on the time of signing the stadium contract in 2013 no bonus is due for qualifying for the Convention league subsequent season.
