West Ham fans could benefit from Tracey Crouch’s fan-led review into football governance, according to a new report.

Claret and Hugh claim that one suggestion is to offer fans greater protection through a “Golden Share”. This will be used as a chance for supporters to veto certain plans from clubs.

They then list examples such as changing the name of the stadium or the badge, all things that fans currently have no control over.

They also claim that this is the reason West Ham United Supporters’ Association has changed to the West Ham United Supporters’ Trust because trusts are the only bodies that can hold a Golden Share.

Potentially great news for the Irons.

This could work out to be fantastic news for Hammers supporters up and down the country.

Of course, the government has to actually vote on these ideas before they can be introduced, but there should be no reason why fans shouldn’t have more control over their club.

Certainly, this is a good incentive for Hammers supporters to sign up for the trust as well and hopefully, these measures will be introduced.

If they are, then Irons fans should be able to decide the name of the London Stadium and prevent any badge changes.

They could possibly even vote to get the old badge back, which would probably prove to be a very popular decision.

So, there are a lot of reasons why this could prove to be an excellent move if it were to be introduced.

Far too long, fans have had barely any say in what their club does, but that would change if this rule were introduced.
