West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold have been evacuated from the London Stadium after fan protests targeted the director’s box.
The pair left the stadium along with other members of the West Ham board during the game with Burnley after fans left their seats and began chanting abuse at the pair. West Ham went on to lose the game 3-0.

This comes after a march before the game calling on the current owners to sell the club, as West Ham slip towards the bottom half of the table and potential relegation.
Since buying the club in 2010, the pair’s ownership of the club has been called into question on multiple occasions. The move to leave and demolish Upton Park in favour of a move to Stratford and the London Stadium was a very unpopular one, and fans are discontented with West Ham’s current form.
