West Ham's season tickets will cost as little as £289 when they move to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

The Hammers will have the cheapest pricing strategy in the Barclays Premier League in a bid to fill the 54,000 capacity stadium when they make the switch for the 2016-17 season.

Co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan are using the boost of the enhanced television revenue, which coincides with their move away from Upton Park, to pass on savings to fans. The new TV deal starts in 2016 after Sky and BT agreed to pay more than £5billion for domestic rights and there will be another auction over the summer with overseas broadcasters.

According to a document that will be issued to West Ham fans today, every season-ticket band will be reduced when the club move. The lowest priced basic adult season ticket will cost £289, the price for under 16s will be cut to just £99, and a family of four will be able to watch all 19 home games in the top flight for £776.

Disabled season-ticket holders will also see a huge reduction, with prices dropping by up to £205. The news comes just one day after Sportsmail revealed massive price hikes at Manchester City. Supporters in City’s East Stand have been been told they will have to fork out £1,750 to watch their team, almost double the £885 they currently pay.

The Hammers will be under pressure to fill their new stadium after taking the huge decision to leave Upton Park, where they have played since 1904. Gold and Sullivan have taken a 99-year lease on the Olympic Stadium.

The club also have a decision to make over manager Sam Allardyce’s future — but insist they will not make a final call until after the end of the season.

Allardyce won promotion with West Ham two seasons ago and took them to a mid-table finish in their first year back in the Premier League. His contract expires at the end of the season and they have yet to open talks over a new deal.

Real Sociedad boss David Moyes, Besiktas manager Slaven Bilic, a former West Ham player, and Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp have been linked with the job. But on Tuesday vice-chairman Karren Brady hit out at suggestions that Klopp — who will leave Dortmund this summer — is set to replace Allardyce.

‘It is just nonsense,’ Brady told Sky Sports News. ‘Sam is the manager, we have talked to him about sitting down at the end of the season, which we will do. We have to see what he wants to do. That’s how these things work. We’ve done that since he joined and we’ve done that when his contract has run out before.’

BUT NEXT SEASON, WHO'S THE CHEAPEST?
