Many West Ham United supporters have been reacting to the news that away fans will be allowed at UEFA club competitions this season.
The Hammers qualified for the Europa League group stages for the first time in their history last season after a brilliant campaign in the Premier League saw them finish sixth.
David Moyes’ side were drawn in Group H alongside Genk, Rapid Wien and Dinamo Zagreb, with the first fixture taking place after this weekend’s trip to Southampton – they will travel to Croatia next Thursday, with Sky Sports confirming fans will be allowed to travel.
The news allows away fans to attend European club competition matches in the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League – all three starting next week.
