London: West Ham United have issued lifetime bans on two supporters for invading the pitch at the London Stadium during their 3-1 League Cup defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.
“West Ham can confirm that following two incidents of pitch encroachment during our game against Tottenham, two individuals have been arrested and charged by the police,” the Premier League club said in a statement on their website.
“Encroaching the pitch is a criminal offence that will not be tolerated by the club. In keeping with the club’s zero tolerance policy, the two individuals will be banned for life from London Stadium with immediate effect.”
In March, the club banned five people for invading the London Stadium pitch during a 3-0 league defeat by Burnley.
