Premier League: West Ham Stadium capacity to increase to 62,500

Premier League: West Ham

West Ham has been granted permission by the Premier League to increase the seating capacity of their stadium to 62,500. The additional 2,500 seats will help to meet the growing demand for tickets according to the club. The game against Tottenham in the Premier League seated a crowd of 59,924 with another full house expected when they take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup. The expansion is a step towards the ambition of the club to have the biggest stadium in London.

“The application to increase the matchday capacity will give an even greater number of our fans the opportunity to watch our exciting team in action in person.” West Ham United vice-chairman Baroness Brady said after they were granted permission by the Premier League. “Since the regular return of supporters this year, we have seen a terrific response with every Premier League fixture so far this season sold out, and we thank them for their continued fantastic backing including breaking attendance records as part of regular capacity crowds at London Stadium.”

“The supporters being back has been fantastic and the atmosphere they have created, with 60,000 in the stadium, has been right up there every game.” West Ham manager David Moyes said. “Having more fans in here cheering the team on will make it even better for us all and we are really looking forward to welcoming more of our young supporters and families to London Stadium.”
