London Stadium (capacity 60,000)
West Ham moved into their new home of the London Stadium for the 2016/17 season, having been at the Boleyn Ground for the previous 112 years. The London Stadium is a state of the art development with a capacity for football of 60,000. It was previously used as the focal point of the London Olympics in 2012.
The Stadium itself is the newest addition to the Premier League and as you can imagine is extremely modern. It is bowl shaped, with one of the largest video screens in the league, and the translucent roof is the largest of its kind in the world. Time will tell whether this former track and field stadium will prove popular amongst visiting football fans.
Away fans visiting the London Stadium are based on one side of the South Stand, nearest the West Stand, with a typical allocation of around 2,800.
With this stadium being new on the scene in the Premier League, we’ll have to watch this space regarding parking, but as soon as it becomes clear then we’ll make sure we let you know. There is one option at the Westfield Shopping Centre, which is detailed below.
|Car Park||Sat Nav||Cost||Distance to Ground||Description|
|Westfield Shopping Centre||E20 1EJ||£9.50||1.4km||Whilst parking options around the Olympic Stadium isn’t clear yet, the Westfield Shopping Centre will prove a popular choice for away fans given how close it is to the stadium.|
West Ham’s new ‘London Stadium’ is served by three main railway stations, all of which are around a 15 minute walk away. Stratford Station is considered to be the main station as it has over ground connections to London Liverpool Street and Clapham Junction, as well as an Underground station on both the Jubilee and Central lines. It is also on the Docklands Light Railway. Away fans that get off at Stratford Station will be able to visit the Westfield Shopping Centre, where you’ll find a number of places serving alcohol.
There is also Stratford International Railway Station, which is on the other side of the Westfield Shopping Centre, and is served by London St Pancras, which is just over a 5 minute journey. This is another station which is on the Docklands Light Railway.
Finally, there is Hackney Wick Railway Station which is situated on the opposite side of the stadium to the two Stratford Stations. Hackney Wick is served by London Waterloo and Stratford. Stops at Highbury and Islington can connect fans to the Victoria Line on the Underground, for those travelling to London Euston.
