West Ham have today announced that the club have successfully applied to expand the London Stadium capacity to 62,500, making it the 3rd largest capacity in the Premier League.
In what will certainly be seen as a welcome addition to the recent momentum surrounding the club, the board and manager David Moyes were delighted in sharing the news that once the capacity is extended, our home attendance records will once again be beaten as we continue our drive to reach the 67,000 milestone promised when we moved from Upton Park.
Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said “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. 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.
“This is another great sign of progression during a hugely-positive time for the Club.”
David Moyes also stated “Everyone here is doing everything we can to grow and develop this football club, on and off the pitch, for the benefit of our supporters, and we all feel that things are moving in the right direction.
“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. 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.”
