London Stadium improvements Image: West Ham United

The Premier League team West Ham United F.C. (UK) has informed supporters of a range of hugely exciting developments and improvements to its digs – the London Stadium – ahead of the 2022-2023 seasons, all of which align with its continued commitment to enhancing their matchday experience.

‘West Ham United’ stated that these advancements come at a time of great excitement and anticipation for West Ham United and its Claret and Blue Army, with David Moyes’ (Manager of West Ham United) team enjoying another successful Premier League campaign and competing in the latter stages of European competition.

The West Ham United Football Club is an English professional football club based in Stratford, East London that competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football. The club plays at the London Stadium, having moved from their former home, the Boleyn Ground, in 2016.

The 80,000-capacity London Stadium is a multipurpose outdoor stadium at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the Stratford district of London (UK). It is located in the Lower Lea Valley, six miles East of Central London.

The ‘West Ham United’ further stated that alongside success on the pitch, the club’s overriding priority is to work with fans and listen to their feedback to ensure a continued improvement in the matchday experience at London Stadium – from its Season Ticket Holders, Club London Members and match-attending fans, to those following from afar and across its digital channels.
 

The club can confirm that:

  • London Stadium’s capacity is set to increase to 62,500 seats.*;
  • The West Stand Lower Tier will be reconfigured to further develop a more traditional football stadium layout, bringing the upper and lower tiers closer together and more fans nearer to the action;
  • Affordable family football remains at the heart of everything the club does, and the club has ensured that its hugely popular £99 junior Season Ticket will continue in 2022-2023;
  • A new entry level adult Season Ticket is being introduced for £299 – the cheapest adult Season Ticket in London in the Premier League;
  • The introduction of a new Under-18s Season Ticket band will replace the existing Under- 16s ticket, meaning that young supporters can benefit from lower-priced Season Tickets for longer, as part of the club’s commitment to affordable top-flight football for young people and families;
  • The club is introducing a new ‘1966 West’ band, replicating the hugely popular 1966 seats in the Billy Bonds Stand;
  • After two seasons of price freezes across the board, there will be a small uplift on some of the club’s Season Ticket prices for 2022-2023, with a cost per game increase from just 79p in the lowest General Admissions band to just over £5 in the highest General Admissions band;
  • The club’s ongoing commitment to deliver enhancements and improvements in Club London will see an improved matchday experience for its loyal and valued members, with a small price increase where applicable; and
  • Supporters will also be able to apply to renew their Season Ticket in monthly instalments using our simple payment plan, delivered with its partner V12 Season Ticket Finance.

Stated West Ham United Vice-Chairman Baroness Brady, “We are always listening to our supporters and working hard to improve their experience at London Stadium, in line with the fantastic feedback we’ve received from them. The expected increase in capacity will see London Stadium become one of the highest-attended grounds in the capital and indeed the country, giving an even greater number of our supporters the opportunity to watch our exciting team in action.”

Added Brady, “We have had some fantastic moments at London Stadium this season, including memorable Premier League wins against Tottenham Hotspur F.C., Liverpool F.C. and Chelsea F.C. and, of course, the unforgettable night and atmosphere against the LaLiga club Sevilla FC (Spain) in the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Europa League, and we thank supporters for their continued fantastic backing. This is another great sign of progression during a hugely positive time for the club.”

Added Manager David Moyes, “Everyone here is doing everything we can to grow and develop this 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 atmosphere our supporters have created this season has been right up there in every game. Having more fans in the ground 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 the London Stadium.”

Supporters who are not yet on the Priority List may still be able to get a Season Ticket for 2022-2023 thanks to the increased capacity, uplift in the number of available Season Tickets and the opportunity afforded to those on the Priority List during the pandemic to confirm their preferences. However, with demand at an all-time high, the club encourages any supporters wanting to secure a Season Ticket to sign up to the Priority List now, before the additional seats are snapped up by other members of the Claret & Blue Army.
