The Olympic Stadium is taking shape, with just around a year to go until West Ham move there.

West Ham are edging ever closer to their big move to the Olympic Stadium, and vice-chairwoman Karren Brady took to Twitter to show fans the progress at the stadium.

West Ham's 112-year stay at Upton Park is coming to an end next summer, as they move to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford ahead of the 2016/17 season.

The stadium was of course the main venue for the 2012 London Olympics, and after a lengthy ownership wrangle, West Ham did finally manage to secure it as their future home.

That means that next season will be their last at Upton Park, in what is bound to be an emotional goodbye for Hammers fans after many, many years there.

Yet, the move to the Olympic Stadium represents the growth and development of the club, and the move may be seen as the next logical step for West Ham to take in their pursuit of European football.

As the moving date draws ever closer, vice-chairwoman Brady took to Twitter to share the development of the stadium, with new floodlights being installed around the ground.

Claret and blue seats are expected to be installed instead of the black and white ones that are currently inside the Olympic Stadium, but the progress should be exciting for West Ham fans.
