West Ham United will move into the Olympic Stadium next season.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has taken to social networking site Twitter to claim that the year 2016 is the most important in the club’s history.

The 2015-16 season is West Ham’s final at the Boleyn Ground in London, as they will move to the Olympic Stadium at the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

The Boleyn Ground has been the Hammers’ home since 1904 and is one of the most historic stadiums in England.

The Olympic Stadium, though, is much bigger and will allow more West Ham fans to watch the team in action in person.

The Hammers are doing well in the Premier League at the moment and appear set for a mid-table finish at least.

Slaven Bilic’s side could even up in the top six or higher, and that is certainly going to be a great way to bid farewell to the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham co-chairman Gold has claimed on Twitter that the year 2016 is the most important in the London’s club history, with former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar and the fans responding to him on the social networking site.
