West Ham announced today that they were extending the capacity of the Olympic Stadium to 60,000, as season ticket sales have been going so well.
The Hammers are set to move into their new home next campaign, and the demand to watch them play has never been greater.
West Ham have created great excitement about their future, and they have ambitions plans to start competing with the biggest clubs in England.
West Ham’s owners have made no secret of their desire to make the club a regular contender for the Champions League, and the move to the Olympic Stadium should give them a platform to compete.
Indeed, Karen Brady has stated that West Ham now intend to increase the stadium’s capacity to 66,000 in the near future.
aren't they just! in fact we are now looking to increase it further to 66,000.... https://t.co/i0IfZEMtPu— Lady Brady (@karren_brady) March 24, 2016
West Ham could move to their new stadium with European football on offer, too, as the London side are currently stationed in fifth place in the Premier League table, after a fantastic campaign to date.
