Karren Brady shares Olympic Stadium update on Twitter

Upton Park

West Ham will leave Upton Park after a 112-year stay this summer.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed via Twitter that the interior of the Olympic Stadium is beginning to take shape as their time at the Boleyn Ground counts down.

The Hammers have just five home games left at the home which they have occupied for a whopping 112 years as their move to Stratford beckons.

By virtue of their lengthy stay at Upton Park, supporters could be forgiven for feeling slightly apprehensive about the drastic change in scenery.

But if Brady's picture on Twitter is anything to go by, fans need not be concerned after she shared an image illustrating how many claret seats have been installed in the 60,000-seater arena, which was increased from 54,000 just last month.

Things also appear to be taking shape on the pitch as the Irons remain in contention for Champions League qualification, as well as staying in the hunt for a first FA Cup title since 1980.

Slaven Bilic's boys host Manchester United in a quarter-final replay in East London this month, while they also sit four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race for Europe's elite competition.

How fans would love to see some continental heavyweights turning up at the Olympic Stadium next season for Champions League outings.
