An astonishing 52,000 season ticket holders - a new West Ham record and a figure that puts them second only to Manchester United - confirms the club's fans support the move.
But there is still some trepidation over whether that famous Upton Park atmosphere can be rekindled at their new home.

Can it compare to Upton Park?
Some fans feel the fact the pitch is slightly further away from the fans is not conducive to creating a rousing and intimidating atmosphere.
Others think having an extra 25,000 Hammers belting out Bubbles can't fail to make the atmosphere even better.

Royal seal of approval
"The way this club is developing is very encouraging," Prince Albert told whufc.com on a recent visit to the club.
“I am sure the the big move will help take them onto another level. I am sure it will have an incredible impact on the players.
“The West Ham fans will create a very special atmosphere there and I wish them a lot of successful seasons to come.”

Sky is the limit for Hammers
But with the likes of Norwegian midfield enforcer Havard Nordveit and Algerian winger Sofiane Feghouli already signed up and the promise of more exciting signings to come there is no reason why the Hammers can't kick on... esepcially with 60,000 fans screaming them on every other week.
