West Ham United have been enjoying their first training session at their new home, taking to the Olympic Stadium pitch ahead of what is a crucial match in the Europa League on Thursday night, and showing off the ground via their official Twitter account.

The stadium is certainly looking a much more appealing football venue than before the summer, with additional seating present at the sides of the pitch and green flooring covering up much of the athletics track.

What has never been in doubt is the quality of the stadium itself, and it is now sporting the colours and badge of its tenants across its seating, with West Ham certainly boasting one of the finest looking grounds in the country.

The Hammers are preparing to play their first match at their new home this Thursday, when they seek to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Slovenian side NK Domzale.

Slaven Bilic's side lost away in their first match of the new season, but will be hoping that the fan support inside the impressive Olympic Stadium can help them secure the victory needed to continue their European adventure into the season proper.
