West Ham United squared off against Slovenian side Domzale in the second leg of the third round Europa League qualifiers and the match was the first competitive fixture for the Hammers at the former Olympic Stadium.
Following the game, manager Slaven Bilic stated that the fans created a positive atmosphere inside the stadium and added that his side are ‘not afraid’ of their new home, despite the initial struggle early on in the game.
Bilic was quoted saying by the Daily Mirror, “You can’t compare it to Upton Park. It’s totally different but it’s a good atmosphere. I’m not afraid of the new stadium.
“It was difficult psychologically for us but for a stage like this we played really good, we were fit, aggressive and played good football.
“We could have scored more goals, but it was a very mature performance. We played badly in the first leg but a week later we are fresher and closer to the season.”
West Ham will welcome AFC Bournemouth in their first Premier League game at the London Stadium on August 21st and one can be sure that the fans will be looking to create a rapturous atmosphere on the day.
