Turnstiles to London Stadium will open two hours before kick-off for every West Ham United home game this season, with supporters set to get the chance to explore the Hammers’ magnificent new home for the first time this Thursday against NK Domzale.
 
The Slovenian side are the Irons’ first visitors to London Stadium, ahead of the world-class facility’s official launch on Sunday, where West Ham play host to Italian giants Juventus.
 
Supporters are encouraged to make their way to London Stadium in plenty of time to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings and begin to formulate their new matchday routines.
 
There is a wealth of reasons to make your way to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park early, starting with a visit to the Irons’ exceptional new Stadium Store.
 
The Hammers’ new retail space, which is more than two-and-a-half times the size of its Boleyn Ground equivalent, will be open for business every game to make sure you look and feel the part for match.
 
Home to three leaves of the iconic John Lyall Gates, which sit pride of place at the heart of the two-floor megastore, the shop has 44 till points and 12 printing stations to ensure no one is left disappointed.
 
The Stadium Store is also home to the West Ham United Coffee Co., a bespoke café and casual dining area open every day of the week.
 
With 36 mouthwatering catering outlets inside the concourse and plenty of bars for thirsty supporters, there is every reason to enter the Stadium early to sample what London Stadium has to offer. ‘Hammers Happy Hour’ even means you can get great deals on food and drink in the first hour after turnstiles open!*
 
Pies, hot-dogs, burgers, confectionery, chicken and vegetable skewers, traditional English sausages, West Ham themed ales, nachos and street food can all be found just a few seconds from your seat.
 
Europe’s largest stadium video screens and and concourse TVs will keep even the most boisterous of young supporters entertained, whilst the imposing West Ham legend shirts adoring the concourses are a sight to behold.
 
Most importantly, arriving early will allow supporters the opportunity to find their seat and take in their new surroundings at one of the globe’s finest sporting arenas.
