New Stadium progress report
- London Stadium in final stages of transformation into West Ham United's new home
- Retractable seating being repositioned in Lower tiers of the North, South and West Stands
- Hammers host NK Domzale in UEFA Europa League third qualifying round on Thursday 4 August
The Hammers are to play host to Slovenian outfit NK Domzale in the return leg of their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round tie on Thursday 4 August, before Juventus visit in the Betway Cup three days later.
In readiness for a maiden European fixture at the iconic arena, the repositioning of the retractable seating on three sides of the Stadium began on Sunday.
With the ‘Kop’-style East Stand, bearing ‘West Ham’ and the crossed hammers, already in its final, football-ready mode, the lower tiers of the North, South and West Stands are now to undergo a similar process in the coming days.
Elsewhere, West Ham branding is to go up a notch over the next ten days as well. In addition to the imposing 45-metre wide marquee signage, which arrived on site last Monday, the famous Claret and Blue will become more and more prominent, both inside and out, as the countdown to kick-off continues.
