New Stadium progress report

West Ham United’s new Stadium is looking more and more like the Hammers’ home with every passing day. 

Following the installation of claret seats, the Hammers’ world-class playing surface is now beginning to take shape in readiness for the big 2016/17 kick-off in August.  

The pitch comprises of both artificial fibres – Desso Grassmaster –and natural grass, with the former already being sewn into what is to become a pristine new Premier League surface. 

The turf, however, will only be in its final football-ready state after the completion of this summer’s athletics and musical events at the former Olympic Stadium.  

As the Club’s moving-in date draws ever closer, supporters can look forward to more regular updates like this on in the coming weeks and months.
