Supporter Update - Safety rail installation

View of London Stadium from the Upper Tier


West Ham United can confirm to our supporters that, following an open tender process, Arena Group has been appointed to install safety rails for around 3,000 spectators at the top Sir Trevor Brooking Stand Upper Tier.

These rails are to ensure a safe matchday experience for both home and away supporters.

West Ham United, together with London Stadium, is constantly looking at ways to improve the overall matchday experience for supporters and this is a further step towards achieving this.

The Club is already in the process of directly contacting those Season Ticket Holders whose seats will include safety rails in the future, although the rails are unlikely to be installed until 2021.

While the new safety rails have been designed so as not to impact the enjoyment of supporters in these seats, the Ticket Office is contacting the supporters currently in these seats directly with full details and to answer any questions, as well as advise all of the options available.

The two recently-installed new stands in the Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby Moore Lower Tiers have already been fully designed with any possible future developments with regards to safe standing already in mind so as to be compatible for future installation, to allow them to be adapted should there be any changes to Premier League guidelines on safe standing.
