Following West Ham United’s announcement in February 2019 that, together with London Stadium, we were exploring some changes to improve the seating and experience of supporters in the Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby Moore Stands, the Club can confirm that, following consultation with the Official Supporters Board (OSB) to help inform the brief and an extensive process between the Club and E20, that Arena Events Group has been appointed to develop the new seating system.
Arena will deliver two new lower tier stands bringing fans closer to the pitch, many by more than four metres, with the stand being squared-off in line with a more traditional football stadium configuration behind the goals.
Following an initial presentation to the Club's Official Supporters Board in February 2019, the Club and E20 will now look to present the latest plans later this month for discussion and consultation and to explore the opportunities the new seating configuration presents to further enhance the matchday experience and incorporate yet further the famous Claret and Blue at the Stadium. It is important to the Club that supporters have the opportunity to provide feedback to all parties before design work continues.
Following a period of design development, E20 and West Ham United will review the stands with the aim of installing the seats this summer.
In line with the Board’s commitment, the Club is constantly working hard to continue to enhance the matchday experience at every level.
