Manager David Moyes and captain Declan Rice have paid tribute to West Ham United fans on the eve of the new season, with the Club set to kick-off the 2022/23 Premier League season in front of a record 62,500 capacity crowd at London Stadium on Sunday – the biggest home attendance in the Club’s 127-year history.
All 2022/23 Club London and General Admission Season Tickets have now sold out, as excitement builds for another hugely anticipated campaign at London Stadium.
Demand for a Season Ticket ahead of the new season has been exceptionally high this summer, with a record 55,000 Hammers fans securing their seat for the upcoming campaign – the highest number of Season Ticket holders of any Premier League club.
After yet another campaign to remember last term, with so many massive moments at London Stadium, the Club has made exciting changes to further enhance the matchday experience, with capacity increased to 62,500.
Moyes has thanked Hammers fans for their magnificent support, saying: “It’s fantastic that so many of our loyal Season Ticket Holders have renewed in record numbers again. Our fans never fail to amaze me, they give the team and the Club such magnificent support.
“We had so many brilliant memories last season – to see the fans enjoying themselves in the Premier League and the Europa League was something we will never forget.
“I’m so happy that they are going to have another European tour to look forward to in the upcoming campaign and I just want to say thank you on behalf of the team to all of our supporters.”
Captain Rice added: “We’re all really looking forward to the start of the season – and playing in front of 62,500 supporters at London Stadium.
“We enjoyed some massive moments last season and with the capacity increasing by 2,500, everyone is excited about the campaign ahead.”
With capacity increasing by 2,500 to take the overall total capacity to 62,500, an increased number of Season Tickets and wider range of Club London offerings were made available for 2022/23. After a record number of existing Season Ticket Holders renewed, the remaining few available have now been snapped up by those on the Priority List in record time.
The arrival of new signings Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd and Gianluca Scamacca has added further international quality to the playing squad this summer, with Flynn Downes – a boyhood West Ham fan – also joining the Hammers in the transfer window, as David Moyes’ team prepare for a second successive season of European football at London Stadium.

The significant increase in capacity at London Stadium is another positive step forward for the Club in ultimately reaching the stadium’s full capacity, which would see West Ham United’s home in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park become the biggest Premier League ground in London.
Further matchday stadium enhancements have been added for the benefit of West Ham United supporters this summer, with the installation of a new permanent catering and refreshment facility running the length of the Billy Bonds Stand.
A total of ten individual Heineken bars have been added, delivering food and drink along nearly 110 metres of the concourse, with 150 new draught taps included.
West Ham United look forward to welcoming all of our loyal Season Ticket Holders and matchday supporters back to London Stadium on Sunday.
