A lot of West Ham fans hate the fact they had to move from Upton Park to the London Stadium and it’s hard to blame them. Since the club made that move to their new ground they’ve won just 19 out of their 51 home Premier League ties and find themselves needing binoculars to watch any football once they’re in the ground.
The Club is currently working with London Stadium to explore some changes which would bring fans closer to the action.https://t.co/X4WNDYhJX6

That’s why this news will be music to the ears of the Hammers, as on the West Ham website they’ve claimed that the Hammers are looking into ways for the fans to brought in closer to the action. The main criticism of the ground is that the fans are too far away and given the fact that there’s an athletics track around the football pitch, it really is understandable.
If any changes can be made then the Irons will be absolutely ecstatic. The fact that fans are left squinting to see the numbers and names on the back of their player’s shirts when watching their side play live just isn’t good enough. These problems never came up at Upton Park, so for the club to be acting looking to try and improve the fan experience at their home of two and a half seasons has gone down very well.

Karren Brady said this wasn’t possible a few years ago. Definitely earned that £1m bonus for getting us in there
