General Information

The Stadium was originally built for the 2012 Olympics held in London and was used as the main stadium for track and field events and the ceremonies of the games. Since the games, the stadium has become multipurpose but is mainly home of West Ham United Football Club after a battle between a few football clubs. The stadium is still used for Athletics events in the summer and has also held Rugby events.  To suit its main tenants the stadium was redeveloped after the 2012 games to be suitable for Football, this meant that the roof had to be extended and retractable seating was added to the stadium so the capacity could be increased for football as the seats extend over the Athletics track, bringing the spectators closer to the action.

Getting there

The Stadium is accessible from the London Tube system with the nearest stations being ‘Stratford’ and ‘Stratford International’. The Stadium is also accessible by bus, train and also bike with docking stations around the Olympic park to leave bicycles.

Opening Times and Admission

You can visit the stadium on one of the West Ham match days or other sporting events held at the stadium. Tours are also available through the London Stadium website.

Visited for a football match

Rated:

Visited for a football match and didn't think the stadium was fit for that purpose, most of the seating seemed to be closer to the next borough than the pitch. Also thought it had lost a lot of that Olympic memory and feel. Food and drink prices were at the high end of London prices but to be expected at UK sporting events.

Summer Athletics

Rated:

Visited during the summer, the area around the stadium has improved since my last visit. The stadium is as modern as expected. The underground is a short walk away from the stadium. The only gripe i had was the price of food and drink at the stadium.
