The lack of atmosphere is not a London Stadium problem. Critics have often blamed the former Olympic Stadium saying it hasn’t been designed for football, blaming the running track or distance between the stands and the football pitch for a lack of atmosphere at many West Ham games.
Supporters of Red Star Belgrade proved that those claims are just not true and that it is people create atmosphere regardless of the setting or building around them. The Serbian team recently back in the Champions league showed passion and made the Rajko Mitić Stadium complete with running track and large distances between the stands and pitch come alive with passion.
