Atmosphere is not a London Stadium problem

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.

  1. Never has been, I went to the rugby world cup before to watch a match was sitting in a seat not far from where my st is located in J block and the noise was incredible inside, likewise when we played Chelsea in the cup in the first season and several games in between. It’s always the fans that make the atmosphere but the players have to give us something in return or when we are quiet know they need to do something to lift us as we try on other occaisions to lift them, hopefully we have turned a corner COYI !!!
