West Ham will soon announce details of the opening ceremony for the London Stadium East Stand to be renamed the Billy Bonds stand on Saturday before kick-off against Newcastle United.
Details of the actual ceremony are scarce at the moment but Bonzo and his family will be guest of honour with a number of former players who played alongside him also invited to take part.
Coloured bags will be laid out on seats of the East Stand to create a human mosaic to spell out Billy Bonds.
The ceremony is thought to start around 5.15pm with supporters asked to be in their seats for 5 pm.
Bonds on the announcement of the stand early in February told WHUFC.com “To think that I am only the third West Ham player to receive this honour after Bobby Moore and Trevor Brooking – you can’t get better than that,”
Bonds enjoyed a remarkable 21-year playing career with the club between 1967-1988 making 799 appearances.
He then went on to manage the club between 1990-1994, twice winning promotion to the top division.
