How the claret and blue seats will be funded


Claret and Hugh understands that the money from selling  Champions Place personalised engraved granite stones will be used to replace the black seats at the Olympic Stadium.

West Ham will be footing the multi-million pound bill to swap out black seats at the Olympic Stadium themselves. The new Claret and Blue seats will make a a huge crossed hammers symbol and spell out the words ‘West Ham’ as well replicate the existing Olympic shard pattern in the upper tiers. The final cost of replacing these black seats is thought to be as high as £3 million.

The Hammers are offering engraved stones at £60, £99 and £499 for Hammers fans as gifts and they are likely to popular this Christmas for the West Ham fan who has everything.

Last week, West Ham confirmed they have decided that each message on the Commemorative Bricks at the Boleyn Ground will be inscribed on a brand new Champions Place Stone at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.The Club will take on all the costs of this process.
