Claret and Blue Showers at Olympic Stadium

Olympic Stadium showers are being tiled in Claret & blue in preparation for West Ham moving into their new home

Claret and Blue Showers at Olympic Stadium

Well it looks like the showers will be Claret and Blue at the new look Olympic Stadium. This photo posted by Stadium construction worker Gary Jones on Instagram this week appears to show West Ham themed showers in the rebuild Olympic Stadium.

Whilst the floor remains under construction the claret & blue theme looks almost complete with the tiles recently drilled out to fit the showers.

Clearly the re-theme of this already iconic venue in Stratford East London continues at a very fast pace and should make the Hammers feel right at home.

The stadium which has been made famous by Usain Bolt is set to undergo a series of projects to make it more like Upton Park. The seating will have a West Ham theme and it won’t just be the showers which receive the Claret & Blue treatment.

There will be Boleyn themed bars and corporate lounges which pay homage to the history of West Ham United and The Thames Ironworks. It is also understood that the concourse inside the stadium itself will be festooned in the Hammers livery.

The Olympic Park is set to receive a massive regeneration project as work continues outside the stadium.

There are also plans to rename many of the routes and bridges which approach the venue, with many of West Ham’s greatest players being honoured.

It’s highly likely that Hammers legends such as Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds, Sir Geoff Hurst, Trevor Brooking, John Lyall and Ron Greenwood could be immortalised in a bit to make the surrounds more homely.

Quite how familiar West Ham’s new home will be remains to be seen, however it is clear from the pictures being leaked that there will be plenty of Claret & Blue on show.

  4. The builder looks like he could be fit enough to make the Euro games how much to sign him
    probably out of our price, he is possibly a Polish international,

  5. The shower guy might be worth a shout bubs he’s powerful,got a good head on him,likes to spray it around and dribbles a lot but does have a tendency to be hot and cold lol

  6. When did you share a shower with him Quichdraw
    I was more interested in his football ability your still using hippo,s method of buying,
    If it dribbles a lot could it be Wetpants.com head quarters,
    Don’t like the stripes reminds me of some of our crap second strips,
    Where’s the big bath,when we win the cup again you have to celebrate with everyone in a big bath

  7. Haha sharing a shower is good for the environment. He’s not a hippo signing his agent isn’t Curtis.
    Old Wetpants could do with that tiling all over it’d help the spillage.
    Dunno about the old kits it looks like it’s missing some urinals.
    So you’re a big shared bath man bubs,good for you lol

  8. I love this story about the showers of the OS… Once, after a friendly football game

  9. I thought those fittings in the wall had rotating brushes in them to clean your meat & two veg!! Or has no one invented them yet!!

  10. You need to get to dragons den danger lol

  11. When you are from a big family you get to share baths a lot QuickD
    But this has got to be the best post of the day
    We need to have a look at the loos tomorrow Hugh,
    That will start some comments QuichD and no I am not dirty old man that hangs around
    Public bogs,

    • Haha bubs you’re spot on I like the mix on here a bit of serious opinion and having a laugh,too much analysing from us amateurs and we turn into Wetpants. We can have articles about the showers,the bogs or DGs beard as long as we don’t take ourselves too seriously it doesn’t matter. I’d never think you’d be a dirty old man hanging around public bogs,I’d say they’d be too hot and smelly in sunny Spain lol
