Giant TV screens to replace OS digital wrap

stadiumwrap726West Ham have announced that a planning application has been submitted by E20 LLP for a replacement wrap solution for the former Olympic Stadium after the previous design was abandoned.

The Club say it has worked with its stadium partners tirelessly to develop an optimum solution that would see the largest digital screens in Europe, measuring a massive 83m by 12m, installed on the outside of the Stadium.

If approved,  Hammers fans will be able to enjoy clips of their heroes past and present in High Definition  as they make their approach to the world-famous venue they will call home from August. And crucial to that end, the screens would be designed to respond to different brightness settings, meaning definition remains at an optimum level for day or night games in any weather condition.

The new plans – which replace the previously submitted application – also include Olympic legacy-inspired Claret and Blue shards and the Club’s crest and colours, in addition to branding and advertising to support the Club’s  commitment to ensuring the Stadium looks and feels like the unmistakable home of West Ham. Now that the above proposal has been submitted for consideration, West Ham United and its Stadium partners will be working hard with the planning authority to reach an agreeable outcome. A response is expected within the next eight weeks, to allow installation to take place between May and July.

  1. Couldn’t care less what the outside looks like,it’s what’s on the pitch I care about.Paint it pink with my little ponies all over it as far as I’m concerned as long as we are winning,lol 🙂

  2. Same as P45,not too fussed if I’m honest what bells & whistles are on the outside of the stadium.

  3. no doubt this is the ‘optimum’ priced solution as well… not quite what was originally proposed, but they had to do something. stadium looks really bare with no wrap round it at all

  4. Giant TV screens aren’t a wrap……..something has gone a miss
