Gold on OS opening plan

goldDavid Gold has revealed that the Olympic Stadium will be opened via a high profile pre-season game next year.

The Hammers are working on ideas and are in discussions with clubs as the big day approaches although no details have yet been disclosed.

Many fans have claimed they would also love to see X-Factor winner and major Hammers fan Louisa Johnson appear at the opening ceremony but that lies in the hands of Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment organisation who has the 17 year old under contract.

A well placed source inside the club claimed that whilst the teenager would “probably have done Upton Park for nothing before winning” she is now likely to cost bundles.

However, Karren Brady is a director of the Cowell company and may be able to pull a few strings in that direction!

Gold, meanwhile , answering a fan on Twitter said: “The plan is to play a big pre-season game at the new stadium dg”

And despite the massive season ticket sales he added: “I’m still hopeful that every one that wants a season ticket for next season will get one. dg.

  1. Don’t waste money on a karaoke singer.

  2. Hope we are talking about Alex Song’s mates coming over from Spain, that would be epic.

  3. Millwall ?

    The only way everyone who wants a ticket will get a ticket is if they fully open the stadium to its 66,000 capacity. This could be the biggest hint yet that its going to happen

  4. “Many fans have claimed they would also love to see X-Factor winner and major Hammers fan Louisa Johnson appear at the opening ceremony” Really Hugh? You are talking ****. If your a fan then good for you, this is a historic moment for the club and fans not really about your fav pop star mate.
