The Hammers are to invest millions in state-of-the-art seating at the Olympic Stadium.
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s unveiling of computer-generated images of what the Claret and Blue inspired seating designs will look like, Claret and Hugh has learned the club is to invest a significant seven-figure sum into replacing many of the current black seats with Claret and Blue coloured replacements.
An insider confirmed to ClaretandHugh: “West Ham are paying their own way when it comes down to club branding at the Stadium.”
Claret and blue trianglular sail designs were also unveiled as part of a proposed solution to cover the gaps between the lower and upper stands.
But we have been told by our insider. “Nothing is set in stone yet. We will continue to look an innovative ways to cover the gap between the stands and nothing has been ruled out. We remain open-minded if a better solution can be found.”
The club source also echoed what Karren Brady had said in her video about construction and cosmetic work continuing after the Rugby World Cup. He told those fans going to watch the Barbarians vs Samoa match tomorrow that they shouldn’t automatically jump to the conclusion that the stadium in ‘football mode’ in 2016 will look the same – because it won’t!
