The current crisis could save London Stadium owners millions in running costs in a bizarre twist of fate.
London Stadium owners have previously claimed each West Ham match costs them £250,000 in operating costs to stage despite bringing in just £100,000 per game of rent from the Hammers.
Not staging the final five home of the season could potentially save the public taxpayer £750,000 but that would be dwarfed by not moving the seats this summer.
Major League Baseball has already been cancelled but if the Greenday music concert and Athletics are also cancelled this summer, the London Stadium owners can leave the stadium in football mode save a further £6m just from not moving the seats.
Even if the London Stadium makes £6.75m of additional savings this year it won’t put a massive dent in its £29m per year annual losses but the sad truth it that it is cheaper to have no supporters in it to save on running costs.
