West Ham have confirmed that the relocatable seating on all four sides of London Stadium is now in place, which means the stadium will be operating in full football mode for both the UEFA Europa League and the Betway Cup against Juventus.
This means every single seat in the lower tier will now be in use from day one, with a maximum Stadium capacity of 54,000 for these first two fixtures due to a safety certificate limit.Season Ticket Holders in Blocks 145-155 of the new Bobby Moore (North) Stand are now able to buy their seat for the return leg against NK Domzale on Thursday 4 August. Their priority window will run until 5pm on Saturday 30 July.
In the meantime, all remaining tickets elsewhere in the ground are to go on General Sale from 9am Saturday 30 July.
The Europa return leg will not be televised in the UK.
Additional tickets in the lower South tier have now been made available for the Juventus game. The friendly fixture on Sunday 7 August, which will include the Stadium’s official opening ceremony, had been claimed to be sold out for some months, but around 3,000 extra tickets have been added.
Well they could buy their season ticket seat if they hadn’t been told it wouldn’t be available and bought a seat elsewhere instead…
