Olympic Stadium capacity increased

os2016Planning permission has been submitted to slightly increase the capacity of the Olympic Stadium in football mode.  Originally the London 2012 converted stadium was planned to seat 54,000 but a new application has asked that now be increased to 54,683. The same application reveals that the stadium will have a capacity of 54,240 in Athletics mode.

The Stadium will retain 60,000 seats but many of these will be cordoned off in football mode to ensure good sight lines to enable the venue to comply with UEFA Category 4 guidelines.

  1. If Mudbath Mary stays they wont need those extra seats,he will have killed the supporters enthusiasm totally with another two years of his pants football!!

  2. Capacity should be 80,000 with season tickets much cheaper. Atmos would improve and we would be more appealing to to managers like Klopp and to players too
