West Ham fans will be able to experience first hand the rebuild Olympic Stadium under the new flood-lights and enclosed roof this evening in the closest thing to a dress rehearsal for what it will be like for Hammers fans when they move in during July next year.
This evening marks the start of the Sainsburys Anniversary games as the second test event of the summer. Usain Bolt will be the star attraction tonight of the three-day event and he will be joined by British Olympic champions Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill amongst a host of other global superstars.
Tickets are still available from £20 tonight and tomorrow and £10 on Sunday. http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/event/35004E7101BB7540
Claret and Hugh will be sending associate editor Sean Whetstone on Friday night and Sunday day to give his first impressions of the new stadium that will become our home next July.
