West Ham United have announced that they have been granted planning permission to increase the capacity at the London Stadium from 60,000 to 62,500 seats.

West Ham United have announced that they have been granted planning permission to increase the capacity at the London Stadium from 60,000 to 62,500 seats.

The Hammers can begin their work on adding the extra 2,500 seats once a safety certificate application has been officially completed.

A statement released on the club's website said: "West Ham United is delighted to confirm that planning permission has been granted to increase the matchday capacity at London Stadium to 62,500.


"With an extra 2,500 seats to be released once the safety certificate application has been completed, West Ham United will be able to once again look forward to breaking the club's attendance record and welcoming more of our loyal supporters to Hammers matches.

"This will meet the growing demand for tickets, with consistent 60,000 capacity crowds in the Premier League and the magnificent attendances in the UEFA Europa League complemented by a sell-out on Wednesday night for the League Cup fourth round tie against Manchester City, with supporters enjoying watching David Moyes' team continuing to evolve and impress.

"The expansion is another positive step forward for the club in ultimately reaching the stadium's full capacity – now close to 67,000 due to the enhancements to the Bobby Moore and Sir Trevor Brooking stands - which would see West Ham United's home in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park become the biggest Premier League stadium in London."

West Ham, who have sold out every Premier League match so far this campaign, will be hoping their supporters can get behind Moyes's men once again when they welcome perennial League Cup winners Man City to the capital on Wednesday.
