New stadium effect

West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium (now known as the London Stadium) was a very controversial one. The Hammers fought against Spurs for the right to play at the ground - a decision which angered many, including local side Leyton Orient who argued that the stadium's location breached FA rules about clubs being situated too close to each other.

Many Hammers fans were less than pleased to see an end to Upton Park as well. The Boleyn Ground had been the club's home since 1904 and held a special place in supporters' hearts.

Fans weren't happy when the club eventually moved in 2016. The opening games were fraught with problems including security issues and protests about the state of the stadium with some stands being situated very far from the pitch and gaps being seen in the structure.

Despite a lack of love for the ground, attendances have risen by 70% from 33,982 to 57,772. This is due to rise further, with some capacity restrictions now lifted to enable up to 63,000 fans to attend. Eventually the local council should allow this figure to grow to the stadium capacity of 66,000.
