Premier League football club West Ham United is attempting to expand the capacity of the Olympic Stadium – its home from next season – following “extraordinary” demand for tickets.

A statement published on the club’s website revealed that the board is “doing everything in its power” to expand the capacity to 60,000 seats from the 54,000 capacity.

If the move goes ahead, West Ham will be able to offer 8,000 season tickets for £289 (US$415, €373) because of the additional 5,000 seats that will fall under the pricing band. The club has also projected that around 8,000 season tickets will be sold to under-16s for £99 (US$142, €128).

West Ham is gearing up to play its first season in the Stratford-based ground – which was designed by Populous for the 2012 London Olympic Games – in 2016/17.
