London Stadium owner E20 and West Ham have agreed new terms which will allow West Ham, subject to regulatory permissions, to sell up to 60,000 tickets for games as soon as possible, also leaving scope to expand up to 66,000 seats for future matches. In a joint statement, Lyn Garner, chief executive of E20, and West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady said:
West Ham United and E20 will now work together to maximise this magnificent stadium for the benefit of fans, our community and the public purse. Both parties are fully committed to making the London Stadium the jewel in London’s crown that we all know it can be.
