West Ham have revealed they are looking into increasing the capacity of the Olympic Stadium to 60,000 before they move in.
The Hammers will bring the curtain down on 112 years at the Boleyn Ground at the end of this season having agreed a 99-year lease to take over the Olympic Stadium.
The venue currently has a capacity of 54,000 but the club have revealed that may not be enough to accommodate all the supporters who have registered an interest in coming to home games next season.
West Ham are now looking into increasing the capacity in time for the start of the 2016/17 campaign, confidently predicting they will still sell out the majority of matches.
“The board are also pleased to confirm that following extraordinary demand for tickets at the Hammers’ new world-class home, West Ham are now doing everything in their power to expand the capacity to 60,000,” a statement on the club’s official website read.
