West Ham secure move to Olympic Stadium
Iconic venue is to become the club's new home from the 2016/17 season
West Ham United have confirmed that the Olympic Stadium will become their new home from 2016.
The club, who were named as the preferred bidders for the venue back in December, have been granted a 99-year lease for a stadium that was the centrepiece of last summer's London Olympic Games.
When the renovation work on the stadium is completed, it will have a capacity of 54,000 while there are plans for a retractable seating system to allow for athletics events.
