London Stadium is still evolving and the West Ham fans are still getting used to life in their new ground. The seats that offer the best views, are those closest to the pitch itself – deemed category 1. These seats, especially those running the length of the pitch can cost around £50 – £80 per ticket. Tickets get cheaper as you get further and further away from the pitch with category B and C tickets ranging from £50, for seats near the half way line, to £25 for seats at the back of the stadium. Bare in mind, that if your tickets are at the back of the ground then you may need to being binoculars along to get the best experience. Away fans are seated in the South West section of the Trevor Brooking Stand.
With a capacity of around 60,000 it is a great venue with plenty of seating and as a more modern build there are few restricted view seats which is a bonus. Away fan seating is in the Lower and Upper tiers of the South West corner although this does extend for international or larger matches. While restricted view seats are very scarce at this venue, the back upper seating offers the worst view as it is further away.
You can expect to pay between £25 – £40 for category C matches, £30 – £60 for adults for category B matches (£15 – £60 for under 21’s) and £50-£80 for category A matches although there are some concessions for seniors and those needing accessibility seats. The best and most expensive seats are in the famous 1966 section where you will be looking at the top end prices (in some cases e.g. category A matches, no concessions are made for different age groups or accessibilities).
The West Ham fans, rebels that they are, insist keenly on standing, especially in the Bobby Moore Lower stand, blocks 145-155. If you’re short or don’t like standing for 2 hours, try to avoid sitting there. However, London Stadium is one of the few Premier League venues without tonnes of restricted view seating: away fans in the South West side will be able to see the pitch, but upper tier seats are very far from the action. Aim for lower tier for the best viewing!
