  • While it still looks kind of unfinished, it's a good stadium, there is enough room in the seats, and the one I was in had padding! Food and drink isn't cheap, but name me a Premier League venue where it is. Security presence was high, but not intrusive, tho' to be fair I was there for a Rugby League 4 Nations game (England v Australia.) It might be different for Premier League football games. It is a smoke free stadium, and this includes e-cigarettes There is an almost suprisingly large number of toilets for both genders.
  • The Accrington game gave me a chance to visit another new ground because tickets were on general sale. As far as the ground is concerned it's design and decor were nice. The actual game and atmosphere were poor despite nearly 40,000 fans attending. The stadium holds 57,000. I sat in the upper tier with a reasonable view of the game.
  • Love the stadium. I'm a season ticket holder and I love our new home. Good for a cheeky bit of shopping afterwards to keep the family happy
  • I have been to both home games so far and my impressions are generally good. Great views, easy access from Stratford station which is much more accessible than Upton Park station. Plenty of toilets. Atmosphere pretty good but we need a league game against a top side to see what it's really like. Only drawbacks, horrendous queues for food & drinks, and the coffee was lukewarm. The outlets do take cash and cards, by the way. Some congestion on the way back to Stratford but that will lessen as people work out alternatives.
  • Can't rate any lower. Well modern stadium but many downsides. 1) poor view, too far away. 2) excessive prices for food and drinks. 3) no own WHUFC stewards, causing unsafe situations inside the stadium. West Ham owners thought they hit the jackpot, but my prediction sadly is it will turn out to be a cat in a bag. Welcome to the Ann Summer's Pleasure Dome
