West Ham moved into the London Stadium at the start of the 2016/17 campaign, and ExWHUemployee claimed yesterday that the club are close to securing a new name for their home ground.

The Hammers are finally starting to turn their Stratford home into somewhat of a fortress.

They have lost just two of their last 12 competitive matches at the London Stadium, and the West Ham fans are finally beginning to feel at home.

The Hammers faithful have never been truly happy with the name of the stadium, however, and that might soon be about to change.


Famous West Ham ITK ExWHUemployee claimed that the London Stadium could have a new name before Christmas, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night (Wednesday, September 11th):

“The stadium naming rights should be announced within the next couple of months. They’ve been working on it behind the scenes. They have appointed someone whose role is to work specifically on those kind of things. They think that they will have a stadium name before Christmas.”

Upton Park was always such an iconic venue. And West Ham’s current stadium has a long way to go before it can even come close to the Boleyn.

A new name will provide the Hammers home ground with the fresh new look. And perhaps in 100 years time, the West Ham fans will hold in in the same regard as Upton Park was by their predecessors.
