For many West Ham United fans the London Stadium is slowly starting to feel like home, now it is more of a home run.

West Ham are already going into their fourth season at their new ground.

The initial move was beset by problems.

And West Ham supporters have struggled to adapt to their new surroundings after 112 years at the historic Boleyn Ground.

Stadium slowly starting to feel like home

West Ham’s switch to the former Olympic Stadium has been described as ‘the deal of the century’ for the club.

But it came with a number of sacrifices.

One of them is that, as anchor tenants and not owners, West Ham have to share their stadium with other sports and events.

Rugby matches, athletics and concerts have all been staged at the ground.

Taste of America as famous rivalry comes to London Stadium

And now a taste of America is coming to East London as West Ham’s home ground gets the home run treatment.

The London Stadium has been transformed into baseball mode for the New York Yankees vs Boston Red Sox match which takes place on June 28 and 29.

 

It is quite an honour that a prestigious double-header between the two most famous teams in baseball will take place at West Ham’s stadium (London Stadium).

It will be the first time ever the Yankees and Red Sox rivalry has spilled outside of the USA.
