According to a report from the Sun, West Ham face the prospect of playing with retracted stands and an athletic track at the London Stadium if coronavirus sees Premier League season runs into July.

The current campaign has been postponed until April 30th because of the pandemic.

It is unclear at the moment, however, whether that postponement will be push back even further.

Whenever West Ham do return to action, they face some incredibly tough games. In their final nine fixtures they still have to play Tottenham, Manchester United and Newcastle away and Chelsea and Wolves at home.

Home games will obviously be vitally important for the Hammers. They need their fans onside and will be looking to make the London Stadium a fortress between now and the end of the season.

 

But they might have their work cut out with that.

According to a report from the Sun, West Ham face the prospect of playing with retracted stands and an athletic track at the London Stadium if coronavirus sees Premier League season runs into July.

Now, the atmosphere at the London Stadium is fairly poor at the best of times. If a running track is added in whilst Premier League football is still being played, it will be even worse.

And that could end up being very bad news for West Ham.
