West Ham United vice chairman Karren Brady insists she and the the club’s owners will make the Hammers’ new stadium a ‘jewel in the London crown’.

West Ham moved to the former Olympic Stadium in the summer of 2016, however have thus far failed to make it their home, in both a footballing and business sense.

As well as not been able to find their former glory days of the Boleyn at the London Stadium, the move has too been shrouded in controversy, however Brady insists things will change and it won’t be long until the stadium is used to it’s full potential and take the Hammers to the next level.

“We firmly believe the stadium move remains in the best interests of our supporters. It has helped us to increase attendances and, therefore, the revenue that we are able to invest in the global stars who may not have been attracted to the club previously.” said Brady in her column in the Evening Standard.

She then added: “We will continue to devote time, effort and money, but what the stadium needs is strong leadership and I have every faith that the Mayor of London will now use the findings of the report as a catalyst to deliver it.”

Reports of retractable seating, subsiding from outside parties and a 99-year-contract are just some of the issues that have been raised since the 2016 move, but Brady insists everything is in good hands and going in the right direction.

“There is a clear opportunity to make this stunning, iconic stadium the jewel in London’s crown by adding a year-round programme of world-class events and vibrant content to the magnetic pull of the Premier League.” she continued.

“Now is the time for us to work in harmony, to ensure that London Stadium delivers the long-term legacy that the people of our great city deserve.”
