Looking for hospitality tickets at a West Ham United home game? I’ve got you covered.
(Check the bottom of this page for an inquiry form)
London Stadium is a big, beautiful, modern stadium in the East End of London where the 2012 Olympics were held. Capacity is around 60,000 seats. It lacks the charm of West Ham’s former home, Upton Park, and people often complain that the pitch is too far from the seats and the atmosphere lacks a bit, but it’s a comfortable and easy-to-reach place to see Premier League soccer. And I have a pretty nice hospitality package available there as part of my English soccer trip planning and consulting services.
The hospitality packages I sell there actually both offer access to the same area, which is called The Academy — a nod to West Ham’s famous player-development system. In both cases, seats are upper-tier along the midfield line.
The lounge itself is called the Great Briton, and with this package you can go in there before the game, at halftime, and after the game. You get a free drink at halftime (including beer, wine and soft drinks), but that gets a little chaotic. One of the nicest things about the lounge access is hanging out after the game (for an hour after the final whistle) to let the crowds clear out from the streets and stations around London Stadium.
Here is a shot inside the Great Briton Lounge:
And here’s a drinks menu:
The seats are in blocks 207 to 209, upper-tier along the midfield line. Here’s a seating chart (click to expand):
Here are a couple of photos I took from the seats (in addition to the one at the top of this post):
What’s the Cost of West Ham Hospitality?
West Ham certainly tends to be cheaper than the bigger Premier League clubs. The prices depend, as always, on the opposition, so I’ve been quoting prices this season from about $125 US per person for an opponent like Newcastle or Bournemouth up to $300 for Chelsea or nearly $500 for Liverpool. Liverpool has become their own level of Premier League pricing!
