West Ham Chief Executive Karen Brady has unveiled plans which she says will “make the London Olympic Stadium a world class football experience.”

Although still in a dispute with East London neighbours Leyton Orient, the Hammers are pressing ahead with their plans for the conversion of the stadium, including a roof and a community pitch located in the Queen Elizabeth Park. 

The club are also launching a new website in order to keep fans up to date with the stadium developments.

Brady promised the stadium would remember the history of the club with the announcement Bobby Moore and Trevor Brooking will both have stands named after them. 

West Ham are due to move in to the stadium in time for the 2016/17 season, with the cost of the redevelopment put at £190 million.
