The Stadium

The Park’s most recognisable venue, the Stadium is a magnificent arena that has been designed to host world-class events long into the future.

The Stadium is currently closed and will re-open to the public in 2016.

From 2016, the Stadium becomes the new home of West Ham United FC and the National Competition Centre for athletics in the UK, as well as a major live music venue. 

It will be open all year round for visitor tours, arts and cultural events, conferences and other sporting activities. 

But you don't have to wait until 2016 to experience the majesty of this iconic arena as it will host a number of high-profile events over the next two years. Having already hosted some of the most memorable nights in sporting history during the 2012 Games, the Stadium is set to provide the stage for a spectacular series of sports fixtures including the Rugby World Cup in 2015 and the IAAF World Athletics Championships in 2017.
