West Ham and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) are hopeful that the new-look north and south stands at London Stadium will be installed before the start of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Also at the stadium and what came out of the OSB meeting earlier this week is that the arena is set to get high-density free WiFi, another issue that supporters have complained about since the move in 2016 thanks to atrocious mobile phone signal and being unable to get online at the ground.

Back in February of this year, the club announced plans to square off the Sir Trevor Brooking and Bobby Moore stands in order to bring fans closer to the action, something that has been much maligned since the team moved to the former Olympic Stadium in 2016 having left Upton Park.

Khan took control of the stadium in light of the damning Moore Stephens report in 2017 which revealed the conversion of the stadium had cost taxpayers £133m more than initially estimated and stadium owners E20 LLP were losing around £20m per year.

It went a bit quiet on any news regarding the stands in the aftermath of the announcement but now, after a meeting of the Official Supporters Board (OSB) meeting earlier this week, it was announced that the hope is for it to be installed by next August if everything goes to plan.

That cost has risen to £6m this year and will be the same again in 2020 thanks to the two-year Major League Baseball agreement for games to be held in E20, with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox playing two games at the stadium back in June.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will have the final say on the new stands and who is awarded the contract, with LLDC paying the costs for it all and with the Hammers having a big say - they can veto any plans if they deem it necessary to do so.
