West Ham United FC
are housed in one end, in the lower tier of the relatively modern Sir Trevor Brooking Stand.
The usual allocation for away supporters is 2,200, but if demand requires, away fans can
be allocated the whole of the lower tier of the North Stand, where up to 3,600 supporters
can be accommodated.
The ground is compact, with the fans are seated
the pitch. This coupled with the passionate support of the West Ham faithful can make for
a vibrant atmosphere. However this can be intimidating for away
supporters, so exercise caution around the ground. I personally enjoyed my visit and it is
certainly not as bad as it was a few years ago and the
West Ham fans can still give rendition of their club anthem 'I'm forever
blowing bubbles....'. Inside
the ground the Shire Foods
Chicken Balti Pie'
(£2.60) is available.
