Changes afoot, say stadium operators

The company charged with overseeing operations at the Olympic Stadium have promised a series of changes ahead of tomorrow's Premier League clash with Watford.

Speaking exclusively to KUMB.com, London Stadium 185 - a subsidiary of Vinci - promised a revision of their stewarding policy that has been heavily criticised by West Ham fans in recent weeks.

And although he refrained from giving specific details, Michael Temple - the Head of Commercial at the OS - confirmed that feedback from supporters and stewards had been taken on board.

"There are lots of positive changes in place for tomorrow’s game," he told KUMB.com.




Temple's feedback comes in the wake of yet more concerning reports from stewards at the OS, with one telling KUMB.com that they fear a tragedy could occur if the stadium operators fail to take immediate action.

"If it has not happened already, I predict a serious security factor and a real tragedy will happen," said the steward, who is one of many who moved with the club from Upton Park to Stratford.

"With the blatant absence of Police at the ground and the lack of balls from these stewards, West Ham United will hit the papers for the wrong reasons. Maybe even a death or very serious injury.

"The new wave of stewards just don't know what they are doing. God forbid when Tottenham or Arsenal etc come to the ground."
