Olympic Stadium named worst Premier League ground


Filed: Monday, 3rd July 2017

A poll of Premier League grounds has seen the Olympic Stadium named as the worst of them all.

1,500 football supporters who regularly follow their teams away from home were asked by the Football Supporters' Federation to name their favourite and least favourite Premier League grounds.

And whilst Swansea's Liberty Stadium (8/10) and Southampton's St Mary's ground (7.92) came out on top, the Olympic Stadium - where West Ham now play their games - was voted as the worst of all 20 arenas with an average score of 3.74.

"We’ve continued to ask all away supporters to help us understand the needs of away fans by completing the FSF Away Fans Survey," said the FSF in their annual review.

"We’ve crunched the numbers provided on Premier League clubs and produced a league table based on the average scores from almost 1,500 supporters.

"We must say a big 'thank you' to every travelling fan who took the time to complete the survey whilst they made their way home from matches."

Despite the numerous problems witnessed by Hammers fans in the stadium since the club moved from its much-loved Boleyn Ground a year ago, West Ham maintain that they are likely to sell their entire allocation of season tickets - some 55,000 - again this season.

That's despite almost 5,000 season ticket holders from last season having opted not to renew for a second year.
