The official West Ham United Supporters Club announced tonight that they have secured a new venue close to the Olympic Stadium.

The club, which stands in Castle Street next to the Boleyn Ground was threatened with closure when West Ham moved to Stratford in the summer of 2016.

However following the concerted effort of some determined individuals, including the recently-formed West Ham United Independent Supporters Association, the club has secured a new home at Stour Space, Roach Road E3 - a short walk from the stadium.

"We are pleased to announce that the new Executive Committee of West Ham United Supporters Club has secured a match day bar and cafe close to the London Stadium," read a statement published on the WHUSC's website.

"The new venue at Stour Space will open from 10am until 10:30pm for weekend matches and 4pm until 8pm for week day matches. Breakfast will be served from 10am weekends with food available throughtout the day to members.

"Our famous match day, four-pint jugs will be available and we will also be providing a bottle bar.

"We are pleased to be working in partnership with Stour Space who have kindly agreed to provide the Executive Committee with exclusive use of the venue for Supporters Club members to help us keep our historical institution open.

"This is our opportunity to breathe some life back into our members club in the hope that we can eventually secure our own venue in time.

"We expect this new facility to be incredibly popular, particularly is it is one of the closest venues to The London Stadium with a footbridge joining the park just a few metres away.

"Please note that the match day bar and cafe will be strictly members only - capacity at present will be 200 but could extend to 300 in the very near future."

The venue opens for business on Saturday, 30 September ahead of the Premier League meeting with Swansea. The Club also confirmed that its existing site in Castle Street will remain open to members.
