West Ham have confirmed that some of the freshly-available Olympic Stadium seats will be obtainable as season tickets.

Earlier this week the club revealed that they had secured an out-of-court settlement entitling West Ham to a 3,000 seat capacity increase at Stratford - extending the maximum capacity to 60,000.

And it was confirmed on Wednesday that some of the extra seats would be made available to those seeking to obtain season tickets - although exactly how many remains to be confirmed.

"Thousands more of our supporters who are on the season ticket waiting list will now have the opportunity to watch Premier League football at our home," read a joint statement released on behalf of co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan.

"The atmosphere this season has been magnificent and this increase will only enhance it further, leading to an even greater match day experience for our fans. It is important that we give as many of our loyal supporters as possible the opportunity to watch their team in the flesh.

"We are doing everything we can to grow and develop this football club, on and off the pitch, for the benefit of our supporters and our community, and maximising the full capacity of London Stadium is a hugely positive step forward for everyone."

West Ham's season ticket waiting list has been the centre of much controversy in recent months, after the club either ignored or dismissed requests from numerous subscribers to advise them of their position on the list.
