"It is a wonderful feeling to know that more of our fans will be able to watch affordable Premier League football at London Stadium," read a statement attributed to both David Sullivan and David Gold.

"We look forward to the match day atmosphere becoming even more magnificent in 2019."

The first match for which the new capacity will come into play will be the fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion, scheduled for Wednesday 2 January.

Meanwhile West Ham plan to increase the stadium capacity even further ahead of the start of next season, with 66,000 the target following an agreement with the LLDC.
