Big pay-off for West Ham  £800m stadium plans get the green light

If proposals for the £800 million MSG Sphere stadium on their doorstep are approved, West Ham will reap significant benefits.

We reported last month on plans for a spectacular new stadium on West Ham’s doorstep; the government has not yet decided what to do.

Reactions in Stratford to the proposed construction of a 300-foot, Las Vegas-style sphere next to West Ham United’s home stadium, London Stadium, have been conflicting.

Concerns have been raised by a number of local businesses and residents regarding the plans.

Supporters of West Ham will surely have seen the massive sphere built in Vegas. For those who haven’t, the image and video in this story will demonstrate it.

The Madison Square Garden Entertainment Company intends to construct a replica of the Las Vegas arena next to West Ham’s stadium if they are given final approval.

It is expected that animated ads will be displayed throughout the 21,500-seat stadium for the next 25 years.

The plans have not yet been approved by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Leveling Up Secretary Michael Gove.

Some business owners are worried about bringing in even more tourists than West Ham, the Abba Arena, and the Westfield shopping center already bring to the area.

West Ham will gain a great deal, though, if plans for the £800 million MSG Sphere stadium close by are approved.

Given that MSG plans to invest heavily in improving the traffic and transportation infrastructure in and around Statford, both West Ham fans and frequent visitors will benefit from these developments.

One of the biggest complaints from many Hammers fans about the move to Stratford is the commute to and from games.

Stratford train station is currently the seventh busiest in the UK, handling traffic from the Westfield shopping center, West Ham’s 62,500-seat stadium, and commuters heading to and from the heart of London.

MSG intends to enhance the experience for everyone by constructing a brand-new Stratford station entrance and ticketing hall, rescheduling events to take place outside of rush hour, and liaising with organizations such as West Ham regarding travel requirements.

Furthermore, there are plans to improve the road and highway network around the London Stadium, making it easier for West Ham United supporters to get there on matchdays.

The location that MSG describes as “an inaccessible site” is supposed to be transformed into a hub. According to MSG, there will be major highway upgrades, which will cheer on Hammers supporters who know how difficult it can be to leave games while traveling.

Among the enhancements that West Ham supporters would gain from are:
