David Gold has revealed on social media that he hopes to increase the capacity at West Ham United’s stadium.

The London Stadium currently holds 57,000 but West Ham joint chairman David Gold has tweeted to say that he is hopeful of starting next season with a capacity of 60,000.

That would be an increase of 3,000.

The plan had initially been to hold 60,000 in the former Olympic Stadium but troubles with violence in the stadium and standing forced that plan to be put on hold.

On paper, West Ham are almost selling out their allocation of 57,000 each game but in reality, there are still a number of empty seats each game.

West Ham fans took to Twitter to point this out to their chairman.

Here are a mixture of the best tweets in response to David Gold announcing that he is hopeful of increasing the capacity of the London Stadium to 60k for the start of next season.
