Olympic Stadium capacity up to 60,000
Encouraging news with today's announcement that the capacity at the Olympic Stadium has been increased from 54,000 to 60,000. Not sure where they're going to put the seats, can only assume the club has borrowed a few extra wooden chairs from Ken's Cafe. Sixty thousand seats gives us parity with Arsenal's capacity at the Emirates Library and is maybe a sign we can become bigger than the Gunners. The Evening Standard recently had a worrying feature pointing out that clubs moving to a new stadium often have a dip in home form so it's important we move to the OS after a great end to the season with everyone buzzing. But hopefully with 60,000 fans singing the Payet song it's going to be something special.
