West Ham United Football Club are based in east London. They are one of eight clubs who have never fell below the second tier of English football and have a rather modest selection of honors. They have won three FA Cups, one European cup. In 2016 West Ham sealed a deal which will see them play their home games at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in what is a very unique deal. The deal has brought with it some controversy between fans and pundits alike. Essentially West Ham will rent the stadium, but are still able to reach sizeable earnings from tickets and refreshments.
This hasn’t gone down well with broader Premier League fans as they feel it gives West Ham a huge advantage. Unlike other clubs, they will not have to fork out millions for a new ground. The upkeep of the ground will be down to the council, so essentially the tax player will be paying to maintain West Ham’s ground.
Whether you agree or not, it is happening and West Ham are set to benefit as they will have more funds free for attracting talent to the club. We suggest keeping a close eye on West Ham in the next few years as this deal, along with having a wonderful manager, Slaven Bilic, at the reigns with a more than capable team, might enable the Hammers to challenge for the top four spots and potentially an all-coveted Champions League spot.
