London Stadium set for record crowd

West Ham are set to have a record crowd for a Europa Conference League game this evening with as many as 53,500 expected at the London Stadium tonight.

The early group game from the European competition saw an attendance of 30,230 at the London Stadium against Viborg in August last year.

In September last year the FC Steaua Bucuresti group home game saw an official attendance of 33,312

The biggest home crowd of the group stage was against Anderlecht last October when 40,767 tickets were sold for the London Stadium.

The Hammers then faced Silkeborg IF in October which attracted an attendance of 35,911

West Ham’s home leg of round of 16 against AEK Larnaca was the second most popular home game with an official attendance of 40,482.

West Ham’s ticket office have already sold 52,000 tickets for tonight’s game against KAA Gent and could sell another 500 to 1,500 in the run up to kick off.

A club insider told 6foot2 ‘The anticipated gate tonight is 52,500 to 53,500, we are fairly confident as the ticket sales figures follow patterns 99% of the time”

Either way the quarter final will smash the previous record of 40,767 set against Anderlecht last year.

Should the Hammers get through tonight with a win next we are likely to face Anderlecht again in a semi final at the London Stadium with a sell out possible.

In the Europa League West Ham set London Stadium records with 59,981 against Sevilla and 58,108 against Frankfurt in the home leg of the semi final.
