History and description

In the early 20th century, the West Ham football club found itself in a dispute with its landlords over the rent. After looking for a new home, they agreed to use a field that was used by a Catholic school. The first match of the season was played at the Boleyn Ground on September 1st, 1904. Over 10,000 spectators watched West Ham beat Millwall 3-0.

The ground initially consisted of a basic structure, but it was soon expanded in 1919 with a new east stand and later in 1925 with a new west stand and terracing at the short ends. This increased the capacity to about 40,000 people.

The Boleyn Ground sustained heavy damage in the Second World War when it was hit by a V-1 bomb. It was soon rebuilt, however.

In 1961, a roof was added to the North Bank, which meant that all stands had cover. The ground underwent its last major pre-1990s change in 1969 when a new East Stand was built.

The highest attendance at Boleyn Ground was 42,322 during a match with Tottenham Hotspur in 1970.

The stadium underwent a major redevelopment in the 1990s when it was converted into an all-seater. The works included construction of two new stands at the short ends and major refurbishments on the other stands. Boleyn Ground received its current shape in 2001 with the opening of a new West Stand, which raised capacity to its present level.

Despite the renovations being conducted, Boleyn Ground remained a limited ground with few expansion options. West Ham started looking into the option of moving away to a new ground, with the London Olympic Stadium soon appearing as the prime candidate.

After a long and drawn-out bidding process, West Ham were finally granted a 99-year lease on the Olympic Stadium in early 2013. The redevelopment of the stadium followed an extensive process that began in late 2012 and lasted until summer 2016. After moving into their new home, West Ham experienced success in their first season playing in their new stadium.

West Ham played their last game at Boleyn Ground on May 10, 2016, receiving Manchester United for a league fixture.

In September 2016, the demolition of the stadium commenced. The stadium will be replaced by a housing development.
