Located less than ten minutes away from where the Hammers’ previously played home matches at the club’s Rush Green training ground, the move will provide a fantastic home for the ever-growing band of loyal supporters that back Matt Beard’s side.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of new player signings and the unveiling of the state-of-the-art training base at Chadwell Heath, with the pivotal move coming as part of the club’s continued commitment to providing an environment of excellence for current and future generations of women’s players.

Following last season’s record-breaking first Barclays FA WSL match played at London Stadium, combined with continued unwavering support from fans and huge growth in home attendances, the club is now looking to build on this success for next season.

The move will enable attendances to increase further and present even more supporters with the exciting opportunity to watch the Hammers squad, which is filled with internationals from across the world.

“The demand to see women’s football has never been greater and our new matchday home will allow even more of our loyal fans to watch our games live, as well as enjoy an even better matchday experience at this impressive stadium.

“As we strive to become a leading team on the pitch, our continued progress will help our West Ham United women’s team to be a leading figure off the pitch.”
