West Ham host Manchester United tonight in their final game at The Boleyn Ground, also known as Upton Park. Opened in 1904 the Stadium has hosted over 42,000 people at a time, during their meeting with Tottenham Hotspur on the 17th of October 1970. Since the ground was redeveloped and seating replaced where fans once stood to cheer on The Hammers, the ground now hosts just over 35,000 people. The record attendance at Upton Park since it has become an all-seater is 35,550, recorded against Manchester City on 21 September 2002 in a Premier League match.
West Ham will be moving into the Olympic Stadium in Stratford next season, a huge 60,000 seat masterpiece used at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. We’re hoping The Irons can put in a good performance and say farewell to their ground on a high, but we know Manchester United won’t go easy on them as they are fighting for a Champions League place!
