"West Ham United FC - Upton Park"  Ref: BC113
The stadium has a total capacity of 35,333 all seated. The stadium has been subject to considerable redevelopment since the early 1990s:
· 1993: South Bank replaced by a new 9,000 seat, two tier stand named in honour of former captain Bobby Moore, who had died earlier that year. The stand also incorporates executive boxes as well as a digital clock.
· 1995: North Bank replaced by a new 6,000 seat, two tier stand named the 'Centenary Stand' now re-named as the "Sir Trevor Brooking Stand". The East Stand Lower is also made all seater.
· 2001: West Stand replaced by a new 15,000 seat, two tier stand named the 'Dr. Martens Stand'. The stand also incorporates executive boxes on two levels as well as the West Ham United Hotel.
Plans were submitted to increase the capacity to approximately 40,500 through the building of a new larger East Stand, that would additionally use the spare space that was created when the Doctor Martens stand was built further West than the old West Stand. This will result in a fully enclosed stadium by joining the new stand to the Centenary Stand and the Bobby Moore Stand. Relegation to the Football League Championship in 2003 resulted in the development being delayed. However promotion to the FA Premier League via the Play-Offs in May 2005 resulted in the immediate re-submission of plans to Newham London Borough Council.
Throughout 2006, talk was rife of West Ham moving to the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Olympics, but it was not until early 2011 that this was confirmed
