Today's Boleyn Ground Talking Points
The Boleyn Ground, often referred to as Upton Park, was a football stadium located in Upton Park, east London. From 1904 to 2016 it was the home of West Ham United, with their predecessors Thames Ironworks playing their home games at Hermit Road.
The stadium was also briefly used in the early 1990s by Charlton Athletic during their years of financial difficulty. The seating capacity of the ground at closure was 35,016. From the 2016–17 season, West Ham United play their home games at the London Stadium in nearby Stratford. The last first-class match played at the Boleyn Ground was on 10 May 2016, a 3–2 Premier League win against Manchester United.
The stadium is set to be demolished to make way for a new development.Close
