Following its reopening in the summer as the new home of West Ham United FC, the centrepiece of the London 2012 Games (formerly the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park) has unveiled new spaces available for corporate hire.

There are nine spaces and 16 boxes suitable for meetings, conferences, dinners and private parties. The venue can also host up to 300 delegates for a sit-down dinner and 1000 for a drinks reception, with rooms overlooking either the stadium or the City of London.

In addition, mini tours have been developed specifically for the meetings and events market. Delegates will be able to see the warm up track or walk along the players’ tunnel, out to the manager’s dug-out, before standing pitch side.

Linda Lennon, London Stadium chief executive officer, said: "This Stadium already has an amazing history from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Rugby World Cup 2015. It has an even more exciting future as the home of West Ham United and UK Athletics. The meetings and events spaces offer a unique opportunity to hold an event in a venue inspired by the achievements of the great athletes who have graced this iconic venue."
