In a series exploring careers connected with Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, we take a look at West Ham United.
West Ham United is a premier league football club – no further introduction needed!
West Ham United and the park
Work is now underway to convert the former Olympic Stadium which is set to become the new home for West Ham in 2016. New retractable seats and a transparent roof, which will re-use the original floodlight lamps, are being installed and the existing athletics track will be replaced.
The West Ham United Community Sports Trust is already active in the area and runs a number of community, health and wellbeing, education and football projects, as well as employability, training, apprenticeships and enterprise schemes. It provides a range of opportunities and uses the power of football to encourage people to improve their futures.
