West Ham news: Hammers to install ‘wonderful and long-awaited’ claret pitch surround this week

West Ham United have confirmed they will finally install a claret pitch surround at the London Stadium this week.

The Hammers, at their rented arena, have previously had a green covering over the athletics track which permanently resides at the ground as a legacy from the 2012 Olympics in the English capital.
