Matchday Guide // West Ham V Fulham

Friday night football returns to London Stadium for the first time in 2019 this evening, with West Ham playing host to Fulham (7:45pm KO).

Last time at the venue, the Hammers turned out one of their finest performances of the season so far, holding then-league leaders Liverpool to a 1-1 draw that the Hammers were unlucky not to have won. Having followed it up with a draw at Crystal Palace, a victory over their city rivals would help solidify their top-half standing in the Premier League.

Relegation-threatened Fulham have been beaten in their previous two outings, but will be eyeing a scalp at London Stadium this evening.

We'd like to encourage all fans to arrive early for the fixture, and pay attention to the search regime in place for West Ham United matches here at London Stadium to ensure the best possible experience when visiting the venue.


Ahead of the fixture, we’ve compiled some handy information to help you make the most of your trip to London Stadium.

Help our charitable partner- Isla’s Fight:

At London Stadium, we are proud to name Isla’s Fight as our nominated charitable partner for all West Ham United home fixtures. A case close to the hearts of everyone at West Ham United and London Stadium, keep an eye out for charity collections taking place on Stadium Island before the match kicks off at 7:45pm.

Bridge Searching:

Our search process for this season is designed to improve security, reduce queuing times at turnstiles and alleviate congestion around the podium level.

The regime sees bag search checkpoints stationed directly adjacent to the bridges leading on to the stadium island, a process has been used throughout London Stadium’s summer of concerts and world athletics and proved particularly successful in helping the flow of spectators to the stadium.

In order to allow easy access and cause minimal delays, it is recommended that supporters arrive at least one hour prior to kick-off and avoid bringing any bags to matches unless absolutely necessary. Large suitcases or luggage are not permitted in the stadium.

All bags will be searched and supporters may also be asked to remove jackets or coats in preparation for search. All approved bags are also subject to additional inspections within the Stadium. There will be an access lane at each checkpoint for supporters with accessibility needs.

These are not ticket check points, allowing supporters without tickets to gain access to the podium and visit the Stadium Store and Ticket Offices.

For ticket collections, please use Bridge Two for the quickest entry to Stadium Island, hospitality guests are best advised to enter over Bridge Three, and away fans should enter over Bridge Four.


Bags and baggage:

We would like to discourage all supporters from bringing bags to West Ham matches unless absolutely necessary. Please note that if you do need to bring a bag with you, please arrive early and allow plenty of time to accommodate a full search before entry. Large items of baggage, and luggage, are not permitted.

Late Entry Turnstiles:

Additionally at London Stadium this season, each entrance section on the podium will have one late turnstile open after kick-off. Any supporters who arrive late for the match are advised to head to the relevant entrance for their seat, where they will be directed to the late-opening turnstile.
