The London Stadium is one of the newest addition to the Premier League when it hosted its first public event in March 2012. It’s one of the stadiums in London with aesthetically-pleasing design as it sits on a diamond-shaped island between two existing waterways located in the southern section of the Olympic Park. It features a “carnival nature” with colorful areas for concession ponds, parks, seats, and restaurants.
The stadium was the venue of the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, allowing track and field events and opening and closing ceremonies to culminate in London. After it was renovated as a multi-purpose stadium, it acquired the West Ham United Football Club of the Premier League and the UK Athletics (UKA) as its primary tenants. At present, the London Stadium will continue to be used for a series of special events like the Rugby World Cup, IAAF World Championships in Athletics, and World Para Athletics Championships.
