Premier League stadium looks unrecognisable as it is transformed into athletics arena during summer

THE London Stadium has undergone a dramatic transformation just weeks before the new Premier League season.

West Ham‘s home ground is used for a multitude of events throughout the year, including gigs and baseball matches.

It also stages a wide array of concerts

It’s gone back to its roots for this year’s London Athletics Meet

The stadium was, of course, initially built to stage athletics events for the 2012 Olympics.

And it’s gone back to its roots ahead of this year’s London Athletics Meet.

The latest London Athletics Meet – formerly known as the Anniversary Games – takes place on Sunday afternoon.

The event – which draws thousands of athletics fans – is part of the Wanda Diamond League series.

An excerpt of a statement on the Games‘ website read: “World Class athletics is coming back to the stadium that bought you Super Saturday, gold medals galore and glorious track and field moments.

“Stars of the Commonwealth Games, European and World Championships will be headed for the London Stadium next summer for the biggest one-day athletics spectacular of the year.”

The London Stadium underwent an insane makeover last weekend for Monster Jam.

Over 50,000 fans attended the event showcasing American monster trucks in all their glory.

And it will undergo another face-lift just a few days after the meet to transform it into a festival venue.

Their first home match of the season takes place on August 20 and will see them welcome city rivals Chelsea to the London Stadium.
