West Ham United F.C. – London Stadium

West Ham United F.C.-logo

West Ham founded 1895 currently plays at London Stadium from 2016. This stadium is not a football stadium, more like stadium for athletic so it not a surprise that camera angle is too low for proper football TV experience.

Check out the grades and final FICAZ TV INDEX score bellow.


Camera Angle and Zoom

West Ham United F.C. - Main

I don’t know what to do here, except to urge West Ham management to build TV gantry as they have at Old Traford. This stadium has really low stands and I am not sure if they already used current camera position in higher possible location on the stands. Call West Ham and urge them to build TV gantry with the highest position posible. This stadium is new, there is low probability chance that they will move anywhere else anytime soon. If that is the case they need to adapt this stadium for a better TV angle and better TV experience.

Extra points

Those bubbles in the air released before the start of the game and after each home team West Ham goal is so cool that is the main reason why I gave 2 points for HREN bonus, otherwise it would be zero or negative points for sure. There is lots of SkyCam footage during the game, for extra points. The final score is 27 which means a little better than Chelsea and Sevilla FC (26) but just 2 points worse than Leeds United (29) score.

Calculation:

Extra points (max. 16 points) = 4 points
