West Ham United Supporters' Club Chairman Ken Hill is fully behind the club's move to the Olympic stadium.

The switch has caused protests amongst some sections of the Hammers support.

But Hill told whufc.com: "I think the club has needed this for quite some time and the plans are absolutely fantastic.

"My first thought when I saw the plans was 'When can I get my Season Ticket?'. Secondly, I thought it was really well laid-out and it needs to be embraced and everyone can see the pitch quite comfortably.

"Without a doubt, I think this is a move that the club needs to make. We need to move to a new stadium to compete with the big clubs and hopefully, before I kick the bucket, I can see my team playing in Europe."
