West Ham is the most proximate Premier League club to Canary Wharf and the City of London.

With a new stadium in the Olympic Park development area, the offices and residential apartments of Canary Wharf and the Square Mile will be just a five minute drive or only three tube stops away.

In fact, there are barely 5,000 metres between West Ham tube station and Canary Wharf tube station which serves top banks, law firms, media companies and other entities such as HSBC, Barclays Capital, Citigroup, Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Reuters, The Daily Telegraph, the Financial Services Authority, Infosys and Credit Suisse.

Canary Wharf is continuing to grow - JP Morgan is preparing to establish its new £1.5 billion European headquarters at Canary Wharf Riverside, and there are numerous skyscrapers at the planning stage. The closest comparison for Canary Wharf's transformation is Manhattan.

West Ham is THE football club of Canary Wharf and the City of London. Unlike Spurs, West Ham United is a genuine inner London team and unlike Chelsea, West Ham is rooted in a highly concentrated urban area.

West Ham offers huge commercial opportunities: as a blue riband investment - "The City of London's team" - in matchday corporate hospitality income - in major sponsorship opportunities - and by developing ancillary hotel and hospitality interests.
