The first stage of the redevelopment came in , when the South Bank was replaced by a 9, seat, two-tier stand named in honour of former captain Bobby Moore , who had died earlier that year.
The stand incorporated executive boxes as well as a digital clock. The North Bank was demolished in and a new 6, seat, two-tier stand named the "Centenary Stand" was opened on its site the following year; this was later renamed the "Sir Trevor Brooking Stand".
The East Stand Lower was also converted into an all-seater stand. The final change came in , when the West Stand was replaced by a 15, seat, two-tier stand named the " Dr.
Martens Stand". The stand incorporated executive boxes on two levels as well as the West Ham United Hotel. This gave the stadium a 35, all-seater capacity.
There were plans to increase the capacity to approximately 40, through the building of a new larger East Stand, that would have used the spare space created when the Doctor Martens stand was built further West than the old West Stand.
However, these plans never came to fruition. Through , talk was rife of West Ham moving to the Olympic Stadium after the Summer Olympics , with speculation increasing after new club chairman Eggert Magnusson confirmed he was interested in a move there.
However, in , club CEO Scott Duxbury announced West Ham had obtained planning permission to expand the East Stand; this would have brought the stadium's capacity over 40, The decision, in favour of West Ham's bid, was unanimous.
West Ham were offered a year lease and hoped to move there in time for the —17 season. In February , West Ham announced the sale of the Boleyn Ground to the development company the Galliard Group, to be effected once the move to the Olympic Stadium was complete.
With the coach delayed, the players were late arriving at the ground and the scheduled kick-off was moved to In the 2,th match played at the ground,  with both sides looking to qualify for European football in the —17 season, in front of a crowd of 34,, West Ham took the lead in the tenth minute through Diafra Sakho , only for Manchester United to make the score 1—2 with two goals from Anthony Martial.
However, Michail Antonio equalized for West Ham and Winston Reid scored a third in the 80th minute to make it 3—2, the final score.
The following day, the Metropolitan Police issued pictures of four men they hoped to identify in connection with the coach attack.
The possibility of a statue of Bobby Moore and a landscaped garden named after him has also been revealed. The plans caused controversy for only including 51 "affordable" homes and no social housing.
The inscriptions have been reproduced in a pathway at the new ground. The record attendance at the ground was 42,, against Tottenham in an old Division One match on 17 October , when the North and South Banks were terraced, as was the old "Chicken Run" at the front of the East Stand.
The Boleyn Ground became an all-seater stadium from the early s because clubs had to meet new FA regulations for stadium safety after the Hillsborough Disaster in The record attendance after Upton Park became an all-seater was 35,, on 21 September for a Premier League match against Manchester City.
Before its closure, the ground had a total capacity of 35,,  all seated. The Sir Trevor Brooking Stand formerly the North Bank then the Centenary Stand was built in which coincided with the club's th season, after being formed in as Thames Ironworks.
The lower tier behind the goal was split between home and away fans. West Ham initially gave around 2,—3, tickets to away supporters, going from the furthest side to the left of the bottom tier right up to behind the goal.
If the away side could not sell all their tickets, they were returned and re-sold to home supporters, as there was big demand from West Ham fans to purchase seats in the lower seating area.
Home fans in the lower area generally preferred to stand during games and sing throughout. The East Stand was situated on the far side of the Boleyn Ground, opposite the West Stand which housed the offices and dressing rooms.
The stand was the oldest and smallest stand in the stadium, being built in  and held only 5, seats due to its narrow width.
The stand was known as the loudest and most intimidating stand at Upton Park. This was an old wooden stand standing room only on the east side of the pitch.
Unusually, the roof sloped down away from the pitch and it was surrounded by a similar sort of wire to that used on chicken runs, so when viewed from the opposite side of the ground it looked like a chicken run.
The front of the stand was very close to the pitch. It was knocked down and rebuilt in The stand was also the only stand left at Upton Park to still have a small minority of wooden seats at the time of demolition , in the middle of the upper tier.
There were also plans to build a new East Stand soon after the Dr. Martens stand was completed in , which would have seen the stadium's capacity rise from 35, to around 40,, but the plans were put on hold after a combination of resistance from the local residents behind the stand and the club's relegation from the Premier League in , which spiralled the club into debt at the time.
The Bobby Moore Stand formerly the South Bank was built in and held up to 9, spectators, all seated. The stand was built originally to comply with new stadium all-seater regulations, and the name of the stand was decided after the death of the club's legendary captain from the successful mids side in the same year of construction.
The lower tier of the Bobby Moore stand, like the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand, was well known for its supporters' passion and the atmosphere created through standing and singing.
The stand had executive boxes situated between the upper and lower tiers, and a digital clock. The stand was renovated in after the construction of the new Dr.
Martens Stands, with a second LED video screen in the stadium being introduced between the two stands and new seats added on the end of the stand to join with the new Dr.
Martens Stand. The West Stand was the newest and by far the largest stand inside Upton Park, holding up to 15, spectators and was renamed after Betway became West Ham's official sponsors.
