We travelled up early enough to have a walk around the Queen Elizabeth Park and were able to get our first close-up look at West Ham United's home from next season.
We could not help but be moved by the sheer scale of the magnificent stadium and the park that surrounds it. What a fantastic achievement by Karren Brady, David Gold and David Sullivan in masterminding the club's move to this fantastic stadium!
We then returned to the reservation centre for our appointment. There were 11 people in our party and we were given a warm welcome from Kyla and other members of staff.
After watching the introductory video featuring Ray Winstone, we were invited into the board room (because we were a large group) before Kyla gave us an in-depth briefing on what options were available, ranging from the Club 1966 seats to the Band 1 and 2 options available to us on both the East and West sides of the stadium.
We spent almost an hour and half carefully considering all of the options available to us and we were assisted throughout by Kyla who patiently guided us through the process.
The state-of-the-art technology allowed for us to choose a specific seat option and then be given a very realistic computer generated image of our view from that seat in the stadium.
At the end of the process, our contingent of 11 placed deposits on 28 seats for the King's Lynn Irons Club in the new East Stand which will accommodate around 22,000 Hammers fans in what is one of the largest 'Kop Style' stands in the world.
Before leaving we had a number of photographs taken which will be displayed on the new 10-metre high 'Stadium Wrap' on match days. Finally, we were all presented with a special commemorative 'founders' pin badge.
Our other main KLIC group of around 20-plus members are due to attend the reservation centre in December where they will be selecting their seats in there favoured position in the new Bobby Moore Stand.
We believe that we have achieved something special for our King's Lynn Irons Club members and now we can't wait for August 2016 and those first matches in our incredible new home.
