The experienced stadium operators have been awarded the 25-year contract by the E20 Stadium LLP – the commercial partnership set up by the London Legacy Development Corporation and London Newham Council to manage the former Olympic Stadium.
West Ham will become the main tenant of the new stadium from 2016 onwards and it will also be used to host athletics events, other sports, entertainment and activities for the local community.
West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “Managing the basic day-to-day operations at a Premier League football stadium is a unique challenge, so we will be passing on our extensive experience and expertise to Vinci to ensure they provide the same high levels of service our supporters have become accustomed to at the Boleyn Ground.
“While Vinci will manage the functional aspects of the matchday operation, we will still be overseeing the overall supporter experience to make sure watching West Ham remains one of the very best days out in the Premier League.”
“We look forward to meeting with Vinci to share our vision for what will be a busy, but exciting, 20 months until we kick off our first game in our stunning new home.”
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “This is more good news in our goal to deliver a long-lasting legacy from London’s Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“Vinci is a world-class operator and set to be a key partner in the creation of a spectacular stadium offering a dynamic range of sport and attractions for Londoners to enjoy.”
David Goldstone Chief Executive London Legacy Development Corporation said: “This marks another step forward in the long-term future of the Stadium.
“Vinci have a great track record and a wealth of experience in managing world-class venues. We are looking forward to working with them and delivering a multi-use stadium capable of hosting a range of different sports and events, including this autumn’s Rugby World Cup.”
