Bosses at Premier League football club West Ham are preparing for a High Court fight over the use of seats at their London Stadium.
Directors are embroiled in a dispute with arena owners E20 Stadium over how many seats can be used on match days.
The two sides also disagree over whether the stadium owners should apply for safety certificates which would increase capacity from 57,000 to 60,000.
A trial is due to start at the High Court in London later this month.
Detail of the case has emerged in a judge’s ruling on a preliminary issue.
Mr Justice Snowden said in the ruling that a trial was due to start on November 19.
