  1. As a huge Hammers fan from Bothell (just outside Seattle) I cannot wait to go to this match! My son and I will have our kits on and are taking bubble blowers, hopefully they let us bring them in!

    I figured I’d be in my old age before I was able to see West Ham in person, as a London trip isn’t in the cards in the near future. So happy that the club is making this trip!

    Thanks for this fantastic website, I check it several times daily and it makes me feel like a true fan, even from nearly 5,000 miles away. COYI!
