Record family fun day set for the London Stadium


fam1On Wednesday West Ham will host just short of 10,000 fans coming to the first ever free family fun day at London Stadium.

It will be the biggest fun day in the club’s history and gives season ticket holders the chance to see their heroes for free during half-term.

fam2Although it will be primarily an open training day Slav and his team will hope to entertain the crowd with some cross bar challenges and other fun training challenges.

Due to the large number of supporters at Family Fun Day, the players won’t be able to sign individual autographs on the day, but will be distributing a number of signed footballs. Claret and Hugh understand at least one hundred signed footballs will distributed and other signed merchandise will also be handed out.

Fam3There will be a West Ham United Fan Zone, situated on the London Marathon Community Track, will open from 11am, with a host of inflatable activities, face painting and a penalty shootout competition, whilst mascots Hammerhead and Bubbles will be there to add to the fun.

London Stadium turnstiles A and J will also open from 11am, ahead of the first team training session which will begin at midday. If your print at home e-ticket states Turnstiles A and C, please enter via A, and if it states J and K, please enter via J.

fam4The open session is expected to finish before 2pm but only after attempting to create the largest team photo in West Ham United history! The photo will be made available online for all attendees to download in the following days.

At 2.30pm Slav and the team will host an exclusive drinks reception for Club London members and sponsors while a Hammers Junior party for 300 youngsters is also being hosted.

The junior party is already full and was given out on a first come, first served basis.

Around 4.30pm the manager and team will depart the London Stadium for the airport for their trip to Dubai for warm weather training.

The club say the supporters should remember that this event is all ticket, so please don’t come to the stadium unless you have a ticket. There are still a very small number of tickets remaining on

    Am I the only one that (again!!) was screaming in injury time – for the smallest, fastest player on the field (Lanzini) to go to the half-way line when that fateful corner was awarded.
    Am I totally off the wall to think that would (a) keep their keeper in goal and (b) tie up one if not 2 of their players (keeping them OUT of our box)? I just can’t see the point of enticing
    all the opposition to congest our area in such a way that our keeper (not faultless by the way) just ran into a mass. If I’m wrong about this – can Slav or someone convince me?
