West Ham documentary coming soon

Away From Home – Leaving Upton Park – A Feature Length Documentary will be released on 30th March by East 15 films.

On May 10th 2016, after 112 years of calling The Boleyn Ground home, West Ham United played their final match in the iconic stadium before moving across the East End to the London Stadium.

Filmed over the last season at the Boleyn Ground and the first two seasons at The London Stadium, Away From Home puts the West Ham fans at the forefront of this monumental move.

The rollercoaster of emotions they have experienced during the last few seasons, their hopes and fears for the future and ultimately what West Ham United means to them through memories, rituals and relationships as well as community, identity and class connotations and a sense of belonging.

In the aftermath of the move, Away From Home returns to Upton Park to illustrate the devastating impact on local businesses that relied heavily on the match day revenue and also explores the proposed legacy of what once was West Ham’s home.

  1. The London stadium is a different experience. Is it better is it worse – that’s down to personal subjectivity. Why are you sorry for the kids not growing up like you did. its been 40+ years on since you where young the world has changed and you got to change with it or you face extinction.

    I think the only thing we can be sorry is that the kids-the clubs supporters from tomorrow have to grow up with seeing riot in our stadium rallying against a relegation battling not sure if thats the spirit. Certainly not the west ham way.

    P.S.: People who shout I want my WestHam back, got to realise they never owned it. They may own a jersey, which they probably bought which in fact makes them a commercial , corporate supporter in the first place. Rant over.

  2. Riot. What riot? I must have blinked cos I missed that. So many drama queens commenting with exaggerated over the top remarks, doesn’t help matters at all. Comment, criticise condemn, whatever, but don’t over exaggerate please.
