West Ham chairman David Gold has confirmed The Hammers topped the premier league fair play table beating both Liverpool and Everton to win an Europa league place.
West Ham’s joint-chairmen, David Sullivan and David Gold, said in a statement: “We are delighted to have won a place in the Uefa Europa League as we want to ensure the Boleyn Ground the best send-off possible, and progress in this competition will certainly help with that. Starting in early July will bring its challenges but everyone at the club, from the board to the players and supporters, will be relishing the opportunity to feature on the European stage. It should be a fantastic experience.”
West Ham will find out their opponents when the draw is made for the first and second qualifying rounds on 22 June.
