All Season Ticket holders who have signed up for the 2012/13 campaign by 5pm on Friday 17 August will be entered into the prize draw to win the shirt worn by Mali forward Maiga on the day he signed for the Hammers.

The winner will be announced during the opening home game of the season against Aston Villa, and manager Sam Allardyce is hoping for an electric atmosphere on Saturday 18 August - a fixture that could see Maiga and his fellow summer arrivals make their competitive debuts at the Boleyn Ground.

"Our first game is at home against Aston Villa, and what better way to start than to be at the Boleyn Ground with our magnificent supporters out in force as we begin what is a new journey for the club," said Big Sam.

"It won't be easy but we want to make a solid start to give us a platform to take us forward. That is what we are working on with the players in pre-season and we will do all we can to make that possible."

Big Sam also revealed that he and the club are working hard behind the scenes to add to the squad before the end of the transfer window.

"We are working hard to bring in new additions to the squad. We have already brought in Mohamed Diame, Jussi Jaaskelainen, Modibo Maiga and James Collins, as well as securing permanent deals for George McCartney and Stephen Henderson.

"We are continuing our work to strengthen the squad, to add numbers, and to make sure we are capable of sustaining ourselves in the Barclays Premier League."

The Hammers finalise their pre-season preparations on Friday night at UEFA Champions League qualifiers SC Braga in Portugal and the manager hopes that, come 18 August, the team can reward the fans for their tremendous support and dedication.

"Your support is vital to us, we need it in every game especially at home. Last season your support helped kick us on when we needed it and we need it once more as we aim to make our mark in the top league.

"We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Saturday 18 August as you continue to give your superb backing to the team, and we hope to give you something back on the pitch.

"After the glow of promotion we are now focussed, we are back in the Premier League, and we are prepared to take on whatever the season throws at us."
