West Ham United supporters are to be thanked by Barclays for the dedicated support they show to their club and the Barclays Premier League at the home match against Manchester United on Saturday 22nd March.

A special 'Thank You Squad' will be challenging fans to demonstrate their loyalty and passion at Upton Park and thanking them with a number of rewards. It is part of a Barclays effort to thank football fans across the UK for supporting their clubs through thick and thin.

Among the acts of dedication the Thank You Squad will be looking out for those fans who get to the ground early to start building the pre-game atmosphere, those who dress up or wear face paint in tribute to their club, those who sing the loudest and generally those fans giving their club unstinting support.

A Barclays spokesperson said: "West Ham United fans follow their club with dedication and passion. They deserve to have their stories celebrated and rewarded for the efforts they make to follow their club through all the ups and down that the season brings. The fans help to make the Barclays Premier League what it is today."

"Our Thank You Squad will be seeking out the most passionate fans at West Ham United v Manchester United this weekend and rewarding them for their support."
