About the SAB

Supporters

 

Established in May 2011, the Supporter Advisory Board (SAB) was set up by the Club as a constructive forum for supporters to discuss and put forward the key subject matters that are closest to our fanbase with the West Ham United Board.

 

Aims and objectives:

  • To provide the broadest representation possible of the West Ham United fanbase, representing key groups within the fanbase rather than individuals.
  • To have a base that ensures the best possible representation of our supporters from both geo / demographic perspectives.
  • To create a constructive forum for supporters to discuss and put forward key subject matters affecting our fanbase with the West Ham United Board.
  • To initiate and continue a direct, open and two-way communication between the Club and supporters. 
  • To allow the Club to provide clarity and context on any key decisions that are made. 
  • To enable fans to play a key role in improving the supporter experience and shaping the future of West Ham United.

 

Mission:

Working together to develop and maintain a positive relationship and the best supporter experience for all West Ham United fans.
 

 

 

Who is on the Supporter Advisory Board committee?

The SAB is the primary link between supporters and the Club, with many of its members representing larger fan groups, including disabled supporters, independent supporter groups and Supporters’ Clubs.

  • Youth (under 25)
  • Senior (over 65)
