Hammers pay tribute to Bobby Moore at London Stadium
West Ham United will mark the 25th anniversary of the passing of Bobby Moore OBE at Saturday’s Premier League fixture with Burnley.
A series of exhibitions and events will pay tribute to the Club’s greatest-ever player and captain, who died after a dignified battle with bowel cancer in February 1993, aged just 51.
A free exhibition of memorabilia relating to Moore’s life and career on the lower ground floor of the Stadium Store, where visitors can view shirts, medals and many more unique and historic items, will be open from 9am. The exhibition is also open from 9.30am-5pm on Thursday and Friday and 11am-5pm on Sunday.
Four new Bobby Moore displays have been installed on the London Stadium concourse – the latest initiative introduced to improve the matchday experience for West Ham fans visiting our home on matchdays.
We advise supporters to get to their seats early, as a few minutes before-kick off, members of the 1964 FA Cup and 1965 European Cup Winners’ Cup-winning teams captained by Moore – Ken Brown, Ronnie Boyce, Jack Burkett, Brian Dear and Eddie Bovington – will be welcomed pitchside for the pre-match ceremony.
After the two teams have taken to the pitch, they will line up around the centre circle while a floral tribute will be laid on the centre spot.
A minute’s applause will then be held, during which supporters in the East Stand will be invited to create a mosaic in tribute to Moore.
In a further recognition of the Club’s proud heritage, for the first time, flagbearers will display the 16 crests used by Thames Ironworks FC and West Ham United during the Club’s 123-year history pitchside on Saturday. In addition, these crests will be displayed in the stadium concourse.
