Football Education Days

West Ham United In The Community are offering youngsters with youth football clubs or schools the chance to experience life as a professional footballer at Upton Park thanks to their new Football Education Days.

Organised on a Saturday when the first team have an away fixture, the day is designed to give an insight into the match preparations of the senior stars at Upton Park. Also on hand is information regarding their recovery, the treatment of injuries, diet and nutrition (with meal suggestions for young players).
