Boys of 86 Football Day

For the fifth year running, the Boys of 86 events team are offering Hammers fans the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf of Upton Park against their old heroes, as well as having the once in a lifetime opportunity to change in West Ham United's home dressing room in their seven-a-side tournament.

This year's event takes place on Friday, May 11, and will commence at 1.00pm, when all teams meet over light refreshments with tea and coffee, when Tony Cottee will run through the format for the day.

The first matches will kick off at 2.00pm and each team will be guaranteed to play at least one game against a Boys of 86 team.

Each team can have up to 11 players in their squad, although only 7 players from each team can be on the pitch at any one time with rolling substitutes. We will supply the shirts, shorts and socks for each team which you keep after the event, but players must bring their own towels, shin-pads and boots - moulded stud type only please.

After the grand final, at approximately 6.00pm, you will be able to enjoy the free bar in the Castle Suite. At 7.30pm, the presentations will be made, followed by dinner, evening entertainment, raffle and auction.

No one will be admitted to the evening function unless they are a listed player from the seven-a-side tournament or they are a guest who has pre-booked an evening ticket.

If you would like to take part as a team or an individual, please contact us now, either by email at: [email protected] or by telephone on 07783 704893.
