Alpari to sponsor Gala Dinner

West Ham United are delighted to announce that Alpari (UK) will be the prestigious main sponsor for the club's End of Season Gala Dinner on 16 May 2011.

The award-winning foreign exchange and precious metals broker has a proud association with the club and will be well represented at the glittering evening ceremony to be staged at the Grosvenor House on London's Park Lane.

Alpari (UK) will also present the Best Team Performance award at the event. More than 800 guests are expected, including Hammers stars past and present. 

Andrey Vedikhin, CEO of Alpari (UK), said: "We are proud to be the main sponsor of the West Ham United gala dinner. It is a great opportunity for Alpari (UK) to be associated with a football club so well respected and steeped in tradition. We look forward to celebrating with the winners of the awards on the night."

David Stuart, COO of Alpari (UK), added: "West Ham United is a club with a long history and track record. The gala dinner is a great occasion to celebrate the club's highest achievers and we are proud to support the event this year."

The entire first-team squad - as well as some famous names - will be in attendance for this glittering event which will be highlighted by the crowning of the 2010/11 Hammer of the Year.
