Following the success of last season's schools initiative, West Ham United are proud to announce the launch of our new and exciting "Football For All" 2012 programme.
The Board's ultimate priority for the programme is to help make football more affordable and accessible to young people in Essex and east London - part of our Investing in Future strategy designed to reward local schools for their fantastic support in attending key home games for West Ham United.
The club is keen to set up strong partnerships with participating local education establishments, with many fantastic money-can't-buy-benefits up for grabs - aside from being able to cheer the likes of Kevin Nolan and his teammates up close and personal at the remaining home npower Championship league games this season - for everyone taking part.
The Football for All 2012 programme provides pupils accessibly priced, £5 tickets for any matchday ticket this season via their school, and with supervising teachers/guardians able to attend free of charge.
What's more, West Ham United is offering a free introductory coaching session to every school that registers their interest in our Football For All 2012 programme as well as receiving fantastic opportunities such as an invitation to watch the first-team train, hundreds of pounds worth of equipment and a guaranteed first-team player visit to your school.
It is not just schools who can take part either, with local youth sport teams also able to get in on the action.
