Take your place among the Founders

Over the decades, many legendary figures have played their part in creating West Ham United's famous history and laying the foundations of the Club’s future.
Ted Fenton and Malcolm Allison revolutionised youth development by founding the famous Academy of Football; Ron Greenwood and John Lyall showed that the 'West Ham Way' could deliver trophies; and east London’s favourite son, Bobby Moore, graced the Boleyn Ground pitch for sixteen years and brought glory to Club and country.
When another such figure – Sir Geoff Hurst – was asked what his friend and team-mate Bobby Moore would think about the Club’s magnificent new Stadium, he was in no doubt:
"Mooro would love this. He wanted to play in the biggest stadiums…and he'd have loved to see the Club moving forward like this.”
As West Ham takes that step forward to our stunning new home, every Hammers fan who makes the journey with the Club will be following in the footsteps of those legends and helping to lay the foundations for West Ham's exciting future.
Each supporter who holds a Season Ticket for the big kick-off in 2016 will therefore officially be recognised and celebrated by the Club as a Founder of West Ham’s new Stadium.
Every Founder will receive a commemorative pin badge, as well as their Founding status being displayed, pride of place, at our new home. The artist’s impression above shows how this could look on the walls of the players’ tunnel.
The Club also wants to ensure the Founders can take their place in history alongside the fellow Hammers fans who mean the most to them.
So West Ham are giving each current Season Ticket Holder the chance to bring two friends or family members with them to the Stadium as new Season Ticket Holders. They will be able to select their seats together, and ensure their names are immortalised side by side at the Club’s new home.
If you are an existing Season Ticket Holder, you should already have received an email from the New Stadium Reservation Centre, explaining the process for renewing your Season Tickets and selecting your seats for the 2016/17 season, with personal login details to manage your appointment.
You can login now to reservations.whufc.com, and add your two fellow Hammers fans to your appointment, who can then join you at the Reservation Centre to select your seats, using the Club’s state-of-the-art virtual venue technology. Click here to download a helpful Online User Guide.
Demand for Season Tickets in the new Stadium is running extremely high and the first Founders have already started selecting their seats at the Reservation Centre. However, it is not too late for you to join them and secure your own status as a Founder.
A Season Ticket remains the cheapest way to watch West Ham at home, and – with prices at the new Stadium starting from £289 for adults plus £99 for all under-16s – that will be truer than ever for the 2016-17 season. A Season Ticket is also the only way to guarantee your seat for the biggest games, and secure priority status for cup finals.
For supporters who don’t currently have a Season Ticket but wish to become Founders, you can join the New Stadium Priority List. Book your place in history today by visiting reservations.whufc.com
