Founders

Make your mark in history

Join the original Thames Ironworks as Founders at the new Stadium

It's time to make your mark in West Ham United history.
 
The Club are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime to the new Stadium on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and you can take that step with us.
 
Thames Ironworks FC were the original Founders of West Ham United as we know it today back in 1895 - so now it's your turn to stand side-by-side with them as a Founder yourself.
 
The football club was formed by Thames Ironworks Managing Director Arnold Hills and foreman Dave Taylor 120 years ago.
 
Fifty would be players paid half a crown for a year's membership, with Taylor spending that summer arranging the fixtures.
 
The Club would go on to lift the Southern League Division Two championship before becoming West Ham United in 1900 and evolving into the Hammers we now know.
 
The players back then were the original Founders and as a Season Ticket Holders at the new Stadium you are more than a supporter, you are a Founder of our new home.
 
You can give two fellow Hammers fans priority to join you as NEW Season Ticket Holders in our new Stadium.
