Bilic - I had to come back

Join Slaven Bilic in returning to the Club you love

After 18 years away, Slaven Bilic could not resist the lure of a Club close to his heart when West Ham United came calling in the summer.

Having spent a year at the Boleyn Ground as a player, the Claret & Blue never left Bilic and, as he explains in our It’s Time to Come Back video, he was honoured to be given the chance to manage the Hammers as they build to the new Stadium.

It’s your turn to come back too – watch the video below

The manager said: “I always followed West Ham wherever I was. Once you play for West Ham, or once you are connected with West Ham, it stays with you for life.

“I missed it during my time away from this Club because it is a special Club, a cult Club, but what really makes West Ham special is the fans.”

Since launching the video, many lapsed Season Ticket Holders have decided to follow the manager’s lead and return to the Club they love – securing their place on the Priority List among 25,000 Hammers fans for Season Tickets at our new home.

For anyone without a Season Ticket for the final season at the Boleyn Ground, this is the only way to guarantee priority when it comes to 2016/17 Season Tickets.    

Sign up today with a £10 deposit to join. The deposit is non-refundable but will be redeemed against the purchase of a 2016/17 Season Ticket.
