  • Like My Dreams returns for Christmas 2016
  • West Ham United initiative will grant once-in-a-lifetime experiences to deserving fans
  • Takes inspiration from the lyrics of the Hammers' world-famous anthem Bubbles

West Ham United’s will make supporters’ dreams come true again this Christmas.

The 'Like My Dreams' initiative will again be granting once-in-a-lifetime experiences to a fans of all ages who deserve something special.

The festive season is traditionally one for giving and the Club wants to give worthy West Ham supporters experiences that they will never forget.

Like My Dreams takes inspiration from the lyrics of the Hammers' world-famous anthem I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles, which is sung from the heart by fans of all ages and backgrounds, illustrating why we are truly West Ham United.

How would your child like to be a coach for the day, have a kick-about with the first-team squad or be PA announcer at a Hammers home game?

Like My Dreams will give amazing experiences to fans who would benefit from some Claret and Blue Christmas cheer.


Maybe your child is bravely battling a medical condition and would benefit from the boost of a visit from a player to their hospital bedside?

Perhaps your son or daughter has overcome the odds to achieve great things in the classroom and deserves a visit to their school assembly from a West Ham star?

Alternatively, you can nominate a youngster to have their Hammers dream come true for another reason. Simply tell us why he or she deserves something special this Christmas.

Like My Dreams also offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences to adults.

Deserving fans could enjoy a behind-the-scenes visit to Rush Green, meet the manager on matchday or enjoy a training session with their friends at the training ground.

To nominate your relative or friend for a unique Like My Dreams experience, firstly tell us why they are deserving of it and, secondly, suggest an experience for them to enjoy from the following list of suggestions:
  • A first-team player to deliver a Christmas present
