Betway celebrate renewal by reuniting fans and players in emotional video

Sir Trevor Brooking sits down in a darkened room. So does club captain Mark Noble and his teammates Aaron Cresswell, Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass.

All they know is that they’re about to come face to face with a lifelong West Ham supporter.

But there’s a twist: each player has met their respective fan before while starring in one of the many content pieces Betway have produced with West Ham since becoming the club’s sponsor in 2015.

That raises two fascinating questions: does the player remember them? And, if so, what impact did that interaction have on the supporter’s life?

You’ll have to watch the video, which was created to celebrate Betway’s renewal of our sponsorship with West Ham.


MATT met Sir Trevor Brooking in 2015 when the Hammers’ legend handed out new home shirts at a supporters’ club near the Boleyn Ground for Betway’s #PrideInYourShirt campaign in 2015.


WILL met skipper Mark Noble in 2016 when starring in the Sky Sports’ Betway Academy, a six-part series where a West Ham fan team received professional coaching from the club before playing in one of the last ever matches at the Boleyn Ground.


STEVO THE MAD MAN met Michail Antonio for the first time in 2017 when the Snapchat and Instagram sensation starred alongside the winger in Betway’s hilarious Gogglebox-inspired West Ham season review.


NATHAN met Aaron Cresswell in 2017 when the two were paired together in Betway’s Supermarket Sweep, a laugh-out-loud gameshow that was hosted by Stevo The Madman.


JOSH met Robert Snodgrass in 2018 when he inadvertently starred in Betway’s Fan Taxi comedy prank. Josh thought he had won a Betway Twitter competition to have a tour of West Ham’s training ground. What he didn’t know was that his taxi driver, ‘Archie’, was actually Snodgrass – his favourite player – in disguise!
