West Ham United has today announced that the women’s team will play their Barclay’s FA Women's Super League home matches at Dagenham & Redbridge’s Chigwell Construction Stadium throughout the 2020/21 season.
 
Located less than ten minutes away from where the Hammers’ previously played home matches at the Club’s Rush Green training ground, the move will provide a fantastic home for the ever-growing band of loyal supporters that back Matt Beard’s side.
 
The announcement comes hot on the heels of new player signings and the unveiling of the state-of-the-art training base at Chadwell Heath, with the pivotal move coming as part of the Club’s continued commitment to providing an environment of excellence for current and future generations of women’s players.
 
Following last season’s record-breaking first Barclays FA WSL match played at London Stadium, combined with continued unwavering support from fans and huge growth in home attendances, the Club is now looking to build on this success for next season. The move will enable attendances to increase further and present even more supporters with the exciting opportunity to watch the Hammers squad, which is filled with internationals from across the world. 

 

 

After listening to feedback from women’s season ticket holders, the Hammers have ensured that the new home boasts excellent facilities, with more food and drink options, better transport links, access to over 2,000 seats, as well as a significant increase in accessible seating.
 
The Chigwell Construction Stadium site on Victoria Road has been a football ground since 1917, when it was used by Sterling Athletic, the works team of the adjacent Sterling Telegraph and Electric Company factory. More recently, it has been the home of Dagenham & Redbridge, with new facilities and stands being built, with it also being the home to various fixtures for West Ham United’s Under-23s team.

“Looking forward to the season ahead, I can’t wait to see the local community getting behind the team and turning out in full force to support fill the stands in our new home!
 
“The demand to see women’s football has never been greater and our new matchday home will allow even more of our loyal fans to watch our games live, as well as enjoy an even better matchday experience at this impressive stadium. As we strive to become a leading team on the pitch, our continued progress will help our West Ham United women’s team to be a leading figure off the pitch.”
