A message from West Ham United to all supporters

West Ham fans


 
As we look forward to Sunday's Premier League derby with Tottenham Hotspur, the Club would like to reiterate its thanks to our supporters for your continued magnificent backing.

The support has been amazing. 

This weekend is another opportunity to continue to show the passion and pride that makes our fans famous around the world, and to illustrate the effect your positive backing can have on the team throughout each match.

Everyone at the Club recognises that each and every supporter is an ambassador for West Ham United. 

West Ham United is an inclusive football club. Regardless of age, race, disability, religion, gender or sexual orientation, every supporter within our diverse fanbase should be free to enjoy watching their team play football without fear, discrimination or abuse. And we remain committed to ensuring that everyone inside stadiums feels safe, respected and included.

So let us demonstrate together that there is simply no place in football for abuse, discrimination or bigotry of any form, and ensure that football – and hopefully some more great results for the Hammers - are what people are talking about in the days following the games.

 

West Ham fans

 

This Sunday, we will be supporting No Room For Racism, the Premier League’s dedicated campaign urging fans up and down the country to challenge and report discriminatory behaviour wherever they see it.

As we know, the encounter against our London rivals Tottenham Hotspur is a unique and special date in the fixture calendar. Emotions run high, the atmosphere in the stadium is intense, and players have the chance to create memories that are never forgotten.

We can all play our part in supporting the effort to eradicate discrimination by ensuring that we report any incidents. If you happen to see or hear anything on Sunday, or at any other fixture at London Stadium, that you consider unacceptable, it is important that you report anything of this nature to the relevant authorities as soon as possible to ensure it is investigated fully.

In the first instance, you may choose to speak to the nearest steward, supporter liaison officer, or police officer. Alternatively, you can report any unacceptable behaviour by texting 07860 404069. All messages are received directly to the Control Room and enable us to monitor and take action at the time. All information provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

Everyone at West Ham United is very much looking forward to the next run of fixtures and the Claret and Blue Army showing the world what being a football fan is all about – supporting with pride, passion and respect.

Come on you Irons!
