The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to the news coming out of their club this morning that they’ve signed a contract extension with Global Image Sports Inc (GIS). The extended contract with GIS will see the continued promotion and development of West Ham’s overseas programme in North America. Fans can read more about the deal on the West Ham website.

The Hammers look set to achieve safety in the premier league this season, despite suffering a scare in March where they lost three consecutive games by a three-goal margin. For the club, keeping their Premier League status is key as they aim to continue overseas projects like this one with GIS and need the level of funding that being a Premier League club provides to do this.
West Ham’s partnership with GIS has seen the development of North American soccer, there are currently over 35 West Ham North American Academy youth soccer partners made up of tens of thousands of young players.Whilst the fans will be delighted with the news, they’ll also be keeping one eye on their club closer to home, the Irons have become increasingly frustrated with their board, who they want to see let manager David Moyes go at the end of the season.

That's great news. Defo renewing my season ticket for next season in the light of that news.
