Next season is a historic one for West Ham as it will be the club’s 125th anniversary and a lot of fans are reacting to a tweet from West Ham News which says that the side are looking to do something memorable with the kits to commemorate the landmark, according to EXWHUemployee.
The East London side, formerly known as Thames Ironworks FC, was created in the late 1800’s and in 1900 they changed their name to West Ham United, via footballhistory.
The club has had many historic memories throughout the years, which has included silverware in the form of three FA Cups, the Charity Shield and a Cup Winners’ Cup triumph, via Transfermarkt.
Some of the players who have come through the club will be remembered by not just the Irons fan base but by all who love the sport, including 1996 World Cup winner Bobby Moore and Sir Trevor Brooking, as per worldfootball.
It will be nice for the club to celebrate the many memories since the club began with a special kit, although some fans have been reacting to the news by joking about the club’s current situation as they are 16th in Premier League and fighting for their life in England’s top flight, via BBC Sport.
Here is what these Hammers fans had to say following the tweet:
Next season will mark the clubs 125th anniversary, and we are looking to do something special with the kits to celebrate it.
