Every season, West Ham United are sadly informed of the deaths of many supporters, young and old, from all over the world.
Club staff never fail to be moved when a message is received that a member of the Claret and Blue faithful has passed away.
Many of the messages received by the Club are accompanied by requests for tributes to be paid on a matchday, in the form of a minute’s applause during a first-team match.
Whilst West Ham United wholeheartedly support any such fan-led initiative, due to the sheer volume of requests, it is regrettably not possible to formally hold these tributes at every match.
The Club will now honour those Hammers no longer with us with a montage of tributes being shown on the big screens at home matches twice a season
