Nachricht von den neuen Eigentümern

Dear Rapidhammer,

It gives us great pleasure to introduce ourselves to you as the new joint chairmen of West Ham United football club.

This is an important move for us. We are both lifelong West Ham fans and for 20 years, this is the club we wanted. The club is now back in the hands of East Enders, people who understand the community and its passion for the Hammers.

It will be an immense privilege to lead this great club and more importantly its supporters. It’s been a difficult period for the club and it will take time to turn things round. But that’s what we will do and we can’t wait to get on with it.

David Gold and David Sullivan

Our first priority has to be securing the Premier League status of West Ham. The players at this club have shown great commitment in trying circumstances and the new board will get behind them in every way.

We will also look to bring in new players to supplement the squad and have discussed this with the manager.

Our long-term aim will be to put the club on a stronger financial footing. With our new board we have the expertise and experience to do that and put this club where it belongs – challenging for the top honours and representing the heart and soul of its community.

We want to put the smiles back on people’s faces. For the many thousands of loyal fans that come to the Boleyn Ground, whether they are in the stands or the corporate boxes, we want them to enjoy the best possible experience and real value for money.

And we want to take that experience to a new level. We are exploring the prospect of using the 2012 Olympics Stadium once the Games have finished. This would be a fantastic home for our club, a real showpiece stadium we can all be proud of. With a sizeable capacity it would also enable more people to watch top quality football at affordable prices – putting the game back into the community.

This club has enormous potential and it’s a dream come true for us to be taking it forward. It’s the start of a new adventure and we want you to share it with us.

Thank you for your support.
