West Ham unveil new kit honouring last ever season at Boleyn Ground

Upton Park

The club will be moving to the Olympic Stadium after next season, and have released a new home kit honouring their 111th season at Upton Park.

West Ham United have unveiled special shirts for their final season at the Boleyn Ground next season, recognising the part it has played in the Hammers' history.

The club have recognised the affection given by supporters to the Boleyn Ground, and have produced shirts for the final home season that echo those worn in 1904, their first season at the stadium.

The shirt will also have a commemorative legend underneath a gold badge, stating ‘Boleyn Ground 1904-2016’ .

West Ham won the right to use the 2012 London Olympics stadium as their ground in 2011, after competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham and local side Leyton Orient.

It wasn't a straight forward affair, with accusations flying between all parties as each club tried to benefit from what was essentially a state of the art stadium built through no cost of the would be tenant.

And it was the Hammers, who were favourites to win the vote from the off, that were victorious.

But they will leave the Boleyn Ground for the 2016-17 campaign with a heavy heart, after spending what will have been 112 years at the famous stadium.
