Gold was answering a question put to him on Twitter regarding the club's plans for pre-season, and although he stopped short in saying that the Premier League team had anything in place for the summer, he suggested that playing friendly matches on the other side of the pond was a realistic possibility.
I would love us to tour in the USA. It could happen some time in the future. dg https://t.co/0kJBXQWpMB— David Gold (@davidgold) February 17, 2016
Due to their participation in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, West Ham spent the majority of their most recent pre-season in the United Kingdom but depending on where they finish in the Premier League in May, they go play games further afield later this year.
Ahead of their switch to the Olympic Stadium next season, Gold and co-chairman David Sullivan are looking to increase the profile of the club and over the coming seasons, that could include basing a training camp abroad in a different continent.
West Ham currently sit in seventh position in England's top flight, just one point adrift of fifth-place Manchester United.
