West Ham have announced a new sponsorship deal with betting firm Betway.  This follows the demise of our previous sponsor Alpari, who crashed due to a currency crisis in the Eurozone.  Betway will see their logo emblazoned on our shirts and training gear, and will take over the naming rights of the stand previously known as the 'Alpari Stand'.  The deal is said to be the biggest in the club's history.  Certainky the timing would have worked well for the Hammers, flying high in the top half of the table with a Cup run on the horizon, now that the Senegal debacle is over.

Betway's Executive Director Bob Dutnall said: "West Ham United are a club with a rich history and passionate supporters and we're thrilled to have secured this sponsorship at a time when the team are performing so well.

"The Barclays Premier League is the world's most popular football competition and the sport is synonymous with excitement and betting, making it a perfect fit for our growing brand.

"We are looking forward to supporting the Hammers on the pitch and rewarding their fans off it with innovative Betway offers and special markets."

    now that i purchased a shirt this season i find the sponsors on my shirt are no longer with the club. do we get to change our shirt or are west ham not going to honour this

    John Gale, are you an idiot? rhetorical question, because yes you are. The shirt is a replica, and was indeed a replica of the current shirt at the time of your purchase no doubt. To this end, you are a moron.
    can i exchange my shirt from last year?

    Why would anyone want to wear the shirt with the ridiculous BetWay logo ironed on the front, absolutely hideous!
