IRON MEN: The Beginning Of A New Era For West Ham

Published on:

West Ham fans have released a trailer of their upcoming documentary, Iron Men, which signifies the historic move to the London Stadium.

It will be released on the digital HD from 3rd March and on DVD from 6th March. After spending 112 years at Upton Park, the Hammers moved to the 60,000 capacity London Stadium in Stratford in the summer of 2016.

It took a long tussle with Tottenham Hotspur to win the rights of the stadium which hosted the 2012 London Olympics.

The documentary features the transition of change and relevance of a momentous new era through behind the scenes.

The fans weren’t quite happy being removed from their spiritual home but adapted to the new turf sooner than expected.

Club captain Mark Noble, manager Slaven Bilic and owners David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady all feature in the film.

It also documents the stories of various West Ham fans including 100 year old Mabel Arnold who watched her club play at Upton Park during the second World War.

She is starred alongside Hollywood actor Ray Winstone and also witnessed West Ham’s 3-2 emotional farewell win over Manchester United.

The Hammers have finally settled in their new home after facing teething problems both on and off the pitch.

Mark Noble on staying united: “We just need the fans to stick with us like they have done this year (2015/16) and let’s move on together.”
