West Ham United Football Club of Stratford, East London have now been at their new home the London Stadium for 7 years, having moved from the iconic Boleyn Ground in 2016. Their history goes back as far as 1895 when they were founded as Thames Ironworks, and is largely the source of the football team's nickname – The Hammers. Making their debut to England's footballing top flight in 1923, they were also FA Cup finalists for the first time in that same year. West Ham United is also noted for winning the inaugural Football League War Cup in 1940. West Ham have been finalists of the FA Cup 5 times, 3 times coming out as winners, while also winning the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1965 as well as the Intertoto Cup in 1999. West Ham holds the distinction of never falling below the second tier of English football, an honour it shares with only 7 other clubs.
While finding success in the cups, West Ham have never won the English top flight, and have only ever achieved a third place finish at best in their history, but with three of England's finest players in the World Cup winning side of 1966, fans of West Ham United will definitely proclaim that their team brought the World Cup home to England loudly and proudly!
