Players from both the men’s and women’s first team are becoming ambassadors for the local community.
West Ham play their matches at the London Stadium in Stratford.
The project will be working on creating a sporting legacy and changing lives in the community.
The project is a commitment in creating opportunities.
The only Premier League team in East London, West Ham United, are launching a new player project, which they feel will benefit the community and that is ‘important to the club’. The club is already one of 800 nationwide that are part of the Kicks Project and recently hosted a session at the London Stadium.
Marko Arnautovic, together with Jack Wilshere and women’s team stars Esmee De Graaf and Lucienne Reichardt, participated in the inaugural session. Additionally, former club captain Mark Nolan has praised the club and it’s ideas on Twitter.
The Club’s Austrian forward Marko Arnautovic has said about the project “When I see the kids training hard and how they look up to us, it makes me feel happy and I just want to give advice to everyone to go the right way and to do that is important”.
