The Story

Hammers Chat was formed on the 11th of November 2014 on a third party hosted website as a forum in order to keep an existing and diminishing online community together. Hammers Chat entered the world of twitter in May 2015 in order to seek new members for the forum and in August, formed a YouTube channel after it was suggested by a non West Ham United fan.

In the summer of 2016 Hammers Chat moved to this website with their their custom URL and forum as well as launching their mobile phone app’s on iOS and Android, which are free to download and contains no ads, as well as their match day events ‘Moored’ which are boats on a private jetty just two minutes from the London Stadium.

During the season, Geo and Gonzo, represented Hammers Chat at meetings with West Ham United which included Vice-chair, Karren Brady, in order to help improve fans match day experiences, a year after working with the club on video and programme content for the clubs official channels.

In the summer of 2017 the forum YouTube channel was launched in order to allow members of Hammers Chat to submit their thoughts as a short video, without any editing expertise and using just a mobile phone.

In early 2018, Hammers Chat released their first podcast on iTunes as well as hitting over 2 million views on our primary YouTube channel, over 4 million impressions on twitter for the last 28 days and The future? Unsure, but feel free to join us on the journey, for free.
