West Ham United Women are delighted to announce that local girls’ football club Nutmeg East London FC have become an official Sister Club partner of the team.
The scheme will see young players at the Hackney-based club receive tickets for West Ham women’s home matches at the Chigwell Construction Stadium, as well as benefiting from player appearances, coaching sessions and more.
Nutmeg East London FC is a grassroots club based in Drapers Field, Leyton, and are the fifth team to join our Sister Club scheme.
Since 2019, they have been offering football sessions for all girls aged 4 to 12 and in the same year they became an official FA Wildcats centre.
The whole ethos of Nutmeg is based around the idea of players feeling safe to explore the game, make mistakes and enjoy the process of learning.
West Ham United Women are currently looking to support the development of women’s and girls’ football in East London and Essex, as pledged in our #GetOnside campaign with Women in Football!
We are hoping that this alliance will help with the development of local players, providing opportunities to young players, as well as growing our existing fanbase by offering free and discounted tickets to our partner clubs.
Dawid Juzaszek, Head Coach at Nutmeg East London said:
“The Sister club partnership has been enthusiastically welcomed by our players and parents, building connection with West Ham will definitely motivate our players and coaches further to continue with their fantastic work.”
