West Ham announce fans support for crest change

West Ham United have announced the overwhelming support of fans to alter the club's crest.

West Ham said in a club statement:

"West Ham United supporters have overwhelmingly endorsed the idea of evolving the Club's crest.

"Seventy-seven per cent of the thousands of fans that participated in an independent SMG YouGov survey said they backed updating the crest to reflect the Club's history and heritage in a new era.

"After a detailed video about the history of the Club's crest, supporters were asked to state which elements of the existing crest they considered most important. Unsurprisingly, a massive 98 per cent confirmed that the crossed hammers were paramount, while the Boleyn Castle was judged the least significant."
