London based football team, known as 'The Hammers'. Originally called the Thames Ironworks FC (hence their nickname), they adopted the current name in 1900 and moved to the existing location in Upton Park, (known as the 'Boleyn Ground') in 1904. They are one of the main contenders for taking over the 2012 Olympics Stadium as their home ground.
