West Ham United fans are in for another treat tonight, completing the perfect hat-trick.
Football is shut down for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Premier League will not resume until April 30th at the earliest meaning West Ham’s intense battle against relegation is on hold.
Growing uncertainty over football season
There is growing uncertainty over when – and even if – the season will resume.
West Ham fans are in the same boat as everyone else and will have to wait until it is safe and sensible for the action to get back under way.
It has made for a dearth in entertainment for bored West Ham fans.
West Ham complete perfect hat-trick for fans
But West Ham are set to complete a perfect hat-trick of treats for supporters tonight by live streaming the thrilling Premier League classic 5-4 win over Bradford City.
West Ham have already showed the historic 3-2 Farewell Boleyn victory over Manchester United as part of ‘Throwback Thursday’.
The club also ran a full replay of Mark Noble’s memorable testimonial event. Both games are still available on the club’s YouTube channel and have been viewed over 100,000 times and counting.
Now West Ham fans get to watch one of the most dramatic matches in modern West Ham history from 6pm tonight.
Hammers help supporters beat lockdown boredom
“Enjoy every minute of the Hammers’ thrilling 5-4 victory over Bradford City from February 2000 all over again,” West Ham announced on the club’s official site.
“We’ll be screening the match in full from 6pm on Thursday, allowing you to experience the ups-and-downs of a crazy Boleyn Ground afternoon all over again.”
West Ham came from 4-2 down to win a breathtaking match 5-4 against the Bantams on a sunny day at Upton Park.
Paolo Di Canio and academy graduates Joe Cole and Frank Lampard inspired a dramatic late comeback.
It was the match made famous by Di Canio sitting on the turf and asking to be substituted after being denied at least three clear penalties by the referee.
The fiery Italian then wrestled the ball from Lampard to take and score a crucial penalty.
