Ocean-Holidays, South Street, Romford, which employs more than 150 people, is run by two sets of brothers, Romford-born Daniel and David Ox, and Harry and George Hastings from London.

The company’s travel experts will assist the club in ensuring all travel arrangements are made for their away games.

The deal comes as the club has moved into the Olympic Stadium.

Co-chief executive Daniel Ox said: “We are thrilled to be supporting West Ham, our local premiership team, at this incredibly exciting time as they move into the London 2012 Olympic stadium.”

West Ham United’s vice-chairman Baroness Karren Brady CBE said: “At a time when the Club is expanding its global footprint, it is all the more important that we remain true to our roots.

“I am therefore delighted to be joining forces with a prominent local business, while continuing to grow the Club’s international reach.

“On behalf of all at West Ham United, I would like to welcome Ocean Holidays on board and I hope this is the start of a very successful relationship.”

The partnership also means Ocean Holidays will be offering exclusive travel deals to supporters, players and staff across social media channels, via the West Ham website, the match-day programme and the Ocean Florida website.
