West Ham United Football Club is a sports team based in London. Dean Thomas, a half-blood wizard raised in an all-Muggle home, was a fan of this club. He hung a poster of them over his bed in the Gryffindor boys' dormitory at the beginning of his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Ron Weasley, a pure-blood wizard, did not understand the appeal of football, and was once caught by Harry Potter poking Dean's poster, attempting to make the players move as pictures did in magical posters.
Behind the scenes
- This club was replaced by Liverpool Football Club in Danish version. This seems weird as the Danish version of the fifth game says West Ham, just like the English versions.
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Mentioned only) (All versions except the Danish)
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (video game) (Mentioned as West Ham)
