The Robins have allowed the Premier League giants their unusual request ahead of their FA Cup clash this weekend, though have most likely stopped short at letting them run out onto the pitch to ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’.
“It might seem strange but we want the occasion to be enjoyable and special for everyone, so why not?” a Bristol City insider said.
This is the first time the club have taken their tradition on the road.
The Hammers will leave their atmospheric Upton Park ground at the end of the season to move into the Olympic Stadium, and manager Sam Allardyce is hoping to cap off their final year there by lifting a trophy.
“We are trying to move the club forward and create a modern history the fans in the future can be proud of,” he said.
“Winning the FA Cup would be a way of doing that. With the league position we are in, we always intended to try in the Cup this time.”
