Description:
Upton Park is an urban area of the London Borough of Newham,centred around the local high street, Green Street. The area is synonymous with football and is home to West Ham United Football Club, who play at the Boleyn Ground, commonly known as Upton Park, while nearby is a green space also called Upton Park.

Football

The area is synonymous with football, as the southern end of Green Street runs alongside western edge of the Boleyn Ground, the home stadium of West Ham United which first opened in 1904. The club initially rented the land from Green Street House, known locally as Boleyn Castle because of its imposing nature and an association with Anne Boleyn. The football stadium has long since been commonly known as 'Upton Park'.

An unrelated football club of the area, Upton Park FC, were early pioneers in the game, and represented Great Britain at the 1900 Summer Olympics football tournament, where they won the gold medal. They played their home games in West Ham Park.

Upton Park F.C was founded in 1866, and is believed to have folded for the second and last time around 1911, while West Ham United, an unrelated organisation, were founded as Thames Ironworks F.C. in 1895, before reforming as West Ham in 1900, playing their first games at Upton Park, the Boleyn Ground, from 1904.

Transport

On the London Underground subway network, the southern area near the Boleyn Ground is served by Upton Park tube station on Green Street on the District and Hammersmith and City lines.
