As well as competing in the Premier League, West Ham United took part in the FA Cup and League Cup, entering at the third round in both competitions. As a result of topping the fair play table last season, the club also qualified for this season's UEFA Europa League competition.[1]

Slaven Bilić was the team's manager, replacing Sam Allardyce. Bilić was appointed on 9 June on a three-year contract. After Kevin Nolan left West Ham on 27 August 2015, Mark Noble was the current captain. It was their last season playing at the Boleyn Ground before moving to the Olympic Stadium for the start of the 2016–17 season. The Boleyn Ground was sold to the Galliard group in 2014.[2][3] A new commemorative, first-team kit was introduced for the season inspired by the kit worn for West Ham's first season at the Boleyn Ground, the 1904–05 season.[4][5]

West Ham finished the season in 7th place with 62 points, a record number for the team in the Premier League.[6][7] Their top scorer was Dimitri Payet with 12 goals in all competitions.[8]
