Back in 2019, the group collaborated with the club on their ‘Die With Your Boots On’ home shirt range. Now, the two have collaborated again this time on a new away shirt, a training jacket and more training wear.
“With thousands of home shirts sold, there was huge appetite from West Ham & Steve to extend the range for fans around the world to enjoy in both football and music,” a statement about the collaboration read.

The group’s Steve Harris has been a fan of the football club since 1965 and his bass guitar features an image of the club’s iconic logo.
Speaking about the collaboration, Harris said: “It was incredible to see the number of Iron Maiden & West Ham fans that picked up the initial home shirt.
“With West Ham doing so well in the Premier League right now, it feels like a nice time to put out this ‘away’ shirt.
“I’m so happy to carry the Maiden/West Ham partnership further… who knows, it might bring us luck for a Champions league place, you never know! COYI!”
Tracey Stratton, Licensing Manager at West Ham added: “We’ve had a phenomenal response to our first shirt collaboration with Iron Maiden, selling out repeat orders several times. The fans’ reactions were amazing with huge engagement on social media.
“We are now excited to release the ‘away’ shirt as a first run exclusive online at www.officialwesthamstore.com, with further styles to follow as we continue this highly successful partnership. Come on you Irons!!”
The metal legends’ manager Rod Smallwood said in a statement: “Naturally the band are hugely disappointed; a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take.
“They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same. As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise! Until then keep safe and keep smart.”
