The operators of the Olympic Stadium have confirmed that they have teamed up with local charity Isla's Fight for the 2018/19 season.

Isla Caton, who hails from a family of dedicated West Ham supporters was diagnosed with child cancer Neuroblastoma in 2017.

Since then, a dedicated team of volunteers have been raising funds to support a planned trip to America in order to receive treatment that is unobtainable in the UK.

And their campaign received a considerable boost today following the news that they will enjoy the support of the Stadium operators for the duration of the 2018/19 season.

"London Stadium are proud to announce that Isla's Fight will be our nominated charitable partner for all West Ham matchdays this season," read a post on the company's timeline.

"Keep an eye out for collections and more on Stadium Island starting from Saturday's fixture against AFC Bournemouth. We are all #TeamIsla"
