Hammers all set for Austria


West Ham are all set to play SCR Altach in their first pre-season friendly at the CASHPOINT Arena, Altach in Austria tomorrow afternoon with kick-off at 4.30pm UK time.

The stadium holds 8,500 supporters but a few hundred West Ham supporters are thought to have paid £17 each to witness the first pre-season game.

West Ham are without Pablo Fornals, Fabian Balbuena and Arthur Maskuku all of which remain on holiday but Pellegrini is likely to create two teams of eleven for the first and second halves to give twenty-two of the thirty-two players out in Switerzland a run-out.  The game is not being televised by any UK TV companies.

Although there has been no official confirmation West Ham are likely to stream the match live on social media as they did last summer. This is always subject to the Internet infrastructure being available and stable at the away stadium so we are won’t know until the last minute whether we can watch it or not.
