Irons to play last pre-season friendly season AWAY!

By Sean Whetstone

West Ham will not have a pre-season friendly match at home at the London Stadium this July.

Instead, they will stage an away game abroad in their last pre-season fixture to be announced.  The official announcement together with the opposition will be announced at 8.30 am on WHUFC.com.

Traditionally this fixture is the Betway Cup competition but that will not be the case this summer.

Sources close to the club insist the decision not to stage a game at the London Stadium is more to do with the cost of living crisis than the stadium being ready on time.
