West Ham will travel to Wembley for their Carabao Cup fourth-round tie against Spurs on Wednesday 25 October, with kick-off at 8pm. The Hammers were drawn against their north London rivals for the last-16 tie after they defeated Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham saw off Barnsley in midweek.
The fourth round tie will see West Ham head to Wembley for the first time since their Championship Play-Off final victory against Blackpool in 2012.
West Ham and Spurs have met five times previously in the League Cup. West Ham prevailed in 1966 and 2013, while Spurs came out on top in 1975, 1987 and 2003.
Ticket details will be confirmed in due course and published on whufc.com
League Cup Regulations say a minimum 10% of the tickets must be allocated to away fans. Should Spurs decide to full one of their 27 games at full capacity that would 9,000 but it is more likely the capacity will be restricted to 51,000 meaning around 5,100 tickets will be made available to West Ham fans.
The rules say ‘Immediately after the draw is known the two Clubs concerned must mutually agree the prices. All questions in dispute must be immediately referred to the Management Committee for settlement.’
‘In all Cup Competition matches, the Visiting Club shall have the right to claim 10 per cent of all tickets reserved or otherwise sold in advance (any variation to that figure shall be subject to the consent of the Management Committee) and on the following conditions: the request for tickets shall be made within three days of the draw’
