Our first pre-season friendly has been confirmed with a trip to West Ham United coming up for Thomas Frank’s side ahead of the new campaign. We will head to the London Stadium next Saturday, 29 August, kick-off 2pm.
The game against The Hammers is our first confirmed fixture ahead of the new Sky Bet Championship campaign which will begin a fortnight later on the weekend of 12 September. Fixtures for the new season will be announced at 9am tomorrow, Friday, morning.
David Moyes’ side finished last season 16th in the Premier League, five points above the drop zone. United lost just one of their last seven league matches, taking 12 points from that run, to ensure they remained a top-flight side.
They found out their opponents for the new campaign this morning with Newcastle United making the trip to East London for their opening fixture on Saturday 12 September.
Details surrounding coverage of the game at the London Stadium will follow in the coming days.
