It will be a 2.00pm kick off for pay per view television.
This means that four games on the trot at Upton Park will be live on TV: Everton on Sunday, 27th of October, Leeds, Manchester United on Sunday, 17th of November, and Southampton on Monday, 2nd of December.
The away Premier League fixture with Manchester United on Saturday, 14th of December has been selected as a Pay Per View match with a 12.15 pm kick off.
However, should Manchester United progress to the Champions League second group stage, the kick off time may revert back to 3.00pm as a result of their European commitments the previous week.
Further details will be made available when known.
Meanwhile, two under-19 games in the FA Premier Academy League this winter have been switched to Upton Park from Little Heath.
These are the Coventry City game, which moves to a 1pm kick off from 11.00am on Saturday, 2nd November, and the match against Fulham on Saturday, 14th December, which has a similar time change.
