Pre-season games update

The 2008/09 pre-season campaign will now end with a West Ham United XI in action against Tilbury on Monday 11 August.

The fixture at the Essex club's Chadfields ground will come two days after the traditional high-profile curtain-raiser for the first team at the Boleyn Ground against Villarreal. Another highlight of the summer programme will be the North American tour between 18-25 July when the club will play Major League Soccer side Columbus Crew in Ohio, USA on Sunday 20 July before travelling across the Canadian border to face the MLS All-Stars in Toronto on Thursday 24 July. The new season begins on 16 August at home to Wigan Athletic.

Ticket information for all games as and when available is in the ticket office section.
