West Ham United return to Barclays Premier League action next Saturday.
Seven days after the trip to Aston Villa on 14 August, the first home league contest will take place against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday 21 August. The Bolton date promises to be a real family affair with the club making it a Kids for a Quid game.
Avram Grant's men will hope to get up and running with a victory, especially as they face two titantic tussles with London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the following two home games. Tickets are on sale for all three, with fans snapping up the best seats hour by hour.
Season tickets are still available but anyone wanting to bag a prime position should move fast. The club expects a flurry of extra applications as time ticks away to the big kick-off.
Don't forget that season ticket holders:
* Save up to £211 compared with buying individual match tickets
* Get their Saturdays back at the Boleyn Ground. None of the first wave of matches have been moved to Sunday for TV broadcast as yet.
* Will have loyalty rewarded through fantastic additional benefits
* Have the opportunity to use our Season Ticket Trader facility, so you won't lose out if you can't make it to every home match
We understand, though, that not all fans are able to make such a commitment. However, those supporters should consider becoming an Academy member with plenty of added benefits that make financial and football sense.
