Hammers ready for final UK friendly

Excitement is building ahead of West Ham United's final pre-season friendly on home soil when they travel to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Sam Allardyce is expected to field a strong squad for the game at Portman Road as the Hammers play their penultimate friendly ahead of the big Barclays Premier League kick-off on August 18. West Ham United will play one more game against Braga in Portugal on Friday night so Ipswich represents the last chance for many fans to see the boys in claret and blue before the season starts.

Tickets for the 3pm kick-off are still available in person from the Alpari Stand ticket office until 3pm on Friday and then from the Cobbold Stand at Portman Road prior to kick-off. Prices start at £15 for adults and £9 of Over-65s and Under-20s. Under-16s are just £1 or free if bought with an adult ticket.

whufc.com will have exclusive pre-match thoughts from Big Sam later on Friday.
