Tottenham Hotspur away moved to Thursday 4 January

Wembley Stadium

West Ham United's Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur will take place on Thursday 4 January.

The fixture will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, with a kick-off time of 8pm.

The fixture had originally been provisionally scheduled for Sunday 31 December however, despite significant work by all stakeholders, the Safety Advisory Group at Wembley Stadium could only recommend a maximum crowd of 43,000.

This was due to transport issues, primarily at local tube stations whose resources were being deployed elsewhere across London on New Year’s Eve.

Following extensive discussions between stakeholders, a decision has been taken to move the fixture into the New Year so more supporters, home and away, can attend the game.

Ticket and allocation details will be confirmed in due course.

We would like to apologise to supporters for the delay in confirming details for this fixture and for any inconvenience this may have caused.
