West Ham 17-18 fixtures: Hammers kick-off at Old Trafford
West Ham United will kick off their 2017/18 Premier League campaign with a trip to Manchester United.
Following the release of the provisional fixture list at 9am this morning, it was confirmed that Slaven Bilic’s men will face the Red Devils at Old Trafford on the weekend of 12 August.
The encounter is likely to see Hammers wear their brand new 2017/18 black away kit and a debut for new signing Pablo Zabaleta.
The 2017/18 season will conclude with a home fixture against Everton on Sunday 13 May, while other notable dates in the calendar include a home derby with Chelsea on 9 December and a trip to AFC Bournemouth on Boxing Day, while West Bromwich Albion are the Hammers' home opponents on New Year's Day.
Meanwhile, the Hammers will be hoping to make it three home victories in successive seasons against Tottenham Hotspur when Mauricio Pochettino’s men visit London Stadium on 23 September. The return fixture against Spurs at their temporary Wembley home is scheduled for 30 December.
As previously confirmed, our opening fixtures in August will be played away from home as London Stadium welcomes the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships for a once-in-a-generation occasion.
Supporters are therefore advised that our second fixture of the campaign, against Southampton, will be rescheduled, with further details to follow.
With an international break scheduled after our away game against Newcastle United on 26 August, our first home match at London Stadium next season is set to be the visit of Huddersfield Town on the weekend of 9 September.
However, ALL fixtures are still subject to change, with the Sky TV and BT Sport live televised fixtures for the opening two months of the season yet to be confirmed, and supporters are urged to bear this in mind when making any travel arrangements for fixtures.
Any fixture changes will be announced on whufc.com as soon as they are confirmed.
