We are looking forward to coming to Nanjing and Shanghai to compete in the Premier League Asia Trophy
West Ham will travel to China for the second time in their history this summer, having previously participated in the 2009 Barclays Asia Trophy, when they faced Wolves and Beijing Gouan in Shanghai.
Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini will also return to the country where he managed Hebei China Fortune between 2016 and 2018 and is looking forward to the experience.
He said: “Having managed in China I know how much the fans love football, so we are looking forward to coming to Nanjing and Shanghai to compete in the Premier League Asia Trophy.”
Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters added: “Through the Premier League Asia Trophy we are committed to giving as many fans as possible the opportunity to enjoy the Premier League experience in their own country.
“We are delighted to be bringing this year’s tournament to both Nanjing and Shanghai, and to be able to offer fans in China the chance to watch a host of world-class talent in action at truly affordable prices.
