The first competitive fixture of the 2021/22 season at London Stadium pits West Ham United U23s in a London derby against Arsenal U23s on Monday 16 August at 7pm – and tickets are now on sale!
The huge match, which West Ham United Season Ticket Holders and Claret Members can attend for free, sees the young Hammers look to get their Premier League 2 Division 1 campaign off to the best possible start against the junior Gunners.
Dmitri Halajko’s development squad memorably secured four points off Arsenal in their final two games of 2020/21 – including a last-gasp, dramatic 2-2 draw on the final day of the season.
Looking to push up the table this time around, West Ham’s U23s have been in free-scoring form in pre-season, netting 18 goals in just seven games over the summer.
Exciting new signings Armstrong Okoflex and Thierry Nevers have scored three goals apiece, and fellow new Hammers Pierre Ekwah and Brian Kinnear – as well as last season’s first-team debutants Harrison Ashby, Jamal Baptiste, Emmanuel Longelo and Ademipo Odubeko – could also feature.
Playing in front of a home crowd means a huge amount to the future stars of the Academy of Football, who last enjoyed the presence of the Claret and Blue Army in March 2020.
Players and staff alike would cherish having your support inside London Stadium for the crucial season-opening game.
West Ham United U23s return to Premier League 2 Division 1 action against Arsenal at London Stadium on Monday 16 August, with kick-off at 7pm.
