Two April fixtures moved for live television coverage

Two of West Ham United’s Premier League fixtures in April have been moved for live television coverage.

The away match at Wolverhampton Wanderers will now be played on Easter Monday 5 April at 8.15pm and be screened live in the UK by Sky Sports.

Sky will also broadcast the home game with Leicester City on Sunday 11 April at 2.05pm.

The Hammers will be seeking to complete Premier League doubles over both clubs, having beaten them 4-0 at London Stadium and 3-0 at King Power Stadium respectively in the early weeks of the 2020/21 Premier League season.

Arrangements for the away match at Newcastle United and home fixture with Leicester City currently scheduled for Saturday 17 and Saturday 24 April at 3pm respectively, have yet to be confirmed.

With the country remaining in a national COVID-19 lockdown, the Premier League confirmed on 17 February that all remaining fixtures in the 2020/21 Premier League season will be broadcast live in the UK by their broadcast partners Sky Sports, BT, Amazon Prime Video and the BBC.

A statement released on that date said: "The Premier League today confirmed all fixtures for the 2020/21 season will continue to be made available to fans to watch live in the United Kingdom. This arrangement will be extended until Government guidance permits supporters to return to stadiums.

"All matches will be shown via existing broadcast partners Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and BBC, who continue to work with us to deliver these additional matches while stadiums are missing the supporters who are such an integral part of the game."
