West Ham United will face local outfit side Fürstenfeld on their Austrian tour.

The town - boasting a population of just 7,000 - will host the Hammers and their travelling contingent when the sides meet in Fürstenfeld on Wednesday, 15th July.

Fürstenfeld currently play in Austria's Sparkassen Landesliga and narrowly missed out on winning the title last season, eventually finishing in third place behind Favia Solva and Kalsdorf.

The fixture is the second confirmed game of the tour with the Hammers already set to meet Werder Bremen in Bad Waltersdorf on Saturday, 18th July.

KUMB understands that Gianfranco Zola's side could be playing up to four games on the tour; dates of the remaining fixtures are expected to follow soon.

Grays Athletic (a): July 12th

Asia Cup (Beijing): Tottenham (29th July), Final v Hull/Beijing (31st July)

''The Austrian Landesliga you mentioned in your article is the "Landesliga of Styria", i.e. the fourth tier of Austrian football. The "Landesliga" covers the best sides from the federal province of Styria that don't play in the Bundesliga (Austrian Premier League) -as Sturm Graz and Kapfenberg- or the Austrian "League One" or the "Regionalliga Mitte" (the latter covering clubs from the provinces Styria, Carinthia and Upper Austria).
Hope to meet you in Austria!''
