It has been confirmed that West Ham will wear their home strip at next weekend's play-off Final against Blackpool.
According to Football League rules, the team who finishes higher in the division wear their home kit, whilst the lower placed team wears a change strip - all of which means that Blackpool will wear white shirts and tangering shorts at Wembley.
The last occasion on which Blackpool played in their white away kit against West Ham was in last October's Championship clash, when Sam Allardyce's side ran out 4-0 winners at the Boleyn Ground.
More recently the two sides met at Bloomfield Road back in February when West Ham won 4-1, despite playing with ten men and midfielder Henri Lansbury in goal for all but three minutes of the second half after Rob Green was sent off.
West Ham's most recent appearance at Wembley came in 1981 when Ray Stewart's last minute penalty earned a replay against Liverpool in the League Cup Final.
