Betway Cup goes abroad


Filed: Tuesday, 13th June 2017
By: Staff Writer


This year's Betway Cup will take place in GERMANY - a two-legged affair against Werder Bremen.

Due to the IAAF World Athletics Championships being staged at the Olympic Stadium (between 4-13 August), the Hammers will be unable to stage their traditional pre-season curtain-raiser at 'home'.




As a result, the decision has been made to hold the fixtures at the Osterwald Stadion, Schneverdingen on July 28 - with the second leg being held at the Heinz-Dettmer Stadion, Lohne 24 hours later.

Founded in 1899, Werder Bremen are based in the North West of Germany and count Hamburg as their fiercest rivals. They (usually!) play their home games at the 42,000-capacity Weserstadion.
