The Olympic Stadium wrap will be in place for the visit of Bournemouth on 21 August, it has been confirmed.

Vice-chair Karren Brady tweeted this afternoon in order to confirm that the material wrap will be installed ahead of the Cherries' visit to the OS next month - West Ham's first home Premier League fixture at the stadium.

However the two giant video screens - a last-minute alternative to the shelved full digital wrap that was rejected at the planning stage - will not be erected until Sunderland visit E20 on 22 October, several months later than initially planned.

The finishing touches to the stadium have been going ahead in recent days, with more claret and blue-branded being installed in recent days.

That includes the giant 'West Ham' sign that will overlook the entrance to the island and other finsihng touches that have been left until the last possible moment.

West Ham play their first game at their new home next week, on Thursday 4 August against Domzale in the Europa League. Juventus visit three days later for United's final pre-season friendly before the Premier League kicks off a week later.
