West Ham United's opponents for the final pre-season friendly of the summer have been confirmed.

Julen Lopetegui's side will host mid-table La Liga outfit Celta Vigo on Saturday, 10 August - the final weekend before the 2024/25 Premier League season begins.

And it will be the home fans' first opportunity to see the Spanish manager at the London Olympic Stadium - as well as new signing Luis Guilherme.

However a growing number of supporters have indicated that they will boycott the fixture as part of ongoing opposition to the club's much-criticised removal of concession seating in Bands 1-4 for new season ticket holders - which you may read more about here.

The match, scheduled for a 3pm kick off will see West Ham host Claudio Giráldez's side, who finished 13th in the table last season with 41 points from their 38 fixtures - eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Prior to that, West Ham will play a handful of friendlies which include short trips to Dagenham & Redbridge and a considerably longer journey to Florida, where Lopetegui's side will face Crystal Palace and Wolves in the Stateside Cup.
