The wizards of Oz: West Ham planning summer tour

By: Staff Writer


West Ham are set for a double date on the other side of the world this summer.

The Hammers are in talks with both Adelaide United and Perth Glory regarding a whistle-stop tour of Australia this coming pre-season, ahead of the club's second campaign at the Olympic Stadium.




According to the WA, Slaven Bilic and his squad are set to open their tour at the Adelaide Oval this July before flying to Perth, the home state of former Hammers Dylan Tombides, for a second fixture.

A spokesman for Glory - who erected a staue of Tombides outside their ground in 2015 - confirmed that negotiations were under way, but added there was nothing to announce at this stage.




West Ham most recently visited Australasia in 2014 under Sam Allardyce when they were beaten 3-1 by Sydney FC - a matter of days after suffering a 2-1 defeat against Wellington Phoenix in New Zealand.

The team that day - 26 July - was as follows: Adrian, Demel, O'Brien, Reid, Collins, Noble, Diame, Nolan, Downing, Jarvis, Cole.
