Liverpool date changed


Filed: Wednesday, 12th April 2017
By: Staff Writer


West Ham United's final home game of the season has been moved to a Sunday lunchtime.

The Hammers were previously scheduled to host Liverpool at tthe Olympic Stadium on Saturday, 13 May.

However at the behest of the TV companies the game will now be played the following day, Sunday 14 May with a 2.15pm kick off.




The game is just the latest match to be moved at the last minute for the benefit of TV audiences, with news of the change coming just four weeks ahead of the fixture.

Consequently, and not for the first time this season, many non-local supporters - who had already booked trains, flights and/or hotels - will be left out of pocket as a result.

That leaves West Ham's fixture with Everton as the club's only remaining match scheduled to kick off at the traditional 3pm Saturday slot.
