West Ham's opening game of the 2017/18 season will be featured live on TV.

It was announced today that the Hammers' opening match of the new campaign - a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United - has been delayed by 24 hours. The game will now take place on Sunday, 13 August (4pm kick off).

As a result of this summer's Athletics Championships taking place at the Olympic Stadium, West Ham will play their first three games of the season, at least, away from home.

However United's first home game of the season has also been moved for the benefit of TV audiences, with newly-promoted Huddersfield's visit to east London now scheduled for Monday, 11th September (8pm kick off).

Additionally, a third game has been moved at the behest of the TV companies, with Tottenham's visit to the Olympic Stadium on Saturday, 23 September having been brought forward to 12.30pm.

Opening games - 2017/18 season

Sunday 13 August: Manchester Utd (a)
Saturday 19 August: Southampton (a)
w/c 21 August: Carabao Cup 2nd Round (TBC)
Saturday 26 August: Newcastle Utd (a)
Monday 11 September: Huddesfield (h)
