West Ham may need to borrow ground

New stadium not available for Europa qualifier

West Ham United may need to borrow a ground to host their Europa League third qualifying round tie.

Manchester United's dramatic extra-time FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace meant that the Hammers qualified for the Europa League with the east London side entering at the third qualifying round stage.

The home and away legs are due to be held on 28th July and 4th August but with UK Athletics holding an event from 22-24th July and the stadium needing seven days to be transformed from athletics to football use, that would not leave enough time to prepare the ground if West Ham are drawn to play the first leg at home.

The draw for the third qualifying round takes place on 15th July and West Ham will have less than two weeks for find a solution if they are playing at home first.

A friendly with Juventus has been organised as the Olympic Stadium’s official curtain-raiser on 7th August.

West Ham’s co-owner David Gold tweeted his delight at his club's qualification for European football's second tier competition: “Congratulations Man Unt. I’m sorry for all my friends at Crystal Palace but West Ham are in the Europa League a great end to our season.”
