Manchester City and West Ham set to face off in Iceland this summer – City Watch
Manchester City are poised to meet fellow Premier League side West Ham in a glamour friendly at the 9,800-seat Laugardalsvöllur in Reykjavík, Iceland this summer.
According to local source RÚV, KSÍ, the Icelandic Football Association, is in talks with a foreign company to rent Laugardalsvöllur for a friendly.
KSI chief, Klara Bjartmars, confirmed that talks have taken place but would not name the clubs that would be involved. However, RÚV has learned that it is Man City and West Ham who are lined up to meet in the Icelandic capital.
The initial plan was for City to play Arsenal, who met in Gothenburg, Sweden last June, but with Arsenal’s Community Shield commitments, it was decided that West Ham would replace them.
The friendly is yet to be signed off on, but it could be an interesting away day for fans of the Blues and Hammers if the game is made official.
