News about this match first surfaced earlier in June and is now official, with West Ham revealing it as part of their pre-season schedule.

The initial plan was for City to play Arsenal, in a repeat of a friendly in Gothenburg, Sweden last June, but with Arsenal’s Community Shield commitments, it was decided that West Ham would replace them.

It will also mark a quick reunion with Man City of sorts for Pablo Zabaleta, who will line up for the Hammers against his former club.
