Newcastle United official announcement confirms West Ham match moved
In an official announcement on Wednesday afternoon, Newcastle United have revealed that the West Ham match has been moved.
That game against the Hammers was scheduled for a 2pm kick-off on Sunday 5 July.
However, whilst the day remains the same, NUFC confirm the kick-off has now been moved back to 2.15pm, no explanation given as to why this has been done.
Including the sixth round FA Cup tie against Man City, six of Newcastle’s nine remaining matches are now confirmed (see below), unless there are any more unexpected changes…
There could of course end up being 10 or 11 NUFC more matches in total, if getting through to the FA Cup semi, as well as potentially the final…
The three Newcastle Premier League games yet to be confirmed are the home matches against Spurs and Liverpool, as well as away at Brighton, although the previously announced provisional dates for those are also listed below.
Newcastle United official announcement:
‘Newcastle United’s Premier League home game against West Ham United will now kick off 15 minutes later than initially scheduled.
