West Ham United are delighted to announce that the dates for the Development Squad’s Barclays U21 Premier League Cup final with Hull City have been confirmed.

The final, which will be the final U21 game ever played at the Boleyn Ground, will see Terry Westley’s Hammers host the Tigers in the first leg on Monday 25 April, kick off 7pm.

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan urged supporters to take advantage of another opportunity to witness a historic fixture in Boleyn Ground history.

“This is a chance for fans to support the Club’s youngsters in an U21 Cup final – a massive night at the Boleyn Ground – for a tiny admission fee,” said the Joint-Chairman.

“With tickets for the remaining first-team matches in such high demand, this match represents an ideal opportunity to say their goodbyes to the stadium before we leave for Stratford this summer.

“The team has done brilliantly to get to the final, so please come along and give them your support as we would love them to finish the season with a trophy!”

The Hammers will then make the journey north for the second leg at Hull’s KC Stadium on Wednesday 4 May, with kick-off at 7pm.

Having beaten Exeter City, Fulham and Blackburn Rovers in the previous rounds, the young Hammers overcame a strong Liverpool side after extra time in an enthralling 3-2 semi-final win at Rush Green.

Ticket information for this unique and historic final will be announced shortly on whufc.com.

*This coming Monday 4 April, the Hammers face Stoke City in their final league game of the season. With a top-four finish and a Play-Off place at stake, kick-off at Rush Green Stadium is at 7pm. Admission is FREE for all fans.
