After a closing fixture at the Boleyn Ground with Manchester Utd, the curtain will rise for West Ham on 2016/17 against another elite Premier League club.

The Irons will face a tough London derby away at Chelsea on August 13 with the Blues under their new head coach Antonio Conte.

But the honour of playing the first Premier League tie at the Olympic Stadium falls to Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, who pitch up a week later on August 20. The next two to visit Stratford are Watford and Southampton.

There's a tough – possibly defining – spell in November/December when West Ham go on the road to play Spurs, Manchester Utd and Liverpool with a home Arsenal game as well. Both Manchester clubs come to London in January and champions Leicester in March.

The east London club will close the season away at newcomers Burnley on May 21 after two home matches against Spurs and Liverpool. All are subject to change as TV slots have yet to be allocated.
