As expected, Sky Sports and ESPN have announced the fixtures they’ll be showing live coverage of for the first few months of the season.

Amazingly, the Hammers will be on the box for five of their opening seven fixtures.

The most significant changes to our schedule as a result of these TV announcements are that our visit to QPR has been moved to Monday 1 October and our home fixture with Stoke City will now take place on Monday 19 November. Both of those will be 20:00 kick-offs.

Below is a complete summary of all the fixture, kick-off times and TV changes:
