Aston Villa will play West Ham United in a pre-season friendly at Bank's Stadium on Wednesday 25th July.
The fixture will kick-off at 7.45pm, with ticket information to be released in due course.
The Hammers join Telford United, Kidderminster Harriers, Walsall, Burton Albion and Dynamo Dresden on our pre-season schedule.
Dates and kick-off times for all our friendly matches can be found here.
The switch to Walsall comes in light of the major redevelopment work to the Villa Park pitch this summer.
It is currently undergoing its first complete rebuild in more than 30 years, with the 10-week project set to be completed in time for the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
