Boreham Wood FC are delighted to announce our eagerly anticipated 5th home pre-season friendly against Europa Conference League Champions West Ham United, to be played on Monday 10 July 2023, kick-off 7.00pm.  

The club can also confirm our pre-season ticket pricing, including a significantly discounted pre-season ticket bundle for all five home pre-season friendlies that includes West Ham United at Meadow Park, yet another initiative implemented by our ticketing team to create local affordable football opportunities amidst the continued cost of living crisis.

Pre-season will kick off in the normal way, with a day of testing on Saturday 24 June. This day is coupled with the town’s much-loved Families Day on the adjacent Meadow Park, so Wood players and staff will also be popping across and paying the annual event a visit too to meet and greet our supporters, our families and our local community, so feel free to grab photos, and ask for autographs from Luke and the boys…

Luke, his staff and the team will then travel down to our now customary training camp to be looked after by our friends within the Brend Hotel Group down in Barnstable from 25 June to 30 June. It’s where the new squad, management, staff and players bond as they are looked after by our incredible personal friends who own the Brend Family Hotel Group, who we believe are the best independent Hoteliers and Hotel Group not only in the Devon and Cornwall area but throughout the UK.

We then come back to play against old friends within the Premier League and Championship… First up are familiar opposition from Watford FC, quickly followed by cup hero’s West Ham United, then two-days later we welcome a very strong Brentford side to Meadow Park. Please note all these fixtures are expected to be the visiting club’s first team squads.

When those games are out of the way, a Chelsea XI side visits Meadow Park before our great friends, partners and long-standing collaborators from Arsenal complete our pre-season programme by bringing an XI side to us on the last Saturday in July.

Away fixtures have also been scheduled with us visiting Bishop’s Stortford, Wingate & Finchley and Potters Bar Town.

So, with the West Ham United announcement there is now NO reason for you to delay buying your season ticket and if you pay in full by Friday 4 July, you will also get a FREE replica jersey and any three from five pre-season games of your choice included in the offer. So hurry, hurry, hurry! Help your local community club and help the Wood Army break the 850 season tickets sold target that been set for the new season.
