Dundee will host EFL club Leyton Orient and English Premier League side West Ham United in pre-season friendlies at Dens Park.

James McPake’s side are back in the cinch Premiership this season, following from their victory in last term’s promotion play-off match against Kilmarnock. They will prepare for the new term – which starts in July with Premier Sports Cup matches – against Leyton Orient and West Ham United.

Orient currently play in League Two down south while West Ham United provide a glamour tie for McPake’s side. A small amount of supporters will be allowed into both matches.

A Dundee statement reads: “The club are delighted to announce two further matches in our pre-season schedule. Both matches will be played at Dens Park as we welcome Leyton Orient and West Ham United. The match against Leyton Orient will take place on Tuesday 6th July with a 5pm kick off.

 

“Three days later we welcome West Ham on Friday 9th with a 1pm kick off. In line with current Scottish Government COVID regulations, the game will be played without away supporters present and the home club will be permitted to admit a limited amount of supporters due to the restrictions in place.

“As such the club have made the decision to make the limited amount of tickets to the match available for the Leyton Orient game to a limited number of 2021/22 Season Ticket Holders and the West Ham game to a limited number of 1893 Foundation members (who were signed up by the month of May 2021).”
