West Ham’s new Olympic Sta­dium will not be ready in time for the Ham­mers’ open­ing game in the Europa League. Slaven Bilic’s side gained a place in the qual­i­fy­ing rounds of the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter Manch­ester United won the FA Cup on Satur­day. How­ever, the third qual­i­fy­ing round first leg is sched­uled for July 28 and the new ground can­not be used un­til Au­gust. The draw takes place on July 15 and West Ham would have less than two weeks to find a so­lu­tion. They could re­quest the first leg is played away from home or they will have to play at an al­ter­na­tive venue.
