West Ham arranged six pre-season friendlies, beginning against Sturm Graz II on 17 July 2017 in Bad Waltersdorf, Austria, before facing fellow London side Fulham on 20 July in Graz. West Ham then travelled to Germany, where they faced Werder Bremen in a two-legged tie over two days for the Betway Cup which they lost, 3-2 on aggregate,[5][6] followed by a friendly with Altona 93 on 1 August.[7] West Ham then flew to Iceland to take on fellow Premier League side Manchester City in Reykjavík.[8]

In March 2018, with a break in Premier League action due to FA Cup and international games, the club travelled to financially struggling Dagenham & Redbridge for a fundraising game.[9]
