The Hammers will be looking to book a continental semi-final for a second consecutive year, having reached this stage of the UEFA Europa League last term, and stretch an English club record of ten straight victories in European competition. A 6-0 aggregate success over Cypriots AEK Larnaca in the round of 16 sealed our progression to this stage, following a perfect six wins from six in Group B as Danes Silkeborg IF, Romanians FCSB and Gent’s fellow Belgians RSC Anderlecht were all seen off.


45pm BST. You can also follow the action via our live blog on whufc. com and our app and across our social media channels. We will also have highlights and exclusive reaction for you after the final whistle. Team News… West Ham were without striker Gianluca Scamacca and midfielder Paquetá for Saturday’s Premier League victory over Fulham due to injuries and, while Scamacca is likely to remain sidelined for the trip to Belgium, the Hammers will take a check on the Brazilian’s fitness. Flynn Downes returns from a European suspension and is available for selection again, while Alphonse Areola could return in goal for an eleventh continental appearance this term. Angelo Ogbonna and Divin Mubama are both one yellow card away from having to serve a one-match ban in this competition.


Gent, meanwhile, booked their ticket to Europe by winning their domestic cup for the fourth time last term, and after being defeated by Omonia of Cyprus in the Europa League play-off round, came through a Conference League group containing Molde of Norway, Shamrock Rovers of Ireland and Djurgårdens of Sweden, before defeating Azeri side Qarabag and Turks Istanbul Basaksehir in the knockout rounds to date. Having reached a continental quarter-final for the second time in their history, the Hammers’ task is to make sure Gent do not advance to a first semi-final. Tickets… Tickets for this match sold out to Bondholders and Season Ticket Holders with 60+ Loyalty Points.


Opposition… Gent were formed as long ago as 1864, the year after the Laws of the Game of association football were adopted by the Football Association. However, while Société Gymnastique la Gantoise – Gent Gymnatics Society – as it was initially known, provided gymnastics, athletics, boxing, swimming, hockey, tennis and even cricket to its members, it would be 41 years until the club formally launched a football section in 1900.

Since the turn of the millennium, Gent have enjoyed the best period in their history, winning two more Belgian Cups, a Belgian Super Cup, regularly qualifying for Europe, reaching the UEFA Champions League round of 16 and, in 2014/15, winning the First Division for the first time in their history. The man who masterminded that success was the man who will stand in the visitors’ technical area on Thursday, manager Hein Vanhaezenbrouck, who returned for a second spell in charge at the club’s smart 20, 000-seater Ghelamco Arena in December 2020. Previous meetings…. Gent provided West Ham United’s first-ever opponents in European competition, back in our glorious 1964/65 European Cup Winners’ Cup run.


It would be in 1964, exactly 100 years after the club was originally founded, that the football team lifted its first major trophy, the Belgian Cup, by defeating Diest 4-2 after extra-time at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels. That success saw them qualify for the 1964/65 European Cup Winners’ Cup, where they faced English FA Cup holders West Ham United in the first round, and the Hammers edged through 2-1 on aggregate.


Six years later, the club translated its name to the Flemish Koninklijke Atletiek Associatie (KAA) Gent. However, the change did not coincide with a successful time on the pitch, as Gent were relegated twice, first to the Second and then, in 1974, to the Third Division. By 1980, however, the Buffaloes had charged back to the First Division. A second Belgian Cup was won in 1984, and Gent returned to European competition four times in the decade, reaching the UEFA Cup third round in 1986/87 before losing to eventual winners IFK Gothenburg of Sweden. The 1990s were less memorable, aside from a run to the UEFA Cup quarter-finals in 1991/92, when again the eventual winners, this time Dutch side Ajax, would be their conquerors.


The team adopted the colours of blue and white and played their first official fixture that November. After winning the Belgian Second Division title in 1912/13, the following year the club was granted the title Association Royale Athlétique La Gantoise in recognition of being in existence for 50 years – although, of course, it had only played football for 14! It was also around this time that the American Buffalo Bill visited the area with his Wild West Show, and the club adopted the nickname De Buffalo’s (The Buffaloes). Both World Wars ravaged Belgium, with the country being invaded and occupied by Germany. On both occasions, organised football was suspended for a number of seasons. On the resumption after the Second World War, La Gantoise were in the First Division, and twice went close to winning their maiden title in the mid-1950s.
