Another announcement on Newcastle United live TV matches was surprisingly made today.
There have been 16 NUFC games shown live so far, 15 in the Premier League and the FA Cup match at Chelsea.
The Premier League matches at Spurs was scheduled to be shown last Friday but Tottenham’s FA Cup tie took precedence so it remains to be seen if when it is rearranged, it is still shown on live TV.
The home game with Arsenal was moved to Sunday 15 April when the April matches for TV were all confirmed…
However, Thursday afternoon has seen the Everton away game suddenly moved, only 30 days before it was due to be played.
It was due to be 3pm Saturday 21 April but it is now moved to the dreaded 8pm on a Monday night slot (23 April) to be shown on Sky Sports.
It is disgraceful to be honest.
At the end of February when the live tv games for April were announced, I didn’t see one mention that any further matches could be moved.
Fans would quite rightfully have taken it as gospel that the match dates in April were now set.
I’m guessing loads of supporters will have already booked travel and accommodation because it is a popular choice for a stay over, a great night out to be had in Liverpool.
In their announcement of the news, Newcastle United say that any fan can have a ticket refund but what about trains, flights, accommodation where people can’t get refunds…?
These are the remaining 8 Newcastle Premier League games:
