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:

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Something should be done about this lots fans booked trains and hotels for two nights and got tickets for the boxing they should change the match back to the Saturday as disgrace. After announcing the T.V. fixtures they should not be allowed to change them no matter what.

  • Craig Horne

    Total joke. Refund for match ticket is easy enough to get. However train tickets etc the money has been lost yet again. Football should be about supporters not just pandering to TV audiences. Will something ever be done…I doubt it.

  • Mike

    why bother clubs/sky dont give a toss about support. boycott sky and the away games

  • Antenociticus

    Nineteen games at 1.1 million quid a game. Wonder where all of that money will end up? £ 21 million could’ve bought a canny striker. . . .

  • Mal

    It’s an absolute disgrace and confirms what we already know – supporters get no consideration whatsoever and are at the bottom of the pile as far as the PL and broadcasters are concerned.
