Friday brings news that the number of Newcastle United Live TV matches has increased by one.

Sky Sports are now showing the first four Newcastle games in all competitions, with the Forest League Cup match selected.

The game will be played on Wednesday 29 August with a 7.45pm kick-off.

That makes it seven guaranteed live TV NUFC matches before the end of November, with all of Newcastle’s fixtures list below, up to the end of that month.

Newcastle United official announcement:

‘Newcastle’s Carabao Cup second round tie at Nottingham Forest will be televised.

The game at the City Ground will be shown live on Sky Sports and as a result, will be played on Wednesday, 29th August (kick-off 7.45pm BST).

The draw was made on Thursday evening, with United drawn against Forest for the second season in a row. The Magpies lost 3-2 after extra time at St. James’ Park 12 months ago.

Sky Sports’ decision to broadcast the game live means Newcastle’s opening four fixtures of the season – including last weekend’s home clash with Tottenham – have been selected as live games.

Ticket news will be announced in due course.’

    A great chance to show the world ( and Sky) what we think of Mike Ashley. Protest outside the ground, protest outside the pub, protest by going to watch your local non league team whatever,but just stay away.But guess what?, there will still be a full house! same old, same old, nothing changes, and that’s what Mike Ashley and Sky are counting on !!

    • Ashley-out

      i just wish more fans had some backbone.

        Well said !!

    • Martin Rooney

      Can you give us a list of the local teams playing on sunday at 4pm.
      Think about it man

      • kingfisher

        I was talking generally Martin.My main point being do something else rather than go to SJP .Give your local team your support and watch some proper footballers who are in the game because they love playing,not to mention the owners of these non league clubs who are putting their own money in and are just surviving week to week, why do they do it ? because they love the game and they want to support their local community.
        A complete contrast to the players and owners of NUFC.

          You are right
