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.
