Newcastle United live TV matches announcement imminent – 6 more games under threat
Another announcement on Newcastle United live TV matches is scheduled for tomorrow
Tuesday is the date scheduled by the Premier League and broadcasters for live games in October and November.
The first announcement saw four of the first seven Newcastle matches selected and moved for TV, with indeed the very first four games all chosen.
The 7 August is the date (see below for full list of when live TV games should be announced throughout the season) when we should find out whether any/all of the six Newcastle games in October and November have been shifted.
The first game in October looks a knocking bet, as it is very rare for an NUFC game at Old Trafford not to be picked.
However, the other five don’t look obvious choices, though difficult to gauge at times as often the TV companies make some strange selections, plus they tend to try and get their minimal commitment of live games for less attractive/supported clubs out of the way in the first half of the season.
These are the games under threat from Tuesday’s scheduled announcement:
Saturday 6 October 3pm
Man Utd v Newcastle United
Saturday 20 October 3pm
Newcastle v Brighton
Saturday 27 October 3pm
Southampton v Newcastle
Saturday 3 November 3pm
Newcastle v Watford
Saturday 10 November 3pm
