Friday announcement – Now 6 Newcastle United Live TV matches scheduled until 1 April

2 years ago

There have been twelve Newcastle United live TV matches so far, including the League Cup match at Forest and the home (overseas TV only) and away FA Cup matches against Blackburn.

Another three games had also already also been moved for the purposes of live TV in January and February, these being the Premier League games against Man City (Home), Tottenham (Away) and Wolves (Away).

However, on Friday we were set to find out just how many have been chosen for March.

Today (25 January) is the scheduled date (see all scheduled dates for the release of live TV fixtures below) when Premier League and broadcasters were set to announce the Newcastle United live TV matches that have been chosen for March 2019.

The away games at West Ham and Arsenal have been chosen for Live TV and the March (and 1 April!) schedule is now:

Saturday 2 March 2019 (Sky Sports)

West Ham v Newcastle (5.30pm)

Saturday 9 March

Newcastle v Everton (3pm)

Saturday 16 March

Bournemouth v Newcastle (3pm)

Monday 1 April (Sky Sports)

Arsenal v Newcastle (8pm)

However, the late February match at home to Burnley also has now got a new date due to Manchester City’s involvement in the Carabao Cup final.

City’s match against West Ham – which had been chosen as a live game – will move to Wednesday, 27th February, meaning a replacement live selection was required by BT Sport for Tuesday, 26th February.

This means three changes in total announced today, with six more Newcastle United Live TV matches are scheduled up to and including 1 April.

Quite shocking that the Burnley match has been moved with just over four weeks notice, when this wasn’t flagged up as a possibility previously. Especially when Man City won the first leg of their League Cup tie 9-0 (NINE NIL) in the first leg.

The complete NUFC PL schedule now confirmed so far, until end of February 2019:

Saturday 26 January 2019

Newcastle v Watford (3pm – FA Cup 4th round)

Tuesday 29 January 2019 (BT Sport)

Newcastle v Man City (8pm)

Saturday 2 February 2019 (Sky Sports)

Tottenham v Newcastle (12.30pm)

Monday 11 February 2019 (Sky Sports)
