Annual ‘leaking’ of the Premier League fixtures – Little bit more elaborate this time
It is that time of year once again, the release of the Premier League fixtures.
At 9am tomorrow (Thursday 13 June 2019) we will be able to plan the next year of our lives.
At least in terms of what order in which we play the other 19 PL clubs home and away, with changes wrought by the demands of broadcaster changing many of the original dates and/or times.
In recent years, it has also become a tradition to in advance of the official release, to have the annual ‘leaking’ of the Premier League fixtures.
Earlier today we have seen the 2019/20 ‘leaking’, which is a little bit more elaborate (See below) this time.
An image circulating on the internet, claiming to show the Premier League fixtures on the opening day of the season.
The image including Premier League branding and more bizarrely, even claiming knowledge of which games have been picked for TV.
Whilst this leak claims Newcastle are travelling to play at Everton still at 3pm on the Saturday (10 August), it has five of the other games moved for TV with different dates and/or times.
All very dubious, especially when the first set of live TV games (August and September matches) aren’t made known until the first week in July usually, at the earliest.
The ‘leaked’ image that has been circulating and the claimed fixtures and dates/times below, just in case you can’t see them clearly.

3pm Bournemouth v Sheffield United
