Decision announced on Newcastle United Live TV matches for April – 4 games were under threat

2 years ago

A decision on Newcastle United Live TV matches in April 2020 was set to be announced today.

The Premier League and TV companies keeping to the scheduled date for announcing these TV moves, with confirmation of games coming late on Friday.

The previous announcement saw no Newcastle United games in March 2020 selected.

The games under threat this time were:

April 2020

Saturday 4 Bournemouth v Newcastle 3pm

Sat 11 Newcastle v West Ham 3pm

Sat 18 Man City v Newcastle 3pm

Sat 25th Watford v Newcastle 3pm

Today’s announcement from the Premier League saw NO Newcastle United games selected once again! Not one NUFC April game listed in the official PL announcement.

However, Sky Sports are showing that they HAVE picked the Newcastle v West Ham match which is/was currently scheduled for Saturday 11 April at 3pm but they are saying ‘TBC’ and reports elsewhere say that if it is confirmed as a Sky Sports live match, it will be moved to 8pm on Friday 10 April.

A couple of FA Cup warnings to keep in mind as well.

If Newcastle beat West Brom, then the quarter-final would be played on the weekend of Saturday 21 March and the home match with Villa needing a new date.

Whilst if either NUFC or Man City reach the FA Cup semis, the PL game on Saturday 18 April would need a new date,

Newcastle United have been on live TV 16 times already this season.

This breaks down to 14 of the first 26 Premier League matches, plus the FA Cup games at Rochdale and Oxford.

As things stand at the minute though, the Premier League (unless West Ham at home is confirmed later) are saying we will have at least nine PL games without live TV in the UK, with the West Brom FA Cup match making it 10.

This is pretty much unheard of for Newcastle United but little surprise considering how boring and poor the football is under Steve Bruce.
