Newcastle United Official Announcement:
‘Newcastle United’s opening fixture of the 2021/22 Premier League season, at home to West Ham United, has been chosen for live television coverage.
The game will be shown live on Sky Sports and as a result, will move to Sunday, 15th August with a 2pm (BST) kick-off.

The Premier League have also announced that, due to Leicester City’s involvement in the Europa League, Newcastle’s away game against the Foxes on Saturday, 11th December is likely to be affected.
Confirmation of the final date and kick-off time will be confirmed when the broadcast selections for December are released. ‘
