Fixtures 2013-14 - Palace First, Key Dates

Posted by Spurs Comms Team on 19 June 2013  - 09:00

We will kick-off our 2013-14 Barclays Premier League campaign with a trip to newly-promoted Crystal Palace.

We are scheduled to travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday, August 17.

Palace finished fifth in the Championship and after beating Brighton in the play-offs, secured their place back in the Premier League with a 1-0 win against Watford at Wembley.

Our second fixture and first home game in the Premier League in 2013-14 is against Swansea City.

We finish August with one of the highlights of the season - the first North London derby of the campaign and a trip to Arsenal, scheduled for Saturday, August 31.

Remember, this is very much a provisional fixture list and all fixtures are subject to change.

KEY DATES

As stated above, the first North London derby arrives early at the Emirates on August 31 and we're scheduled to face the Gunners at home on March 15.

We face back-to-back derbies at the Lane against Chelsea on September 28 and then West Ham on October 5. We take on the Manchester clubs in successive weeks, a trip to City on November 23 followed by United at home on November 30.

In December, we face Liverpool for the first time on December 14 and travel to Old Trafford on New Year's Day.

We face City at the Lane on January 29 and we have back-to-back derbies again with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on March 8 and Arsenal on March 15. We then travel to Anfield March 29.

We take on West Ham at Upton Park on May 3 and our final fixture is Villa at home, scheduled for May 11.

Once again, please remember this is very much a provisional fixture list and all fixtures are subject to change.

PROMOTED TEAMS

After facing Palace on the opening day, our next encounter with a promoted team is our first trip to the new Cardiff City Stadium, scheduled for September 21.

We face Hull at the Lane on October 26 and then Palace at home on January 11. We travel to Hull's KC Stadium on February 1 and Cardiff are scheduled for the Lane on March 1.

FIXTURE CHANGES - EUROPA LEAGUE

Please also note that our Europa League involvement (as these are mainly Thursday night games) will see our Barclays Premier League matches being moved from Saturday to Sunday as we progress.

We enter the Europa League at the play-off stage in August. The draw for the play-offs is scheduled for Friday, August 9.

Our Europa League involvement means we are also exempt from the second round of the League Cup – now known as the Capital One Cup - and enter that competition in the third round stage. The third round is scheduled for the week starting Monday, September 23.

FIXTURE CHANGES - TV

Sky Sports and BT Sport will make their first live selections soon, although those potential changes will not be announced until July.
