Fixture changes - TV selections
11 July 2013|Spurs Comms Team
A number of our fixtures in the Barclays Premier League have changed after the announcement of the first round of televised matches by Sky Sports and BT Sport.
These include two of our first three fixtures - the opener at Palace and the big North London derby at Arsenal - while our second match, and first at home against Swansea, has moved to Sunday, August 25 due to our involvement in the Europa League play-off.
The initial changes to our Premier League fixtures can now be confirmed as follows:
Crystal Palace (A) – now Sunday 18 August – KO 1.30pm – Sky Sports
Swansea City (H) – now Sunday 25 August – KO 4.00pm - moved due to Europa League play-off
Arsenal (A) – now Sunday 1 September – KO 4.00pm – Sky Sports
Chelsea (H) – Saturday 28 September – KO now 12.45pm – BT Sport
Aston Villa (A) – now Sunday 20 October – KO 4.00pm – Sky Sports
Everton (A) – now Sunday 3 November – KO 1.30pm – Sky Sports
Newcastle United (H) – now Sunday 10 November – KO 12.00pm – Sky Sports
Manchester City (A) – Saturday 23 November – KO now 5.30pm – Sky Sports
Manchester United (H) – Saturday 30 November – KO now 12.45pm – BT Sport
Premier League matches that follow on from the Europa League rounds - and that have not already been moved to Sunday for live TV coverage - can only be rescheduled at the point at which we qualify for each phase of the competition.
We enter the Europa League at the play-off stage this season.
The draw is on Friday, August 9 with the play-off matches scheduled for Thursday, August 22 and August 29.
With progression to the Europa League Group Stage, the home match with Manchester United will be moved to Sunday 1 December KO 12.00pm and will remain live on BT Sport.
The TV selections have been made for the period through to the end of November.
For matches beyond this, selections will be made on a monthly basis and will be notified in due course.
