When Will The TV Fixtures Be Announced ? Find Out Here !
Wednesday, 19th Jun 2019 11:20
It has been almost a week since the Premier League Fixtures were announced along with the TV games for the opening day, hre we bring you the dates for your calendar of when each tranche of TV fixtures will be announced.
The rest of the fixtures for August and September will be announced by the Premier League on July 6th, just over a month before the season starts which is the minimum period of notice that must be given when changing a date for a game to be played to accommodate a live TV broadcast, although we all know that the TV companies operate on a basis of that as they are paying so much money rules are there to be broken.
In practice the actual notice period can vary between 4-6 weeks, although as the season drags on the TV companies will try to leave it as late as possible in their choices to ensure they can broadcast games that matter.
Of course there will be games that need to be changed at short notice for valid reasons ie European qualifications etc, but in the main they should be rare occasions.
Certainly there seems to be no reason why the TV companies could not have agreed who is broadcasting what and when for August by now.
The big question for those football fans who follow their teams by actually going to games is when they can know for sure if a fixture is a TV game or not so we have printed below the Premier League's official release dates for TV fixture for the coming season.

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
