Saints Get First TV Fixture Changes For The Season
Friday, 5th Jul 2019 11:57
In the first round of games that will be broadcast on TV Saints have only had two fixtures moved and both are at home.
Surprisingly Saints opening home fixture against Liverpool on Saturday August 17th will remain in place, but the second game set for St Mary's against Manchester United on Saturday August 31st sees a change.
Although it will not change date, the game will now kick off at lunchtime 12.30.
The next change comes with the visit of Bournemouth, this has now been moved from Saturday 21st September to Friday 20th with an 8pm kick off.
Although a Friday evening game is disliked by most football supporters, from a Bournemouth perspective this is the most accessible of their fixtures to be moved to this time slot.
This takes the fixture list up to the end of September meaning that Saints will only have these two fixture changes and neither are major in the grand scheme of things.
Saints will not be affected y any changes made for those clubs in the Europa League, non of our fixtures against Man Utd, Arsenal or potentially Wolves in the Europa Group stages up to Xmas clash with us.

Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.

So Christmas came and went and for many the lasting memory will be of Valeri Belokon breaking a long, self-imposed silence to send we supporters festive greetings.
