On 29 July 2022, official Premier League and membership bulletins revealed that Tottenham v Newcastle was one of many October matches that had been chosen for stay UK TV protection.
The sport staying on Saturday 22 October however kick-off moved to five.30pm and to be proven stay on Sky Sports activities.
Transferring swiftly ahead a few months and yesterday the November stay matches had been introduced, Newcastle’s video games in opposition to each Chelsea and Southampton chosen and moved (see beneath).
Nonetheless…there was a sting within the tail, because it was additionally casually talked about that Tottenham v Newcastle had moved AGAIN, now to be performed Sunday 23 October with a 4.30pm kick-off.
Drawback, large one.
When these October TV modifications had been introduced again in July, our household began making preparations.
My brother, his spouse and two children, all reserving per week’s vacation, flying from the States, with the Tottenham v Newcastle match on the coronary heart of these plans.
Flying into London, spending the week with us, then going to the match and flying again house out of London on the…Sunday (23 October).
Now, with away tickets so tough to get and needing to make sure you may have some when individuals are flying in from up to now, we needed to push the boat out, Spurs company tickets booked for me, my brother and his two teenage sons. The primary ever stay NUFC match for my nephews and first recreation in a canny whereas for my brother.
No thought what we’re going to do now.
For every kind of causes it isn’t doable / sensible to vary their flights and timing of their go to, so they are going to be flying house on the Sunday, not going to the match.
Little question some trolls / irritants will probably be saying ‘properly you recognize the rating, they’re all the time transferring matches about, ought to have identified higher…’
Nonetheless, in some unspecified time in the future you do must make longer-term preparations when individuals are travelling an enormous distance and making a dedication to get away from their regular on a regular basis lives. Plus, as soon as modifications are introduced and your recreation is moved for TV, absolutely it is best to then be capable to depend on that being when a recreation is going on.
My brother and household at the moment are coming over for a semi-pointless vacation, with the principle purpose for it ripped away. While I’ve 4 canny costly company tickets that I now must ask Tottenham a few refund…hopefully.
What will get me as properly, is the best way that this stuff are so casually introduced, as if there is no such thing as a influence on anyone.
When in actuality, there will probably be a whole lot of Newcastle followers who’ve made journey and probably lodging preparations for the unique date, which can or could not be capable to be modified / refunded. Little question a lot Spurs followers as properly.
One factor completely by no means modifications in relation to Premier League soccer, there’s NEVER any consideration given to the followers, when any determination is made.
