4 Arsenal fixtures rescheduled for live TV

By on February 26, 2016


Arsenal have confirmed that four fixtures have been rescheduled after being selected to be broadcast on live TV throughout April.

Our trip to Upton Park to take on West Ham on April 9th has now been moved from it’s original 3pm Saturday kick off to 12.45pm so it can be shown live on BT Sport.

The following week we entertain Crystal Palace at the Emirates and that match will now be played on Sunday 17th at 4pm and shown live on Sky Sports. Although the game could yet be moved back to the Saturday depending on our progress in the FA Cup.

Our game with Sunderland has also been moved to Sunday April 24 and will be shown on Sky Sports, kicking off at 2.05pm, but again this game is subject to our participation in the FA Cup.

Finally, our home match with Norwich City will now kick off at 5.30pm and be broadcast on Sky Sports – however, this game could yet move depending on English clubs progress in European competition.
