5 Arsenal fixtures rescheduled after being chosen for live TV

By on February 28, 2017

Five Arsenal fixtures have been rescheduled after the TV companies revealed their latest selections for upcoming matches in April.

Luckily for those of you who only have Sky Sports and don’t have access to BT Sport, all of our games chosen in April will be broadcast on Sky.

We kick off the month by hosting Manchester City and unsurprisingly this top-four battle has been moved to Sunday April 2nd kicking off at 4pm.

Our subsequent clash with West Ham has therefore been moved back from Tuesday to Wednesday with the game at the Emirates kicking off at 7.45pm [Note: this game won’t be shown on live TV].

Then come two consecutive Monday night games with our trips to Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough both being selected for the irritating Monday Night Football slot. I’m sure those travelling to Teesside will appreciate the trip to Boro on a Monday night.

Finally, we finish off the month with a trip to Tottenham with the North London derby now being shown on Sky Sports at 4.30pm on Sunday 30th.

Some of the fixtures are subject to our participation in the Champions League but realistically this isn’t going to be an issue!
