4 Arsenal fixtures rescheduled after being chosen for live TV

By on February 27, 2018

An announcement on Arsenal.com has confirmed that four of our fixtures in April have been rescheduled after being chosen for broadcast on live TV.

We start the month by welcoming Southampton to the Emirates and that match has been moved to Monday the 9th and will kick off at 8pm after being chosen by Sky Sports.

The following weekend we’ll make the long trip to the north east to take on Newcastle United and the game at St James’ Park will now be shown on Sky Sports at 1.30pm on Sunday 15th.

We’re back on Sky Sports ‘Monday night Football’ on the 23rd when we welcome London rivals West Ham to the Emirates before travelling to Manchester the following Sunday to take on United at Old Trafford on Sunday 29th, kicking off at 4.30pm.

The United game could yet be moved again if they get through to the semi-finals of the Champions League while a new date for our trip to Leicester City is yet to be decided after the original March 17th tie was postponed.
