Premier League March fixtures

Sky released the first fixtures of March for the TV schedule last week, 5 weeks prior to the game. Aren't they  supposed to release the dates for all March fixtures at the same time? Very annoying as I'm trying to arrange my grandsons first visit.

@jaswebb1 I believe the PL recently, as in a few weeks ago changed the rules which meant that from the March fixtures going forward they will be announced only 5 weeks in advance, essentially pushing the picks later.

@SKY1992bf  I expect the Premier League have been dictated to by their Sky Sports paymasters as to when they make their picks

So they have missed the next 5 week deadline because of the fact that the PL, the broadcasters and the police have yet to agree on suitable times for the games to kick off.

 

Personally I believe the police priorities should be the main factor in deciding at least any times certain games can't be played and then the broadcasters should then just make do with that.

That makes a great point.

 

That weekend, England play Ireland in the 6 nations at Twickenham.

In the premiership, arsenal, Chelsea, crustal palace, and West ham all have home games

Indeed the problem is this disagreement they have that delays things just makes it really hard for fans (away fans in particular) to actually make plans and book  travel and perhaps overnight stays somewhere.

 

The PL really need to get a grip with these fixture announcements . they are meant to be trying to show the government they don't need an external regulator but situations like this just goes to show they do need one. The fact they arbitrarily decided to change the 6 week notice down to 5 weeks and today have missed that deadline is completely ludicrous
