First four fixtures rescheduled for TV coverage

Written by Tom Easterby

Newcastle United’s first four Premier League fixtures of the 2018/19 season have been rescheduled after being selected for live television coverage.

The Magpies welcome Tottenham Hotspur to St. James’ Park on Saturday, 11th August – the opening day of the campaign. The game was due to kick-off at 3pm, but has now been brought forward to 12:30pm and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

United’s trip to newly-promoted Cardiff City the following weekend will also be shown on Sky Sports. That fixture at the Cardiff City Stadium was due to kick-off at 3pm, but has also now been brought forward to 12:30pm.

Rafa Benítez’s side then welcome Chelsea to Tyneside, but that game has now been moved back to be shown on Sky. It was set to kick off at 3pm on Saturday, 25th August, but will now take place on Sunday, 26th August, with kick-off set for 4pm.

And the trip to champions Manchester City has also been rearranged, as it will now be shown live on BT Sport. The game will remain on the same date – Saturday, 1st September – but will now kick-off at 5:30pm.
