Arsenal confirm festive period fixture changes for TV coverage

Arsenal have confirmed changes to seven fixtures during the festive period, each receiving fresh kick-off slots, allowing for TV coverage.

The game against newly promoted Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday, December 5, has seen a 30-minute shift in the kick-off time and is now slated for 8.15pm.

The subsequent trip to Aston Villa on Saturday, December 9, has also been rescheduled, with the match now set to kick off at 5.30pm.

Saturday’s home clash against Brighton & Hove Albion has seen a calendar shift and is now scheduled to kick off at 2pm on Sunday, December 17.

Unfortunately for supporters, the Brighton fixture will not be televised in the United Kingdom, and the calendar alteration comes as a result of the visitors’ Europa League commitments.

Approaching the festive season, Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool, initially slated to kick off at 3pm on Saturday, December 23, has also undergone a slight adjustment, with the match now expected to begin at 5.50pm.

The clash with West Ham United, previously scheduled for Boxing Day, has been shifted to Thursday, December 28, with a new kick-off time of 8.15pm.

The trip to Fulham on Saturday, December 30, has also been shifted to New Year’s Eve with kick-off time slated for 2pm.

The final tweak to the Arsenal fixture list for the festive period sees the home clash against Crystal Palace, initially scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, January 13, postponed by a week.

The alteration comes as part of the Premier League’s winter break plans, with the Palace clash now scheduled for 12.30pm on Saturday, January 20.
