It’s been confirmed that two of Arsenal’s three Premier League fixtures in March have been given new kick-off slots.
The Gunners’ trip to Fulham, selected for broadcast in the UK by Sky Sports, will now take place on Sunday 12th March at 2pm. It had originally been scheduled for Saturday.
A week later, we’ll host Crystal Palace. This match won’t be on TV but has been shifted back 23 hours because of our Europa League commitments on the Thursday before.
It’s worth bearing in mind that should Arsenal progress in the FA Cup the Palace game will give way to a quarter-final on that weekend.
The home match with Bournemouth on 4th March stays as originally scheduled; a rare 3pm Saturday start!
For some unknown reason, our home match with Everton, postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, is yet to be given a new slot.
