BOURNEMOUTH AND FOREST MATCHES MOVED FOR TV

6 December 2019

We can confirm that two of the Hatters' matches next month have been moved for television.

Firstly, the Emirates FA Cup third round trip to AFC Bournemouth will take place on Saturday 4th January, but will kick off at 5.31pm due to selection for international broadcast.

As with all 32 FA Cup third round matches taking place that weekend, the tie will start one minute later than it usually would as part of the Heads Up 'Take a Minute' campaign to raise awareness of the importance of looking after our mental health.

Ticket prices and a sales plan for this match will follow in the coming days.

In the event of a draw, the replay will take place at Kenilworth Road on Wednesday 15th January with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Secondly, the Sky Bet Championship fixture away at Nottingham Forest is among the latest batch of fixtures selected for live broadcast by Sky Sports, and as a result has been moved to Sunday 19th January.

The City Ground clash, originally scheduled for the previous day, will kick off at 12pm.

Due to its selection for live broadcast, there will be no stream of the action available on iFollow Hatters to overseas subscribers. Audio commentary from Simon Pitts will be available as usual, however, to subscribers and match pass purchasers at home and abroad.

We apologise to any supporters inconvenienced by this change of date and kick-off time, which is beyond the club’s control as part of the EFL’s broadcast contract with Sky.
