Update Satellite TV dictating football fixtures - 15-April-2009, 23:10

April 15, 2009Satellite TV dictating football fixtures

by David Allen



There is no doubt that Sky Sports has made a big difference to the finances of the football clubs in the UK, but it seems that some people are not too pleased with the demands that TV is putting onto the clubs.

One such person is the Chairman of Sunderland Football Club, Niall Quinn.
He believes that there should be more consideration for travelling supporters, after the satellite TV schedules saw Sunderlands fixture with Portsmouth switch from Saturday afternoon to Monday evening.

Sunderland Football Club has complained to the FA about the changes to scheduled matches, but according to agreements with Sky and Setanta, football clubs cannot decline fixture rescheduling by the broadcasters.
Football clubs are paid well by the likes of Sky Sports and Setanta, but they also have to look after their fans.
