EFL/Sky Sports - Rescheduling Fixtures Fans Forum

Post by StevenageRanger » Wed Mar 15, 2017 3:59 pm

Just see this posted on another forum. Do you know if we have anyone attending?

The EFL are offering fans the chance to listen to and engage with the EFL and Sky Sports.

This evening event is interactive and will open up a number of opportunities for supporter debate.

The backdrop to this events is the new joint commitment by the EFL and Sky Sports which focuses on ensuring minimal disruption for fans with regards to the rescheduling of fixtures for TV.

The EFL also considers it important to proactively engage with supporters on a number of matters relating to match officials, recent changes to the Laws of the Game, introduction of the new Match Officials Select Group 2, and the perception of referees and their assistants within the EFL.

The London Fan Forum session will be run as follows:

Venue: Sky Central, Grant Way, Isleworth, TW7 5QD
Date: Monday 20th March - 6.30pm arrival, 10pm finish (approx.)
Refreshments: Complimentary food and refreshments available
Guests: EFL, SKY Sports, Chris Foy (PGMOL) and special guest.

This is very interesting. The problem is that at the moment Sky are not allowed to show live matches at 3pm on Saturday so must show them at all the annoying times that we have railed against. The only way to "minimise disruption" is by giving longer notice of switching games. However, we still lose a lot of our Saturday games which most of us prefer.

I can't attend the function but would love to know why we are on so often. Surely they'll lay off us a bit next season ?
