Championship Returns, Details as they emerge

Post by YorkshireSquare » Fri Jun 05, 2020 5:58 pm

The EFL have just announced the kick off times announced for Championship games once the season resumes.

Friday: 6pm and 8pm
Saturday: 12.30pm, 3pm and 5.30pm
Sunday: 12pm
Tuesday: 5pm, 6pm and 8pm
Wednesday: 5pm, 6pm and 8pm


No details yet on fixture list, venues or broadcasts. But given the staggered times above I would suggest as many as possible will be shown live on TV.

Season-ticket holders at Championship clubs will be able to watch their team's remaining regular-season games online, the EFL has announced.

Access, via the iFollow service, will be determined by the club with which the supporter holds the season ticket.

It "may be in lieu of a refund or part of a wider package as determined by each individual club".

The arrangement includes any of the 30 regular-season games involving their club being shown by Sky Sports.

None of the remaining 108 games will be shown on free-to-air television, while watching a stream of an individual Championship fixture via iFollow will cost a non-season ticket holder £10.

That is a total of 12

But I assume that that doesn't represent a single round with each match having a different kick-off time, but two rounds with some matches kicking off at the same time.

Just waiting for them to announce the times that Leeds will play to best suit Sky

I beleive first week will be one round played;

Friday: 6pm and 8pm
Saturday: 12.30pm, 3pm and 5.30pm
Sunday: 12pm


Followed by two rounds a week, one played on the weekend, one midweek;

Friday: 6pm and 8pm
Saturday: 12.30pm, 3pm and 5.30pm
Sunday: 12pm

Tuesday: 5pm, 6pm and 8pm
Wednesday: 5pm, 6pm and 8pm

Sky Sports will show 30 of 108 remaining Sky Bet Championship fixtures, a live goals show for every matchday, plus exclusive coverage of all 15 EFL play-off games across the three divisions.

Club season ticket holders will be given access to all Sky Sports live games involving their team through the iFollow online platform. They will also be given access to their teams' non-broadcast games, while non-season ticket holders will be able to purchase non-broadcast games for £10.

Although expected, that is going to be tough physically.

Now they can pick what they wan't to show I'd be surprised if they didn't cover all Leeds and West Brom's games.

Found this on the EFL site
Championship Season End Date

Following further consultation with EFL Championship Clubs this week, the season will still commence with match 38 on the weekend of 20 June, with match 39 taking place on Saturday 27 June. This minor amendment to the schedule will result in the last match of the regular season being on the midweek of 21 and 22 July with the Championship Play-off Final on either Sunday 2 or Monday 3 August.
So not going the the usual practice of having all final round matches being played at the same time.

It'll be interesting to see how they ensure that no team gets an advantage of knowing how a place rival has done before playing their own match.

Maybe we should arrange a practice game with Sheff Utd?

Didn't think the EFL had approved friendlies yet, Premier League certainly has.

Be good to have warm up and under Premier League teams teams can travel up to 90 minutes so plenty of options for us.

Sounding like games to be played in the same order, so preliminary fixtures and dates would be...

38 Cardiff City A 19th/20th/21st June
39 Fulham H 26th/27th/28th June
40 Luton Town H 30th June/1st July
41 Blackburn A 3rd/4th/5th July
42 Stoke City H 7th/8th July
43 Swansea City A 10th/11th/12th July
44 Barnsley H 14th/15 July
45 Derby County A 17th/18th/19th July
46 Charlton H 21st/22nd July
