FIVE of Sunderland’s Premier League fixtures have been rearranged for live television coverage.
Sunderland will first be on television when Liverpool visit the Stadium of Light on Saturday, September 15, with the game now taking place at the later kick-off time of 5.30pm for live broadcast on ESPN.
The trip to Manchester City on Saturday, October 6 will also have a new kick-off time, a 12.45pm start to be shown on Sky Sports.
Sunderland’s other televised games are all on Sky Sports too, starting with the Wear-Tyne derby tussle against Newcastle which has been put back 24 hours to Sunday, October 21 (kick-off 1.30pm).
The Black Cats’ game at Fulham has also been moved to a Sunday, with Martin O’Neill’s side now heading to Craven Cottage on Sunday, November 18 (kick-off 4pm).
Finally, West Brom’s game at the Stadium of Light will now take place on Sunday, November 25 (kick-off 1.30pm).
However, should Liverpool reach the group stages of the Europa League, the clash with the Baggies would revert back to Saturday, November 24 with a 12.45pm kick-off.
If the game does take place on the Sunday though, then QPR’s visit to Wearside will move back 24 hours to Wednesday, November 28.
