About this deal

We support the Football Supporters Association and Chelsea Supporters Trust in opposing the principle of Premier League Football matches being played on Christmas Eve, this fixture change now impacts on our Boxing Day match. We will be seeking a direct meeting with the Premier League, alongside our colleagues at Chelsea Supporters Trust and the FSA. This move from the Premier League and the broadcasters is totally unacceptable. Our own club has now been hit with a ridiculous re-scheduling of a game in January that could now be played on any of three different dates with little notice as to which of the three, but our thoughts are very much with the supporters of Wolves and Chelsea. The loyalty to their clubs is now being pushed to a limit that is just so wrong.

Plans will already have been made for people to spend time with family and friends, some travelling long distances; The Newcastle United Supporters Trust oppose Football matches being played on Xmas Eve. There have been no football matches on Xmas Eve for 28 years and it shouldn’t start now! Supporter organisations across the FSA’s Premier League Network have united in opposition to the decision made by the league and Sky Sports to show Wolves vs Chelsea on Christmas Eve 2023 – the first time such a scheduling decision has been made since 1995. Newcastle United Supporters Club are disappointed by the Premier League and broadcaster decision to host a fixture on Christmas Eve for the first time in 28 years. Football fans love the festive fixture list, but Christmas Eve has for a long time been a protected day without games.Where the item can be personalised with a message over several lines, you don't actually need to use all of the lines. However, it may not then be possible to place the text exactly in the centre of the item (eg. where just 3 lines are used out of 4). The font size used will remain the same as the example in the listing's picture The cost of living crisis continues to affect us all, and increasing the demands on loyal fans from both Wolves and Chelsea at a time of year that provides additional challenges is and should have been avoidable. The Premier League has not held a fixture on this date for 28 years; why does it need to do so now? Football supporters have so much inconvenience to deal with over a season with fixtures moved to dates and times which makes travel arrangements difficult but to schedule a fixture on Christmas Eve, when families are coming together is one that is very difficult to accept. Christmas Eve is a day for family and friends. A day for wrapping presents. Preparing food. Making time for special ones. There will be many upset families, with people having to choose between their love and unwavering loyal support of their team, and their children’s excitement at the arrival of Father Christmas. We know money and TV schedules fund the quality of games we watch each week, but have the SKY people no heart at all? And that’s before you factor in the staff at these clubs – and the TV crews – having to work, and the difficulty of getting to the match with public transport winding down for the holidays. (Yes, they manage to do it.) And don’t the players have families, too?

Christmas Eve should be a time for the whole football family spend with their own families and enjoy the Christmas period together. There are also the added issues of reduced public transport for those attending both as fans and in a working capacity. With no obvious signs that this trend is going to change, it’s now time that dialogue between broadcasters, clubs and supporters becomes an obligation when considering any fixture change – and that this becomes a feature of any future broadcasting deal. Christmas Eve has been left alone by the decision-makers inside television for 28 years – and we call for that to continue. Common sense should prevail.We join our counterparts across the country in calling for a re-think regarding the Wolves v Chelsea fixture. It’s not us this time, but next time it could be. Hammers United, representing 20,000 West Ham fans, pledges its full support to the FSA in its campaign against football being played on Christmas Eve.
