Midweek kick off times

Submitted by el Queso Grande on Friday, 4 August 2017


Can a club official please answer this?

The Northern League recently announced that "A revised FA rule also means that from next season midweek games should start at 7.45pm.  However, clubs can apply to the league to have their midweek games kick-off at 7.30pm".

Sunderland RCA currently have two midweek home league fixtures arranged:

Tuesday, 8 August 2017 - 7:45pm v Penrith

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 - 7:30pm v Team Northumbria

It has been the norm in recent seasons to agree to Penrith having the extra travelling time by having a 7:45 kick off, so has Sunderland RCA applied for 7:30 to be the usual time for midweek evening fixtures?

Yes Keith, RCA have applied for 7:30pm kick-offs this season. The Penrith home match is, as you say, 7:45pm to allow for travelling and the Marske away match is 7:45pm as stated on their website.

The Team Northumbria home match is 7:30pm kick-off as things stand.

I shall do my best to keep up to speed with these 7:30/7:45pm kick-off times this season! smiley
