Sky Sports and BT Sport confirm festive TV schedule including no games on Christmas Eve – The Independent

Sky Sports and BT Sport have revealed the televised fixture schedule for the festive period – and there are no games set for Christmas Eve.

The decision not to hold a fixture on December 24 is a significant victory for fans with a number of supporters’ groups voicing strong opposition to the proposed plans.

The first Manchester derby of the season, at Old Trafford on December 10, is the headline fixture while the Merseyside derby is scheduled for the same day kicking off at 2.15pm.

Arsenal’s match with Liverpool at the Emirates will take place on Friday December 22.
