Three of Crystal Palace’s Premier League fixtures in the opening few months of the 2018/19 campaign have now been selected for the television treatment.
???? Fixture Changes ????

Roy Hodgson’s first Selhurst Park tie of the season against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool has been selected for screening by Sky Sports and they have now moved that game to the Monday evening slot. It kicks off at 8pm on August 20th.
Later that week, our trip to Watford and Vicarage Road has also been selected by Sky, so that naturally moves back a day to Sunday, August 26th and has been given an earlier 1.30pm kick-off.
Sky complete their trio of selections by picking up our trip to Dean Court to face Bournemouth. That game also gets shifted to Monday, October 1st and will kick-off at the usual 8pm time.
This is the first batch of Premier League TV fixtures for the new season but before anyone rushes out and makes plans, these matches, like others, remain subject to change owing to relevant European competition involvement.
It’s fair to say some Palace fans aren’t pleased.
I missed so many games last season because of this and wasn't going to renew my Season Ticket because of this. I already regret doing so.

There was me planning on a nice day in the sun to watch the Liverpool game and now I got to have more issues with an evening game.
