When is the match?

  • The match will be held at St. James’ Park
  • It will start in the evening and kick-off at 8.00pm.
  • The game will take place on Saturday, October 17.

How can I watch it?

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The game will be one of the first to be shown as part of the new PPV Box Office clashes being rolled out by the Premier League.

In the new format, there will be no pundits or match-coverage and broadcasting will be begin just 10 minutes before kick-off.

All matches will be shown on either Sky or BT Sports.

But fans who do not have either platform will have to fork out £14.95 to watch the match.

This decision has caused outrage amongst fans who are furious that they’ll have to pay the fee to watch their teams play.

All proceeds after production costs will be given to the clubs.
