Fans deliver verdict on lifting 3pm live TV ban in Britain


Hammers fans want theĀ  TV ban on 3pm Saturday kick offs lifted permanently.

Live coverage of every remaining game remaining this season will be shown by broadcasters on the most crowded live TV agenda ever in this country.

That’s only come about as a result of the ban being lifted abd right now it only applies to games on the country of origin which has always seemed more than a little unfair.

Although there’s nothing better than being inside the stadium there are many because of the distances involved, their ages or cost of games and travelling who find it impossible.

And many of those factors may be contributing to the latest CandH poll where we asked the question “Should the 3pm ban be lifted forever.”

And as the say in the House of Commons the ayes had it by a large majority with 579 (73.24) voting yes and 202 (26.76) giving the idea a thumbs down
