Watford away – The Truth

With less than 24 hours until the public release to the 2019/2020 Premier League fixture list a leak has appeared on social media claiming to show week 1 of the Premier League fixtures.

In the screenshot shown above, it claims that West Ham will play Watford away at 3 pm on Saturday 10th August.

However, our sources who have seen the real fixture list have dismissed it as yet another fake by confirming that West Ham will not be playing Watford on the first week of the season.

The fixtures mostly chosen by computer are a closely guarded secret with clubs and press only receiving them an hour before the public do.  The Premier League will publicise the real fixture list tomorrow at 9 am.

Glenn Thompson, Technical Architect at Atos is the man in charge of scheduling the games and responsible for building footy fans’ excitement across the world every June and they have done so for 27 years collating and delivering football fixture schedules for the Premier League since its inaugural season.

  1. If true, I see the TV companies are showing the obvious teams. Surely there has to come a time when they give you the option to watch whichever game you want rather than suggesting fans are criminals for streaming their own team.

    Every other country seems to have the freedom to watch all Premier League games and yet we don’t. It’s our blimmin’ league!

    Sky now give a choice of all Championship games I believe. It’s time they did the same for the Premier League or perhaps the Premier League could give individual clubs the right to sell digital season tickets for all non televised games.

  2. Clubs find out an hour before the public but your sources already know we’re not playing Watford.
