Apparently according media articles BT Sport have the rights to to cover the football Conference from next season -- expect a few Luton Town games.
Finally some proper football...... fingers crossed we'll see a few Cambridge Utd away games (I don't want the home fixtures moved about too much!)
Fixtures and other announcements from Football Conference expected 11am on Wednesday 3rd July
Looking forward to that. I am hoping BT involvement will bring some much needed cash and exposure to the Conference.
Not sure about cash as I don't think they made too much from previous tv deal so would imagine that BT wouldn't have had to bid very high. Anyway no matter how much money is thrown at football clubs they always seem to waste it.
The Football Conference and BT Sport have agreed a two-year deal for the new channels to show 30 live matches a season from the Conference Premier.
BT Sport will host live broadcasts from the grounds for 25 league matches, plus both legs of the play-off semis and the Promotion Final at Wembley, from the start of the 2013-14 season in August.
The following have been selected for LIVE broadcast by BT Sport….
Cambridge United v FC Halifax Town (Saturday, 10th August) will be re-scheduled and screened live by BT Sport at 12 noon on Sunday, 11th August.
Hyde FC v Grimsby Town scheduled on Monday, 26th August will now kick-off at 17.30hrs for live broadcast by BT Sport.
There is still one fixture from the first eight rounds of fixtures that is being negotiated. It is possible this match may be selected from the games on Saturday, 31st August 2013.
Luton Town v Grimsby Town scheduled for Saturday, 7th September will now kick-off at 17.30hrs for live broadcast by BT Sport.
Wrexham v Luton Town scheduled for Saturday, 14th September will be brought for to 19.45hrs on Friday, 13th September for live broadcast by BT Sport.
I'm goign to be getting up early to get to the 1st game of the season then....
Luton 2 weeks in a row seems a bit odd, but I guess we are going to have to get used to seeing Luton and Grimsby for the rest of the season.
