To be honest last nights game would get football stopped it was so bad .

I’ll lie on the couch with the Tranny pressed against my ear , it’ll make it more exciting and seem like the 80s again .
First football game I ever took in on my own was doing that when I was 3. Living in Oxfordshire there wasn’t anywhere to go see games live really

European Professional Football Leagues memorandum of understanding with UEFA which ends on 31st May 2022

While it applies to Top Division games in the past it also covered National Cup games

https://www.uefa.com/MultimediaFile...aorg/Leagues/02/55/15/63/2551563_DOWNLOAD.pdf

3.8. Subject to Clause 3.9, to ensure that EPFL Member Leagues abstain from scheduling top division matches on dates which are reserved for UEFA club competition matches, in accordance with the UEFA Match Calendar.

3.9. Without prejudice to the generality of Clause 3.8, EPFL Member Leagues may be allowed to schedule matches on dates reserved for UEFA club competitions when no other date could be found under the following exceptions:

Top division matches, which had to be postponed due to force majeure or to other reasons beyond the reasonable control of the concerned EPFL Member League, may be rescheduled on dates reserved for UEFA club competition matches, upon agreement with UEFA, when it appears that no real alternative exists.

If such matches are not to be broadcast domestically and/or internationally, no restriction applies as to their kick-off time.

If such matches are to be broadcast domestically and/or internationally, they shall be scheduled in such a way that they are terminated at least 15 minutes before the kickoff of the UEFA club competition matches, subject to UEFA’s approval on a case by case basis.

The following non-exhaustive list of circumstances are considered to be “out of the control” of the concerned league:
 Adverse weather conditions;
 Strike and civil unrest;
 Sudden unavailability of a stadium;
 Decision of a competent state authority to move a match;
 Participation of clubs in the FIFA Club World Cup;
 When UEFA itself reschedules matches at dates which are reserved for domestic competitions; and
 If there are no alternative dates available for a club to meet its fixture commitments in order to avoid that a player has to play 2 matches within 72 hours due to the scheduling of a competition sanctioned by FIFA, UEFA and a National Association.

In such cases, the UEFA Administration must be consulted at least 3 days before the decision to reschedule the domestic match in question has to be taken by the concerned EPFL Member League with a view to coming to an agreement on the date and time for such match.

UEFA shall consider requests for kick-off time slots overlapping with UEFA competition matches on a case-by-case basis and undertakes to strive to find a positive solution, depending on all circumstances of each individual case. Specifically, the Western European time zone is a factor to be taken into consideration for the granting of such requests.

TV viewing figures for this years Scottish Cup must be at a masive low.

Tucked away on a minor sports channel, the Scottish game is f.ucking itself up even more.

Farcical - and lessens the attractiveness of the competition.

Ah the good old days watching the game live on Ceefax
And not getting the final score up on the page as a result until about 9pm on a Saturday or 2am on the midweek games!!
As I live in deepest Devon, they didn’t give Scottish results on the news midweek unless it was big match, so until it was confirmed on there, I couldn’t be sure!!!:eek:

Tonight Pacific Quay CSC has 2 championship teams following on from their shambolic covering of the Sheep v Doonhammers game.

I just hope I can get Only Connect and University Challenge somewhere else!!

BBC Scotland and Premier Sports just lessens the coverage/profile of the competition IMO. De-values it. Embarrassing. Backward step - but in-line with most things in Scottish football i suppose :(

Our game on Saturday, the picture either lost completely or distorted on at least 4 times in the second half.

Yesterday, the BBC lost their main camera and covered the game for a spell from a low down angle behind the goal. Farcical beyond belief.

And that struggled to be a sell out.rsc’s got any amount they asked for,tickets were still on sale the day before the game
Nearly 50 quid a ticket didn't help in shifting the tickets quicker

No problem for me on Saturday.

Setanta GB went bust which was set-up by Setanta when they started securing UK right like the SPL and later the EPL

They went bust due failing to pay the money owed to the EPL

Setanta itself survived and now called Eir Sport

Premier Sport was set up in the UK to replace Setanta GB was owned by whose running Setanta

RTV and a very short trip abroad if I can't make a game. I've got the world wide package at £17 a month. Well worth it if you don't go to away matches.
It hasn’t been announced yet. Hopefully it will be on, but as stated in the OP, it wasn’t on anywhere last time the game clashed with CL matches.

They’ll make an announcement after a few more days of public sale. Sales will slump if they were to announce early.
That doesn’t really make any sense from the broadcasters point of view. They would want it announced as soon as possible to maximise advertising and increase subscriber numbers.
