Aston Villa Get Back-to-Back Friday Night Switch

Catching up on some Aston Villa business, a couple of fixtures are being given the Friday night Sky TV treatment, with both the forthcoming Queens Park Rangers and Bolton Wanderers games being brought forward a day from their Saturday slots.

The fixture against QPR at Loftus Road, originally scheduled for Saturday 27th October at 3pm, will now be played on Friday 26th October in a 7.45pm kick-off.

Then, the following week, the Villa Park clash with Bolton Wanderers will also switch from Saturday 3rd November at 3pm to Friday 2nd November at 7.45pm.

In addition, if you didn’t already know, the forthcoming midweek fixtures against Rotherham United (Sept 18) and Preston North End (Oct 2) are available on Sky’s Red Button.

  1. My 9-year-old has a season ticket. My 9 year-old loves Saturday afternoon at 3. If he went to a 19:45 kick-off he would be spark out at the end of the game, I’d have to carry him to the car and he wouldn’t get to bed until gone 11. Do you think they will offer us a refund?
