 Man City v Liverpool
Topic Originator: Par

Why is this game on live on BBC 1 at 15.30 today. I thought game were not allowed to be broadcast live on a Saturday impinging on other game that have the traditional kick off time.

Our game’s being broadcast today at 3 as are many others. This was a government law that was removed due to Covid I’m sure.

I think this rule was set it up in relation to English Premiership games, not cup competitions.

The following answer is copied and pasted from the Paddypower website:


“Well, it’s all thanks to a rule buried within the blackout regulations. The 3pm ban only comes into force when 50 per cent or more of the top two domestic leagues are being played at that time. A key life lesson there, always read the small print!

As the Championship games take place on Good Friday and Easter Monday while there are just three Premier League fixtures – Manchester United v Norwich, Southampton v Arsenal and Watford v Brentford – slated for 3pm on Saturday, Manchester City v Liverpool can be broadcast on BBC One.

The FA Cup semi-final tie has to be played at that time due to Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Manchester United taking place on Tuesday, while a lack of direct rail links to London for fans from the north west means earlier and later kick-off times were dismissed.”
