Take a look at when live games will be selected

21 June 2017

The release of the 2017/18 fixture list has undoubtedly got Bees fans looking ahead to their favourite ties of the new campaign.

Getting ahead of the game and planning long away trips in advance is a great idea, as long as fans remind themselves that fixtures are subject to change at any point.

The Club will give as much warning as possible when it comes to fixture changes, which are most often to do with being selected for live television coverage. If this is the case, the EFL and broadcast partner Sky Sports have committed to a period of five weeks notice before any matches are switched.

The table below gives an indication of the dates when these decisions should be taken. From 23 February, a minimum five-week rolling selection commences for matches up to and including the penultimate weekend. It is also worth noting, clubs will be notified of selections for the final day following the completion of the penultimate round of matches.
