The EFL and broadcast partner Sky Sports again committed to give clubs and supporters at least five weeks’ notice ahead of any EFL matches being selected for live television coverage. The EFL has outlined the dates when any changes will be announced to the public via the EFL’s digital and social channels. The dates will ensure any fixture changes are announced with a minimum of five weeks’ notice of the fixture taking place in order to give EFL supporters as much time as is possible to allow for any alterations to travel plans that may be required.
A minimum of three weeks’ notice was put in place for the penultimate weekend of the season in order to ensure the most appropriate matches are picked for broadcast.
