Clubs in the EFL have a big decision to make regarding kick-off times as clubs look to accommodate supporters wanting to watch England vs France.
Gareth Southgate’s side are due to take on Les Bleus in the World Cup quarter-finals with a 7pm kick-off UK time.
With a full schedule of Championship, League One and League Two fixtures planned for this weekend, such a high-profile match has created something of a scheduling conflict.
Barring a clash between Crawley and Hartlepool on Friday night and two Championship fixtures of QPR vs Burnley and Watford vs Hull on Sunday, the other 33 EFL fixtures are all scheduled for Saturday.
With fans set to be tasked with travelling home from 3pm kick-offs and rushing to be back for the 7pm kick-off for the England match, teams have been given special dispensation to amend their kick-off times providing that both clubs agree to the alteration.
Several clubs have taken up that option to tweak their kick-off times in order to allow fans to get back for the World Cup clash.
Here are the kick-off times for Saturday’s EFL fixtures.
