Kick-Off Times

2016/17 season. The new season is scheduled to begin on the weekend of 20-21 August, with the first division ending on 21 May, and the second division going on a month longer.


Kick-off times are usually not confirmed until three or four weeks before the matches take place, and once known the details will be published on this page. However, these are liable to change at short notice and we strongly recommend you check with the club if you are hoping to attend a game.

Match tickets are also on sale from our Ticket Office (see link above) as and when they become available.

As in previous seasons, first division kick-off times are being spaced out so that as a general rule no two matches coincide. A special timetable has been devised for August in order to avoid the intense heat, but as from September there will normally be one match on Friday night and one on Monday, with four games spaced out between 1.00 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. on Saturday, and four more on Sunday between mid-day and 8.30 p.m. Only one match will be shown on an open TV programme, with a national channel usually broadcasting one fixture between two of the lesser ranked teams at some point over the weekend. All the rest will be shown on Pay Per View channels. Second division matches are mainly scheduled for Saturday or Sunday afternoon, but can take place any time between Friday and Monday.

During the last two weekends of the season, all games with anything at stake will be scheduled to take place at the same time. Kick-off times will not therefore be set for those fixtures until closer to the date.
