Did I miss an announcement that it was being moved to 3pm Easter friday. Who thought that was a goox idea. No wonder they're offering an extra free ticket to Sth's

Sorry but this works for me gives us the rest of the weekend free??...

I normally book the whole weekend out for every game anyway always have Saturday at 3pm is a luxury these days

When did we last have a Good Friday home game, I can't recall one?

Its a bank holiday, much better than Easter Sunday, public transport is usually ok as well. We could get a really good crowd - would help if performances had improved...

Pleased for those it suits, but for me its just one step more towards games any day of the week, at any time.

And just another reason not to renew my season ticket next year and just buy individual games.

It's not traditionally a bank holiday in Leicester, but i guess that's being very old school.

Simon, almost every LCFC game has been moved this season. Something like 11 of the last 12 moved for TV. 8 games at Saturday 3pm this season of which 4 have been at home. No Saturday 3pm games in February or March. Potentially 2 in April but the TV picks haven't been announced yet.

I think it's a great idea. Starts the holiday break off nicely.

Of all the many things we have to worry about this wouldn't be high on my list.

Do I prefer games on a Satuday - yes - but when it's a holiday weekend? In earlier times this would have been perfect - rugby Friday leaving the rest of the weekend free. I would certainly think that the majority of STH's will be broadly in favour of this.

It is something they thought was worth trying, the schools will be closed so the kids can make it. People could ask for a day or half day off work I suppose.
