Five Man United 2024/25 Premier League fixture changes confirmed, including huge game



| Last Updated:


There have been five changes to Manchester United’s fixture list for the 2024/25 Premier League campaign.

The Premier League fixtures for the upcoming campaign were finalised last week, but as expected, TV schedules have impacted the early stages of that provisional list.

United’s second game of the campaign, away to Brighton, is the first game to be moved from its original Saturday 15:00 BST slot.

The clash remains on the original date of 24 August, but it will now kick off earlier at 12:30 BST and will be screened live on TNT Sports.

Meanwhile, the season’s first encounter between United and Liverpool, taking place at Old Trafford, has been moved from Saturday 31 August, to Sunday 1 September and will be shown live on Sky Sports. However, the kick-off time is still to be confirmed.

After that game, there will be a two-week international break. The Reds’ first three Premier League games afterwards have all been selected for live TV coverage in the UK.

A visit to newly promoted Southampton on Saturday 14 September will be on TNT Sports in the 12:30 BST slot, while the journey to London to face Crystal Palace a week later will be set for an early-evening kick-off at 17:30 BST – live on Sky Sports.

Finally, the club’s home clash against Tottenham Hotspur will also be affected by TV changes. Old Trafford will host the encounter on Sunday 29 September, one day later than it was provisionally listed, and the action will get underway on Sky Sports at 16:30 BST.

Erik ten Hag will be hoping for a positive start to the campaign after his contract extension was confirmed earlier this week.

“I am very pleased to have reached an agreement with the club to continue working together,” he said. “Looking back at the past two years, we can reflect with pride on two trophies and many examples of progression from where we were when I joined.

“However, we must also be clear that there is still lots of hard work ahead to reach the levels expected of Manchester United, which means challenging for English and European titles.”
