We swapped for 9am & 1743. Non refundable tickets but free to change times. Phew. Now, do any pubs open before 11 or 12 on a Sunday in Leicester?

Today’s announcement by Leicester City Football Club to move our opening day Premier League fixture at The King Power Stadium by 24 hours to Sunday has caused an entirely avoidable issue for supporters of both clubs.

Fans of Brentford – and no doubt Leicester City – have already spent a considerable amount of money on non-refundable travel for the game. This was done in good faith, with the fixture not selected for UK broadcast and no other issues communicated. Their frustration and anger is understandable.

We understand Leicester City informed the Premier League prior of a potential event clash. This would have meant their opening fixture could have been away from the city. Yet, and what we cannot yet fathom, is that the Premier League chose until after the published fixtures to approve an alternative date and only confirmed the rescheduling five days after the original fixture announcement.

This is completely unacceptable and smacks of unprofessionalism from the Premier League, and demonstrates a total disregard for loyal fans who have spent their hard-earned money only to find it wasted. We believe a mechanism for affected supporters to claim reimbursement should be offered by the Premier League.

So Leicester informed the PL, they ignored it.

According to @hobbsy the Police get to check the fixtures before they're published.

So, if they weren't fussed, who was?

This falls full square into Leicester FC f***-up.

PC Police Plod is too thick to concern himself with carnivals.

Why is it Leicester's fault if they told the Pl of the carnival according to their statement in rebus post #118
LCFC's statement reads:

Leicester City’s opening Premier League fixture of the new season at home to Brentford will now take place on Sunday 7 August (2pm kick-off).​
- City’s opening fixture of the 2022/23 Premier League season moves
- The Foxes will now host Brentford on Sunday 7 August at 2pm
- 2022/23 Premier League fixtures were revealed last Thursday
The fixture was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday 6 August, but will now move to the Sunday, with a slightly earlier kick-off time due to the annual Caribbean Carnival taking place in the city on the Saturday.​
City’s fixture list for the new 2022/23 Premier League season was revealed last Thursday morning, with Arsenal, Southampton, Chelsea and Manchester United also among the first few opponents for Brendan Rodgers’ team.​
All fixtures remain subject to change at broadcast selections, which will be reflected on LCFC.com.​

I don't see anywhere where they mention informing the PL before the fixtures were published (or any other time for that matter)

Yeah, don't know why I wasted my time with rebus' post, it was @hobbsy unsourced assertion that LCFC informed the PL.

How much is insurance mate? Not worth it for you even for £1 as if you did ever miss a match your works death in service payout will cover the train fare!!

Presumably if trains are cancelled due to engineering or a strike you get a refund insurance or not?

I've always disliked them since the 4-2 League Cup game (Rowan Alexandra scored on his debut? Plus Mrs WB forgot her glasses and couldn't see the goal at the other end of the pitch) back in God know when. This another reason to continue my dislike for them plus Maddison is a tool!!

£45.50 returns available on Sunday. Not sure about parking....
Parking at the main shopping centre was reasonably priced.

2 up and we missed the chance to go 3 up.
4 goals in the last 9 minutes?
Horrible night.

I have a season ticket for Chertsey Town next season with over 5,000 Taps for the bees.

Enough said.

Indeed......... :(

Mentioned on a different thread, but it's only recently that I realised that this game, and the 3-1 up, with 8 minutes to go, lost 5-3 at Gillingham FA Cup game, were only 8 months apart!!
(Gillingham: Jan '84; Leicester: September '84)
Was at both, and the scars still haven't healed............ :oops::banghead:😫:eek:

Lightning did strike twice.
