Change Crystal Palace vs Hull back to Saturday 3pm

This petition had 6 supporters


The game between Crystal Palace and Hull in the penultimate week of the Premier League season was originally scheduled for a 3pm Saturday kick off. Many of us Hull supporters who spend 1000s of pounds following our club throughout the season have already booked accommodation and travel for the trip to London.

Now with less than a month to go the Premier League have ridiculously allowed Sky to move the game to a Sunday and a MIDDAY kick off, screwing over the plans loyal supporters of both sides but especially Hull fans who now have a 200 mile journey ahead of them! With this ridiculously early kick off, many will now not be able to attend especially those with children.

Not only will this mean 100s of people being forced to spend more money rebooking travel arrangements, the early kick means that with the first train from Hull to London arriving in central London at 11:33, most supporters will not even be able to make kick off!! 

Money is tight and hundreds of us simply cannot afford to change around plans like this or even miss what could be a crucial game of the club we love. 

The Premier League and Sky have shown their true colours here and shown exactly what they think of us and of loyal supporters across the country. It's genuine contempt and two fingers up to fans of both clubs.

This is yet another disgraceful example of supporters being exploited by the Premier League and Sky Sports and is surely not something that the Premier League sponsors such as Barclays, Carling, EA Sports and Tag Heuer would want to put their names to and be associated with.

To all Palace and Hull fans affected by this and for football fans who have been affected by similar disgraceful decisions. Please sign this and show the Premier League, Sky and the Premier League sponsors that we call for this game to be put back to the original kick off time.

Of course this affects Palace fans too and we're sure they have been put in similar situations the other way round. Any support here would be amazing.

FOOTBALL FOR SUPPORTERS, NOT TELEVISION

PREMIER LEAGUE, PLEASE RESPECT THE HULL AND PALACE SUPPORT AND PUT THE GAME BACK TO WHERE IT SHOULD BE.


Thanks for reading.
