Hello.
Do we allready know what dates we are at home in the champions league ?
When i look at the fixture calendar there are some on Tuesdays and some on Wednesdays or is there something that i have misunderstood.
Thanks in advance.

All anyone knows so far is the midweeks when the games will be played.
Specific details of when we’re home and away plus whether games are on Tuesday or Wednesday will be confirmed after the group stage draw on 25th August.

We were drawn against Derby (if they still exist), Grimsby, and Mansfield in the Papa Johns Group stage. Hopefully they dont schedule the gamesat the same night as a champions league game like they have done the past few seasons. Even the night after/before would be better.

May also depend who we are ‘paired’ with to prevent fixture clashes, probably liverpool again. The Met will probably want Spurs and Chelsea paired for similar reasons

The pairings are done by the broadcasters in order to maximise viewing numbers. We’ve been paired with Liverpool for the last couple of seasons because BT wanted the scousers and the rags playing on different nights (not an issue this season of course). Same reason that Real Madrid and Barcelona will never be paired - Spanish broadcasters want one on Tuesday and the other on Wednesday.
I don’t think police have much say in it but it’s UEFA protocol anyway that games in the same city on any given date should be avoided if possible. Spurs and Chelsea may end up being paired and playing on the same nights but one will be at home when the other is away.
