Premier League fans have penned a letter to Sky chiefs in an attempt to get them to scrap plans for a Christmas Eve kick-off between Arsenal and Liverpool.

While Boxing Day football has become a British tradition, potential plans for a Christmas Eve kick-off between Arsenal and Liverpool this year have really set the cat among the pigeons.

Supporters of all 20 Premier League clubs have written a letter to Sky in an attempt to get them not to keep their ‘Super Sunday’, which just so happens to fall on the 24 December this year.

“This is wrong and no fixtures should be scheduled for this day,” said the joint letter.

“Supporters will be faced with the unenviable task of deciding between family, friends and loved ones and any pre-existing plans for this time of year and continuing their loyalty and support for their club.

“This must not be allowed to happen, not this season and not in future seasons. We don’t want this to be the ghost of Christmas future.”

The clash was previously set to kick-off on 23 December and moving it to the next day could severely affect thousands of fans’ Christmases.

For starters, having a tonne of Liverpool fans in London for Christmas Eve doesn’t sound like a good idea at all. However, Sky also need to take into account that trains won’t be running as normal and they don’t run at all on the day itself. Therefore, if something goes wrong, fans might not get to see their loved ones on Christmas Day.

As the letter says, this forces many to choose between supporting their team during a huge fixtures and staying put with their loved ones.

It’s a risky move and not one I’ve heard a single fan speak in favour of.

Hopefully, Sky decide to listen to the supporters and keep it on 23 December.
