The Premier League has made changes to Arsenal’s fixture schedule for March, primarily to facilitate live television coverage across the UK.

This reshuffling includes three of Arsenal’s matches.

The changes kick off with Arsenal hosting Brentford at the Emirates Stadium. Originally slated for a regular afternoon start, this match will now commence at 5:30 pm on Saturday, March 9, moved for a primetime audience on Sky Sports.

The following weekend, on March 16, sees a significant fixture as Chelsea make the short journey across London to face Arsenal. This crucial clash has been moved to an earlier kick-off time of 12:30 pm, with TNT Sports handling the broadcast. It’s a change that underscores the derby’s importance, though there’s a caveat: should Chelsea progress in the FA Cup, fans could see this match rescheduled again.

March’s fixtures conclude with a highly anticipated showdown against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, March 31. Slated for a 4:30 pm start, this match will be showcased on Sky Sports.

Live television selections for Arsenal’s matches have been finalised up until the end of March. However, the ever-present disclaimer applies: all fixtures are subject to change.
