City have been selected for televised games on no fewer than eight occasions during the first four months of the 2010/11 season.
Most notably, the Blues will now feature in the very first match of the new Premier League campaign with the curtain-raiser away to Tottenham now kicking off at 12.45pm on Saturday, August 14.
The first home game has also been re-scheduled with the visit of Roy Hodgson’s Liverpool now taking place on Monday, August 23 with an 8pm kick-off.
Europa League commitments have accounted for the third match of the campaign, too, with the trip to Sunderland put back 24 hours to Sunday, August 29 – the 3pm kick off remains the same.
In September, the only change is an earlier kick-off for the visit of Chelsea, with the match now starting at 12.45pm on Saturday, September 25.
Sunday, October 3 is the date for the visit of Newcastle United with the match now beginning at 1.30pm.
A revised trip to Ian Holloway’s Blackpool (Sunday October 17, 4pm) will allow City fans to make a weekend of the trip to the coast, while Arsenal’s visit to the City of Manchester Stadium will now take place on Sunday, October 24 with a 4pm start.
The final two changes as things stand is the rare home midweek Manchester derby between City and United now kicking off slightly later on Wednesday, November 10 at 8pm and the trip to Fulham moving forward to Sunday, November 21 at 4pm.
