Newport County AFC wishes to make supporters aware of the following fixtures changes in light of the Clubs progress in the FA Cup Third Round and Dragons fixtures at Rodney Parade.
Original Date – Saturday 6th January – 3.00pm
New Date – Tuesday 23rd January 7.45pm
Original Date – Saturday 20th January – 3.00pm
New Date – Friday 19th January 7.45pm
Original Date – Friday 16th March – 7.45pm
New Date – Saturday 17th March - 3.00pm
The decision to move the Club's fixture against Crawley Town has been made following a request from the Dragons who are required to play their final European Champions Cup match on the same day and time as all other matches in the competition. This is similar to the request Newport County AFC made to the Dragons in relation to the final EFL match of the 2016/17 season against Notts County.
Having taken on board the feedback of supporters and the financial impact of moving a fixture from a Saturday afternoon to a Friday evening, the Club have agreed with Luton Town to revert the fixture on Friday 16th March back to its original date of Saturday 17th March. This match will kick off at 3pm prior to the final match of the Rugby Six Nations between Wales v France which starts at 5.00pm at the Principality Stadium.
In recognition of the short notice of fixture changes, the busy festive match period and the home Emirates FA Cup match against Leeds United in January, the Club will be launching a promotion for its match against Crawley Town on Friday 19th January.
