7.45pm Kick Offs 20:49 - Sep 29 with 1577 viewsMetal_Hacker

Anyone else think it’s weird ?

Why not 7.30pm or 8pm ?

Is there a reason I’m missing ?

Almost the perfect time

Good timing for teams to get there at a good time.
Enough time for fans to get home. Changed etc and to the game.
Not to late to disupt things after.

Used to be 7.30 years ago, can't remember when and why it changed to 7.45 but most people don't have a problem with telling the time when the big hand is not at the top or bottom.

I think it changed to 7.45 around the early - mid 80's from memory - although I stand to be corrected.

The extra 15 mins was to give people more time to sort themselves out after work.

Well you may have a problem. At some stage the battery will expire and you could miss the game because you don't know the time. Best to stick with tried and trusted clockwork mechanics. You can't beat a wind up.

I think you’re right: seem to recall reading something from the club in the programme in the early to mid 80s about switching to 7:45 giving people more time to get to Portman Rd after work. Which makes sense as a large percentage of Town fans don’t live in Ipswich

Why those three options?

Why don't we kick off at 7.53 or 7.37 and 30 seconds?

EFL evening matches seem to tend to be 7.45 but with a few teams favouring 8.00 instead.

Without crowds a lot of teams went to 7.00 which potentially reduced floodlight usage in April/May.

Some European games tonight , admirably so in Italy and elsewhere kicked off at 5.45pm our time and I’d presume 6.45pm there’s ? Or are they 2 hours ahead but anyway if it’s only an hour that’s very early

Reading usually kick off at 8pm which allows a couple of more people to turn up.

They use to kick off a lot earlier until floodlights were introduced and I thought 7:45 was because of TV. Must TV shows run 30 or 60 mins, so 7:45 gave TV companies to finish at 7:30 and 15 mins to chat/get ready for kick-off, plus the 7:45 gave some minutes leeway before the next program at 10pm

It was brought in to ensure the half time adds were prime time adds after 8.30 and the schedule finished before 10pm when a different schedule ran. For television originally, then all followed, but some still do not if there is a reason.

and this will be a surprise to us footie fans, but fans getting to and from a match was never a consideration for kick off times. I know, this is shocking for all us fans, but apparently fans are not a consideration for elite clubs or TV schedules,

who would have guessed?
