With Manchester City visiting Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday 9 May, their home match with Leeds United has moved from Sunday 7 May to 15:00 BST on Saturday 6 May.

The match will remain live on Sky Sports in the UK, subject to further consultation with relevant stakeholders regarding Article 48.

The usual Saturday 12:30 BST UK live broadcast slot has been avoided so as not to clash with the King’s Coronation, while a later kick-off is not possible due to police resourcing.

With West Ham United hosting AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League semi-finals on Thursday 11 May, their trip to Brentford has been moved from the Saturday to the Sunday.

What is Article 48?

The period between 14:45 and 17:15 on a Saturday is designated by The Football Association as a closed period (the "Closed Period") under UEFA Article 48, during which no football matches can be broadcast in the UK.

The Closed Period is designed to protect match attendances at a professional and amateur level and promote grassroots participation.
