United Moves To Monday
Curtain-raiser one of six fixtures to change.
Everton's 2012/13 Premier League curtain-raiser against Manchester United will now be on a Monday night and live on Sky Sports.
The Blues' encounter with the dethroned champions will kick off at 8pm on August 20.
The fixture is the first of five which have been re-arranged following the announcement of Sky's first broadcasting schedule for the campaign.
Among the others to change is the first Merseyside derby of the season, which was originally pencilled in to be played at 3pm on Saturday, October 27.
The Goodison clash has been provisionally moved to a 12.45pm kick off on the same date but could move to 1.30pm on Sunday, 28 October if Liverpool reach the Europa League group stages.
Newcastle's visit to Goodison Park, first scheduled for Saturday, September 15 will now take place at 8pm on Monday, 17 September, while the following Saturday's outing at Swansea (22 September) has altered to an earlier kick off time of 12.45pm.
The Toffees' game at QPR on Saturday, October 20 has been moved to the following day - Sunday, October 21 at 4pm.
Our home game against Tottenham has also switched from Saturday, December 8 to Sunday, December 9 at 3pm because of the White Hart Lane outfit's involvement in the Europa League. TV selections for this part of the season have not yet been made.
