    Saturday evening kick offs

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58671492
    "Dundee and Aberdeen are to trial a 18:00 BST Saturday evening kick-off time on 16 October in order to boost international coverage of the Scottish Premiership game."

    Hmm, I thought they were trying to attract a new audience...

    Absolutely no problem with this. Always thought Saturday night matches would be better than your normal Saturday/Sunday noon kicks offs. Hopefully brings a more rowdier crowd also.

    3pm kick offs should be consigned to the past.

    I don't mean bugger around with kick off times to suit the f@uckin telly either.

    Just change the regular kick off time to something more folk can attend.

    Shop workers and amateur fitba players attending a 7pm kick off at Pittodrie should boost the crowd.



    Picking 6pm is typical.

    DD , summer evening fitba .
    If this group o businessmen are serious about changes to get crowds in and raise money, this should be one of options.

    Summer football is a no brainer, which is why it won't happen in the stupid mad world of Scottish football.

    We didn’t qualify for 5 world cups in a row between 1974 and 1990 by playing summer football.

    Wasn't the same choice of leisure facilities, streaming etc back then . Crowds were allowed to pay at gate too .
    Can't keep referring to the past if want to look to future and improve.
    Something has to done to encourage stay away and the young .
    Better product definitely will do this but need a change in thinking and approach to game in general.

    Nor by having those waanky digital subs’ boards, effete 15-minute half-time breaks, sinks with hot water in the lavvies, “international breaks”, or spoilsport ‘matchday experience’ pish like fanzones, singing sections, and face-painting.

    And international fitba can go suck Doncaster’s cock.
