Why is Everton vs Manchester United kicking off at 7pm on Sunday?



BT Sport

Premier League fans hoping to catch up with Everton against Manchester United this weekend may have been confused by the unusual kick-off time scheduled for 7 p.m.

Usually, weekend games take place at 12:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Why, then, the change to a later time for this specific luminaire? The reason, as is often the case with top-flight football matches these days, is due to television rights holders.
