Does anyone know how this works these days? I'm sure that years ago we seemed to have decent games on boxing day or on bank holidays but is it all just computer generated now?
It’s all computer generated. The football clubs and police give them recommendations as to when to put games on, when they have got certain things on already that they can’t have a football match on. For example Cheltenham will not have a home game during the festival. Forest and Notts are meant to both be away during goose fair but obviously Notts aren’t included in that now. The clubs get the fixtures a few days before they’re released so they can check things I’ve just mentioned then they are released to us lot afterwards. They’re still not always perfect so then they get moved as and when.
The National League is still done by hand by them.
