PHIL PARKINSON says Wrexham will “adapt” if games are selected for television coverage and there is a change of date or kick-off time.

More than 1,000 matches in all EFL competitions are set to be broadcast live each season under a new deal with Sky Sports.

Each Championship club will be featured on either one of Sky’s regular sports channels or its new Sky Sports+ platform a minimum of 24 times, with those in Leagues One and Two appearing at least 20 times.

This will include every match being broadcast live on the opening and closing weekends of the season, and all midweek and Bank Holiday games plus League One and Two matches during international breaks. All Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy matches will also be shown live, with 1,059 matches set to be shown live in total.

The EFL and Sky have pledged that broadcast selections up to the end of September will be confirmed within seven days of 2024-25 fixtures being announced on Wednesday June 26, and that supporters will know before the start of the season about any changes to kick-off times prior to the FA Cup third round weekend in January.

The EFL said that for League One and Two clubs, at least 16 of their 20 minimum appearances would not involve a change in kick-off time, while at least 11 of a Championship club’s minimum 24 appearances would involve no change.

Wrexham have clinched back-to-back promotions under Parkinson for the first time in the club’s history and will line-up in League One next season.

Although there is the potential for some kick-off times or dates to be altered, the Reds’ boss says his players and staff will take it in their stride.

“We know there could be varying kick-off times and days with the new television deal,” said Parkinson.

“It’s something we will have to get used to.

“It is just about adapting to that as the season goes on and when the television fixtures get announced.

“It is a good sign if you get selected for a television game because it shows you are doing well as the season progresses.

“We will just take whatever comes our way and adapt to that as we go along.”
