Television company requested to move fixture
By James Dall Last updated: 9th November 2007

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that Manchester United turned down a request to play Everton at 8pm on Christmas Eve.

The club were approached by a television company to move the kick-off to the night before Christmas but it was dismissed out of hand.

Ferguson said: "The club were asked to play and it was a non-starter. Who wants to play on Christmas Eve?

"The players will be wanting to get their Christmas presents out for their children. That was an easy one to decide."

United will now play the match at Old Trafford at noon on 23rd December.
