How are the football matches chosen?
The matches aren’t chosen at random, but rather involve months of complex scheduling spanning the league’s four divisions.
To start, the football season is broken down into five sets. Teams are then scheduled to hold three home and two away matches or vice versa for every five matches. This ensures that no team will have more than two home or away matches in a row, barring any rearranged games or postponements.
Teams are also scheduled to never have two home or away matches to begin or end the season, again barring schedule rearrangements and postponed games.
Are the matches subject to change?
As always, match dates are subject to change for various reasons. Dates can be changed due to reasons such as live TV coverage and European matches.
