In line with previous years publishers have arranged potential cut-off extensions in the South-West of 30 minutes for issues dated Weds 14/04/21, Thurs 15/04/21 & Fri 16/04/21.
These extensions would be strictly conditional and would only be applied should any of the Champions League or Europa League quarter final games listed below go to extra time:
TUESDAY 13TH APRIL – CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTER-FINALS – 2nd LEG – affecting issue dated Weds 14/04/21:
Chelsea – FC Porto
WEDNESDAY 14TH APRIL – CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTER-FINALS – 2nd LEG – affecting issue dated Thurs 15/04/21:
Borussia Dortmund – Manchester City
Liverpool – Real Madrid
THURSDAY 15TH APRIL – EUROPA LEAGUE QUARTER-FINALS – 2nd LEG – affecting issue dated Fri 16/04/21:
Manchester United – Granada
Slavia Prague – Arsenal
For clarity, the extension would be applied to the following houses if it happens:
For many titles having those games covered in full is essential and therefore these extensions may be necessary for us to meet our readers needs.
Hopefully none of those games will go to extra time but if they do that extra time will be crucial for publishers.
