In line with previous years, publishers have arranged potential cut-off extensions in the South-West (and Swansea) for 30 minutes for issues dated Wednesday 19th April 2023, Thursday 20th April 2023 and Friday 21st April 2023.

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 18TH APRIL: Champions League Quarter-Finals (2nd Leg)

– Chelsea vs Real Madrid

– affecting issue dated Wednesday 19th April 2023


WEDNESDAY 19TH APRIL: Champions League Quarter-Finals (2nd Leg)

– Bayern Munich vs Manchester City

– affecting issue dated Thursday 20th April 2023


THURSDAY 20TH APRIL: Europa League Quarter-Finals (2nd Leg)

– Sevilla vs Man Utd & West Ham vs AA Gent

– affecting issue dated Friday 21st April 2023


For clarity, the extension would be applied to the following houses:

• Bodmin

• Redruth

• Plymouth

• Exeter

• Barnstaple

• Taunton

• Yeovil

• Swansea


For many titles, having those games covered in full is essential, and therefore these extensions may be necessary to meet readers’ needs.

Hopefully none of those games will go into extra time, but if they do, those cut-off extensions will be crucial for publishers.
