With Stoke set for many more changes should they progress in Europe, with many games being pushed back to Sunday due to that competition, the fixtire list could be further changed. Stoke's opening day game against Chelsea has been chosen for live coverage, the game now on Sunday 14th August, kicking off at 1.30pm. Stoke's home game against Newcastle United has also been chosen, and will now kick off at 8pm on Monday 31st October. The Potters home game with Blackburn will also be on a Monday night, kicking off at 8pm on Monday 28th November.
