Football supporters' groups have urged broadcasters and the Premier League to give fans greater warning over fixtures that are switched to accommodate television.

In a joint statement, groups representing a number of top clubs urged officials in particular to announce their festive programme - or risk leaving many fans out of pocket.

Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust accused the Premier League of showing disregard for fans with regard to travel arrangements, adding: "The radio silence from the Premier League is astonishing, even in this day and age."

Liverpool supporters' group, Spirit of Shankly, said: "We have a seven day economy in the UK and many supporters have to book leave in advance, even for weekend home fixtures, late fixture changes does not just impact on away fans, home supporters are also being disadvantaged including season ticket holders who have committed money up front for match tickets."

Newcastle United Supporters' Trust insisted: "The longer we wait for confirmation of away fixtures, the more expensive the trip becomes."

The Football Supporters' Association has indicated it will continue to raise the issue of short-notice fixture changes at its next supporter engagement meeting with the Premier League.

It is understood the fixtures should be made available at some stage today.
