Athletic’s Basque Derby Against Eibar Rescheduled To Sunday
The ongoing debate over playing La Liga games on Monday and Friday nights continues. Athletic’s opening match against Granada was rescheduled two days before kickoff and now it’s happened to the Lions once again.
With Athletic originally scheduled to travel to Ipurua on Friday a final decision was handed down today through the courts. Athletic will instead play Eibar on Sunday with the game set to kick off at 2:00 pm.
For now Athletic remain caught in the middle of a war between La Liga and the Spanish Football Federation. A court appointment is set for 2 October to hopefully resolve the ongoing issue. Having had their first two games of the season rescheduled 48 hours before kickoff, Athletic plan to launch a formal protest.
