Did you know that until 1957, there was a full programme of Football League fixtures on Christmas Day, with the reverse fixtures taking place on Boxing Day? Madness!
Thankfully that is no longer the case and the scheduling is now a little less disruptive, so you can enjoy your Christmas Dinner in a timely manner and won’t have to miss the Queen’s Speech – phew!
