Mansfield are bringing their League Two game against Walsall forward on Saturday 15 October from 3pm to 1pm in a bid to tackle the cost of living crisis by cutting lighting and heating bills
Mansfield have brought up their League 2 game against Walsall on Saturday 15 October from 3pm to 1pm to cut spending on floodlights and other energy costs.
EFL teams are set to discuss the possibility of earlier kick-offs next week as a potential solution to rising energy bills, an idea that gained momentum when a poll showed many of them would support it on Wednesday.
Over 60 per cent of the 40 clubs surveyed by Fair Game, including a dozen from the EFL, said they would consider bringing forward kick-off times for Saturday’s league and FA Cup games to cut lighting and heating bills.
And ahead of their meeting with Walsall on Saturday at Field Mill, Mansfield has taken the first step in dealing with the cost-of-living crisis by bringing the game forward from 3pm to 1pm.
The Stags said in a statement on Thursday:
Mansfield has brought up his duel with Walsall on Saturday from 3 p.m. to 1 p.m
