FA Trophy Final - 1st Half on Setanta Sports News - Saturday 9th May 2009

Due to scheduling problems, Setanta have had to move the 1st half of the FA Trophy final onto their news channel which you do not have to pay for. Enjoy.

The FA Trophy final has never been on BBC. Historically Sky have had it but this season it is Setanta.

Sounds like they have fewer subscribers than they were hoping...

Interesting deal - well posted!

No, its just their other channels are full at that time

its only the fa trophy final its not like its a huge draw.

and bbc have never shown the match. infact i dont think they have ever shown anything like this.

I think the majority of the UK will be watching the Old firm anyway (if it's at this time).

Edit/ nevermind, it's on at 2pm whereas old firm's at half 12, suppose that's where the clash is anyway

I'm going to see it at Wembley, but heat nonetheless 8-)

But then surely they would whatever else was clashing to the other channel rather than event as big as the FA Trophy?

Maybe majority of Scotland, but the UK :thinking:

Sorry, I have no interest in Scottish 'Old Firm' matches and don't know anyone who is. In a similar way, I have know interest in the Welsh, French or Dutch leagues.

True as long as you have a short memory...
the FA cup used to be on the BBC and ITV at the same time [and the BBC used to get 3-4 times the viewing figure - they bragged a lot about it.]
it is one of the crown jewels and will be on free-to-view.

The FA Cup and the FA Trophy aren't the same thing...

The F.A. Trophy is NOT a big game.

Setanta News is not available to Sky subscribers who don't have Sultana Sports due to the fact that it's a rip off and it's full of terrible commentators.

Do people understand the difference between the FA Cup and the FA Trophy?

Does this mean it is not on Setanta 1? Bit unfair if it isn't, we're paying a tenner a month and we can't watch it because they decide to change the channel to a non-freeview one...

The F.A. Trophy is NOT a big game.



Yes it is, it is the biggest tournament in non-league football (except for the FA Cup, which non-league teams hope for a good draw to get more money). Non-league football is the home of real football, not some foreign whingers.

That doesn't make it a big game though... The Champions League Final is a big game. :thumbsup:

It may big a big game for the non-league clubs and supporters but you can't state it as being a big game!

Man, can't believe setanta is pulling all these games.

Wish the monopolising games rule didn't come in.

Sky still the best though, I have Virgin at other house and it's not as good imo.
Plus very bad Commentating even more so than ITV.

Nice, can't complain if it's free :thumbsup:

why is this hot?

Rubbish game = Why didnt i go to pub so atleast i didnt waste 45mins of my life watchin this!
good game = WoW! i wonder how this will end, oh w8.......

Setanta News is available for free to all Virgin Cable customers and people who have a Sky digibox without subscription (providing you have a Free to View card or an expired subscription card)

worth watching if only half a game. as dont pay for sports pakage on sky .as can not afford it. nice to get it free
