Brighton and Hove Albion will appear on Sky Sports three times in quick succession this December.
The home match with Leeds, which has yielded a glut of goals in recent seasons, is brought forward to Friday 9 December with a 7.45pm kick off.
A week later the away game at Birmingham City is now a 5.30pm start for broadcast purposes.
The now seldom but previously traditional home Boxing Day fixture is as left over as the turkey. The QPR game is moved back 24 hours to Christmas Tuesday with a 12.30pm start.
Albion also visit Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday 13 December.
But the festive month is bookended by matches against Cardiff City – away on Saturday 3 December and at home on the penultimate day of the year Friday 30 December, with a 7.45pm kick off.
The Seagulls’ fixtures away at Bristol City and home to Aston Villa will also be broadcast live by Sky Sports in November.
