Motherwell at home twice midweek - that's a fair loss of income right away given they would have brought a good Saturday support.

On reflection it's better to have midweek games against a team that are close . . . Kinda

According to a reliable source our opening day fixture is home to Hearts

Full opening day fixture list:

Aberdeen v Livingston

Celtic v Dundee

Hamilton Academical v St Johnstone

Hibernian v Motherwell

Kilmarnock v Rangers

St Mirren v Heart of Midlothian

 

 

 

 

One out of six. Better than your usual guesses! :)

Any idea when the tv schedules come out? Looking to do a trip for my birthday but don't want to book anything yet in case it gets shifted to Friday/Sunday (not that I see Accies v Saints being shifted!)

How does that work then?My birthday is the same date every year but wouldn't mind moving it if it fell on a Monday.

Last year's opening games involved the promoted team playing the team that came 6th. 

Extrapolating my theory (good that init?) the following may happen.

That would be St. Mirren v Hearts for this season.

Looking at the way the SPL started last season, Celtic v Hearts would be Celtic v Kilmarnock this season.

Last season Aberdeen v Hamilton, would be Aberdeen v Livingston (Partick were second bottom)

Last season Motherwell v Rangers, would be Dundee v Rangers.

Last season  St. Johnstone v Kilmarnock, would be Hibs v St. Johnstone.

Last season Dundee v Ross County,  would be Motherwell v Hamilton.

Then wit do I know? I just think I'm Albert Einstein.

Each club can only have a max of 4 home games on TV (pre-split).
Guaranteed that 3 of those will be against the bigot brothers leaving one which will almost certainly be later on in the season.
As for away games, when we were last in the top division we went something like 3 and a half seasons without being covered.

Why are so many Rangers games and Celtic games on a Sunday?

You can't broadcast on a Saturday as Sky/BT have to show EPL games then.  I'll bet they will be 12 o'clock kick-offs as well!!!

I  look at the fixtures and think this going to be tough being our first season. The other thing that pops out is  just how small the premiership is it's about time it was expanded. 

 

It's the biggest league in spfl.

Expand it and we will end up with too many meaningless matches.

There's no doubt that it is a tough league. I would prefer to be playing each other only once at home and once away but there doesn't seem to be an alternative that maintains interest at too and bottom in the way the current structure does. If there is then bring it on.
