Subscribe to Fixtures Calendar feed
What is the difference between "download" and "subscribe"?
- Download is a one-off import of the fixtures. If the fixtures change, you will need to download the calendar file again to update your data.
- If you subscribe to the calendar feed, your calendar application will sync the fixture dates and kick-off times automatically without the need for a manual update so you will always have the latest information. (Subscribe option is not available in Outlook 2002/2003).
How do I subscribe to this calendar?
- Go to Tools > Account Settings.
- Choose Internet Calendars tab.
- Click "New..." and paste the following URL into the location field and click Add.
Your calendar will pick up any updates to our Fixture list automatically.
