Newcastle away 93/94 opening day - pretty sure they were newly promoted.We’ve had 28 opening day fixtures in the Premier League era. Our first match in the Premier League was a goalless draw at Southampton on 15 August, 1992. Our opening day record is won 11, drawn 7, lost 10.
We've played 21 of our 28 opening day fixtures in the Premier League away from home.
I would have to check but I wonder how many times we've played a newly promoted side first game of the season ?? Anybody know ?
Only if there are thousands of fans of 4 clubs (2 sets of home fans/2 away) milling around a relatively local area...I mean I know you can't have rivals playing at home on the same day etc. but I didn't know that, is that an actual thing?
