No consideration for Inverness fans though , a decent noisy away support makes it so much more of a cup tie

Don’t think you can blame our commercial dept. for sfa moving a cup game to the Friday night

I don't know if the coms were involved, but setting a date for an event for a date there was a chance of a football game being on doesn't strike me as being terribly competent. Of all the weeks that there was virtually certainly not going to be a Friday night game, that wasn't one of them.

The game wasn't "moved" to the Friday, it was one of 4 games that weekend that would be shown on television between Friday and Sunday. It wasn't exactly unforeseeable.

That says ‘weekend of 29th’ so in my opinion they weren’t planning on playing a game on the 28th so can’t blame our commercial department for this one.

An event has been postponed at a fortnights notice, just as well it wasn’t a wedding, or people had made plans to come from abroad for the hall of fame event.

Friday night football isn’t a new phenomenon, and I don’t think it’s unreasonable to have expected someone somewhere along the line to have said there might be an issue with the date.

There's been a Friday night game every round of the Scottish Cup this season, apart from the last round - but only because there was a full premiership card wednesday midweek. That's why Hearts and Falkirk ended up with the prime time Saturday slot.

I believe the event is sold out - you can’t tell from the website - which leaves an awful lot of people who have paid an awful lot of money having to change arrangements and I’d be extremely surprised if they were warned about this possibility at the time of booking. This isn’t a football match being moved for telly - and nothing I’m reading makes me think this is “okay” or “not our fault”. It’s simply not the professional standard of care I’d expect.

I don’t believe anyone would be so accepting if it was their function that had been postponed.
