Rail strike chaos set to hit football fans over Christmas period with Arsenal and Chelsea among clubs affected


ootball fans are facing travel chaos when the Premier League returns after extra rail strikes were scheduled over Christmas.

The RMT union has said staff at Network Rail involved in a pay dispute will walk out from 6pm on December 24 until December 27.

The planned new strike dates are set to affect millions of people travelling for Christmas and cause severe disruption for football fans over the festive period.

Brentford vs Tottenham, Crystal Palace vs Fulham and Arsenal vs West Ham are among the games in London set to be impacted on Boxing Day, while there will also be disruption for fans travelling to Chelsea vs Bournemouth on December 27.

Boxing Day travel is typically affected by general shutdowns but some routes

In 2012, Arsenal postponed their match against West Ham on Boxing Day due to planned industrial action on the London Underground. Arsenal also postponed their Boxing Day game in 2011 for the same reason.

Millwall, QPR and Watford are all in action in the Championship on Boxing Day, Charlton play in League One, while AFC Wimbledon and Sutton United have games in League Two. Leyton Orient host Stevenage on December 27.

As well as the planned strikes on December 24-27, industrial action at 14 train companies across four 48-hour periods will take place on: December 13-14, December 16-17, January 3-4 and January 6-7.
