EASTBOURNE Speedway has made special arrangements to help fans keep abreast of two big football matches in the next fortnight.

Fans who also follow soccer will be able to stay in touch with the Champions League Final on Saturday (May 19) when Chelsea take on Bayern Munich for the crown of Europe’s top club.

The match will be screened on televisions in the stadium’s two bars.

A 37-inch television screen will be in the clubroom with three TV sets for the bar at the upper level of the grandstand.

The football match gets underway at 7.45pm and the interval for speedway may be adjusted to fit in with half-time in the football.

On Saturday, June 2, when the Eagles take on Poole, England play Belgium at Wembley in their final warm-up match for the European Championships.

The turnstiles at Arlington will open at 5pm in time for the 5.15pm kick off at Wembley so fans can see the football before the start of the speedway.

Saturday’s match against Swindon gets under way at 7.30pm. Before racing begins a minute’s silence will be held in memory of Lee Richardson.
