April Fool’s round-up: The best and the worst so far


Sorry to ruin the fun, but at least you can try some of these stories on your mates.

The Bundesliga want you to believe that each club will be allowed to paint their pitch to match their colours one match a year.

In other fake news, The FA have agreed a deal with Pizza Hut that will begin in 2018. That’ll keep the players happy.

Stats gurus Opta got in on the action as well, tweeting some semi-believable but bizarre facts such as these ones below. I’ll admit the first one got me before I realised what day it was.

The Daily Mail have reported that in the future, some Premier League matches will kick-off at 9:30am, to allow for a greater global television audience.

And as we told you earlier, DT is replacing Robbie as ArsenalFanTV presenter.
