Almost certainly shoddy journalism that story (I can only find it in the Sun), that's probably the whole annual energy bill for an EFL club with full time players, staff, offices, training ground, etc and a big stadium.

If typical floodlight use in the football season cost even £10k it would never have been adopted in non league, let alone U18s etc

In reality moving kickoffs would probably be a false economy for most teams by hurting the gate more than they'd save on floodlights. 3pm on a Saturday and 7.45pm on a workday have been well established forever because they work for the most number of people. Plus watching football is way better under lights.

If things get so bad that the Government forces clubs' hands that's one thing; but I really hope not many clubs do this voluntarily.
