So sad they couldn't agree k.o times before tickets went on sale. We don't all live in London!

I think virtually every school in England has the last week off in October as half term as that can be a fixed date as they know number of weeks to Christmas.

What you may find though is the following Monday 30th is also a holiday as it's one of the popular days to choose as a teacher training day so children off but not teachers. This applies to my niece in Sussex this year. I think schools have 6-7 days of these a year and the schools can choose when to take them independently but they always tend to add at the start or end of a holiday as it makes it easier for parents to plan than a random day mid term.

All children must be in school for 190 days of the year (although a few years back Prince william's wedding gave them an extra day off!) Schools can take 5 extra days as inset.

I know one school in Essex that did a really good thing: they scheduled all 5 days in the same week in June or July, effectively giving the kids an extra week off. It allowed parents to go off on holiday with their kids at a time when the weather should be nice and - best of all - when prices were cheaper as the usual school holiday price rise didn't apply.

Back on topic... it's nice that there is a mixture. It's only fair that LA-Arizona kicks off later. An early kick off means 6:30am local time in the two markets where the teams are from. That's not on in my view, especially for the home team. If a 6pm kick off is too much for you to go, then don't go - there are 3 other games to choose from. American fans have to deal with 8:30pm kick offs on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. Which puts one 6pm on a Sunday in October into perspective.
