Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington last night gave his full backing to the decision to play Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier against Denmark in the evening.
Since Saturday internationals became a regular thing around a decade ago every one of Northern Ireland's competitive games have had 3pm kick-offs.
The change has come about because results in midweek evening games have been significantly better than weekend outings - notably the wins against England, Spain and Sweden - and the Irish FA are hoping that the Wednesday night buzz will transfer to Saturday.
It was a move first muted by former manager Lawrie Sanchez and Worthington is happy that his first Saturday home game will have an evening kick-off.
"I think Wednesday nights at Windsor Park have always been special and this is a way of trying to recreate that," said Worthington.
"Hopefully with an evening kick-off the atmosphere will be just like it is in midweek and I am sure the supporters, who are always fantastic, will once again have the ground buzzing.
"The decision to play the game in the evening was talked about before I took the job and things had already been moving on that score. I wasn't asked about it, but if I had been I would have been fully behind the switch.
"We need the fans to play their part too if they get behind the team the way that they usually do then I am sure the players will feed off that and put in a performance that will hopefully get us the win that we need."
