Premier League has revealed that the 2020/21 season will start on September 12 and run until May 23, 2021.

The English Football League (EFL) has also confirmed that the Championship, League One and League Two seasons will commence same weekend, with their regular seasons ending on the weekend of May 8, 2021

The current Premier League season will end on Sunday after it was suspended for three months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcements mean that the season will begin behind closed doors, with spectators only set to return to venues on a socially-distanced basis from October 1.

A statement from the Premier League reads;

Premier League shareholders today agreed to start the 2020-21 Premier League season on September 12, 2020. The final match round of the campaign will take place on May 23, 2021. The Premier League will continue to consult the FA and EFL regarding the scheduling of all domestic competitions.

 

 

 

 

The Premier League season concludes on Sunday, before the FA Cup final takes place on Saturday August 1 and the Championship Play-Offs end the domestic season with the Wembley showpiece final on Tuesday August 4.

The Champions League and Europa League will then take place between August 5 and August 23, with the Champions League final taking place just three weeks before next season is due to get underway.

The UEFA Nations League is also due to resume in September, with England set to face Iceland and Denmark in the week preceding the start of the Premier League season.
