When does the Premier League start?
With Euro 2020 over, attentions have once again turned to club football.
Pre-season is already well underway, with most sides having at least one game under their belts at the time of writing.
And though some are still without their biggest stars due to recent international commitments, they will be back in time for the 2021/22 Premier League season getting underway
But when does the campaign actually start?
The 2020/21 term was delayed due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. But there will be no delays this time around, with the season once again set to begin in August.
The first outing of the campaign takes place on Friday, August 13th at 8:00 PM UK time.
There are then seven Premier League ties set to take place on Saturday, August 14th. The first kicks off at 12:30 PM UK time, with five games then on at 3 PM and one final tie at 5:30 PM.
The first round of Premier League fixtures will be rounded out on Sunday, August 15th.
Newcastle face West Ham in a 2:00 PM clash, with Tottenham then hosting Manchester City at 4:30 PM.
New teams & TV changes
Ahead of the season getting underway, there are a couple of changes you should be aware of.
Firstly, Brentford, Norwich and Watford are the three new additions to the English top-flight.
Brentford will start their season vs Arsenal on July 13th, Watford take on Aston Villa on the 14th and Norwich meet the might of Liverpool later the same day.
In addition, with fans set to be allowed back into grounds, there will be a lot less football on English TV.
Whilst every single PL fixture was shown on either Sky, BT or Amazon last time out, we are now back to the traditional slots on weekends.
The 12:30 and 5:30 games on Saturday will be broadcast, whilst one 2:00 PM game along with the 4:30 PM fixture on Sunday are also available to watch.
But all 3:00 PM games are now once again unavailable in England.
