Discussion about the 2020-21 Premier League season.

The Sky news story was old news without any relevant updates, so I deleted it.

This news story suggests two dates, Saturday August 29 and Saturday September 12.

When will Premier League 2020-21 start and finish? Teams involved and all you need to know

Ryan Kelly

As the 2019-20 campaign comes to a close, Goal takes a look at when the new one begins and ends
It won't be long after the curtain falls on the 2019-20 Premier League season that the 2020-21 campaign kicks off.

Having resumed play on June 17 following the coronavirus-enforced lockdown period, Premier League clubs will have squeezed nine (and a bit) matchdays into the space of a month, with the last games of the season being played on July 26. The FA Cup final will then bookend the term on August 1.

So when exactly will the next Premier League season begin? Will clubs have much of a pre-season?

Goal takes a look at the dates and which teams will be involved as English football looks to rebuild in the aftermath of the pandemic.

There are currently two potential 2020-21 Premier League start dates: Saturday August 29 or Saturday September 12.

The Daily Mirror reports that the Football Association favours an August start date, a position that is understood to be influenced by the fact that England's UEFA Nations League fixtures against Iceland and Denmark are scheduled for September 5 and 8 respectively.

However, Premier League clubs themselves are reportedly more keen on the September start date and it is understandable given that their players will have just played out a gruelling end to the 2019-20 season.

In normal circumstances, teams are granted a three-month break from competitive action, with the league season usually concluding in May and starting up again in August.

Pre-season, the period when players hone their match fitness, tends to kick off around a month before the first competitive games, but that will be impossible ahead of the 2020-21 season.

When will Premier League 2020-21 finish?
The finish date for the 2020-21 Premier League season has not yet been confirmed, but it is expected to be wrapped up in May 2021 in order to minimise further disruption to normal schedules.

If the league commences at the end of August or start of September, it is entirely achievable to finish in May.

Indeed, it would be even more likely if, as has been speculated, the Carabao Cup is temporarily scrapped in order to ease fixture congestion, thus freeing up fixture slots.

Which teams will be involved in Premier League 2020-21?
There will be 20 clubs in the 2020-21 Premier League and a number of them have already been confirmed as it becomes mathematically impossible for them to be relegated.

Three clubs will be relegated to the Championship, with Norwich City, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Watford and West Ham all very much fighting to retain their place at the top table.

Club Stadium 2019-20 position

Arsenal Emirates Stadium TBC
Burnley Turf Moor TBC
Chelsea Stamford Bridge TBC
Everton Goodison Park TBC
Leicester City King Power Stadium TBC
Liverpool Anfield 1st
Manchester City Etihad Stadium 2nd/3rd/4th
Manchester United Old Trafford TBC
Newcastle United St James' Park TBC
Sheffield United Bramall Lane TBC
Southampton St Mary's Stadium TBC
Tottenham Tottenham Hotspur Stadium TBC
Wolves Molineux Stadium TBC
TBC - -
TBC - -
TBC - -
TBC - -
TBC - 1st Championship
TBC - 2nd Championship
TBC - Championship play-offs winner

The three relegated clubs will be replaced by three teams from the Championship. Leeds United, West Brom, Brentford and Fulham in the mix for the two automatic promotion spots.

The final promotion will be decided through the play-offs, with Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City, Swansea City, Preston, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers all staking their claim - though it has not yet been confirmed.

What do you think Cal?

I'd go for the September one myself.
However it's only 2 weeks anyway.

The safer option would probably be the September date.

Not strictly related to the thread but it'll have a big impact on the PL (and other leagues); FA Cup replays are scrapped this season. Unsure if it's just for this one, or for good.



I believe the FA/PL also recently voted against 5 substitutes becoming the norm for the season. There are some changes to VAR but I don't really understand them enough yet

The winter break is also scrapped.

anyways Manchester United very very likely to have that new sports director Michael Zorc of BVB


BVB Dortmund will appoint club legend Sebastian Kehl as Zorc's own successor to that role

Iím not British Nicky

Iím sure the season will be halted as before if need be, it has seemed to work well behind closed doors though obviously the gate revenue will be needed going forward

Fixtures are revealed today, so we can all get the ball rolling on the prediction game and properly strategise our fantasy football teams

I know there's no such thing as an "easy" game in the PL, especially for the first few weeks when everyone's still adjusting, but a nice little start of WBA (Home), Newcastle (Away) and Aston Villa (Home) would be lovely.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has been arrested following an incident on the island of Mykonos on Thursday.

The England defender, 27, is on holiday in Greece.

The Syros prosecutor's office said on Friday that "three foreigners" had been arrested after an alleged altercation with police officers in Mykonos.

Maguire's lawyer Konstantinos Darivas said he denies the allegations and is "fully convinced he will be released without any charges" on Saturday.

Maguire joined United from Leicester for £80m - a world record fee for a defender - in August 2019.

"The club is aware of an alleged incident involving Harry Maguire in Mykonos last night," United said in a statement on Friday.

"Contact has been made with Harry, and he is fully co-operating with the Greek authorities. At this time we will be making no further comment."

Greek police said in a statement officers had tried to break up an altercation between two groups outside a bar and that the three foreigners had then verbally abused and assaulted one of the officers.

The statement claimed that after arriving at Mykonos police station, the three arrested individuals then "strongly resisted, pushing and hitting three police officers" and that "one of the detainees tried to offer money so that the trial against them would not be completed".

The police say a file has been opened which includes accusations of "violence against officials, disobedience, bodily harm, insult and attempted bribery of an official".

It is not known specifically what Maguire has been accused of.

-----

That's not the image united like to portray, he could well end up on the transfer list
