Premier League Confirms August As Start Date For 2021/22 Season
The Premier League has announced that the 2021/22 campaign will start on August 14 after the date was agreed by all its shareholders.
The final round of matches will take place on 22 May 2022 with all matches taking place simultaneously. Taking into account the United Kingdom's plans to exit lockdown, the opening fixtures should be played in front of full stadia.
The start of this current season was delayed as the previous term overran after the coronavirus pandemic saw football grind to a halt back in March last year.
The European Championship, originally scheduled for last summer, was postponed and will now take place at the end of this season, but despite that the plan is to return to the traditional mid-August start.
