2021/22 Premier League fixtures release date and all you need to know ahead of the upcoming season.

The focus is very much on Euro 2020 at the moment, but there is still much more befalling for Premier League clubs.

As well as the endless flurry of transfer speculation and the manager merry-go-around which is in full-wave, top-flight clubs will get their schedules for the 2021/22 season onw Wednesday morning.

The conclusion of the Euros on 11 July leaves only a short pause until the new Premier League campaign begins and running the following month.

Last season saw Norwich City, Watford and Brentford ascended to the pinnacle of the English game as Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United plummeted down to the Championship. At the other end of the table, Pep Guardiola won his third title with Manchester City after a hugely exciting season.

But when are the fixtures released and what are the dates for the upcoming season?

The fixtures for the new Premier League period will be released on Wednesday morning.

There is little time for rest and relaxation, as many Premier League teams’ pre-season arrangements will be in full swing by mid-July.

The 2021/22 season ends on Sunday 22 May, 2022, with all fixtures kicking off at the same time in the usual format.

While there is another major international tournament next year – the 2022 World Cup – it is worth having in mind this will not take place until wintertime due to the heat in the Middle-Eastern country.

Earlier this week, UK prime minister Boris Johnson shifted back the date for the easing of lockdown from 21 June to 19 July.

But pilot sporting test events with larger crowds are expected to go ahead, including the Euros, and the delayed date for the relaxing of all legal restrictions on social contact does not overlap into the new Premier League season.

As such, Premier League chiefs will be dreaming to have full stadiums throughout the 2021/22 period, as chief executive Richard Masters painted in May.

“The fans are starting to come back next week and I hope on Aug. 14 they will be back in full,” said Masters.

“No one knows of course, but I feel really optimistic that we will be full.

“All the mood music and the messages coming out of government are positive, with the cautionary caveats and safety will always come first. Maybe the fan experience will be slightly different, but I’m optimistic and that’s our objective.

“Whatever we have to do and put in place, we will and the clubs will step in and do it, so I am optimistic that’s going to happen.

“Full capacity crowds [have been] the missing ingredient, so let’s be optimistic about it.”
