The Premier League and its clubs are committed to the ambition of having full stadiums, including away supporters, from the start of the season, and will continue to work closely with Government and all relevant authorities, ensuring operational plans are in place ready to safely welcome supporters back to stadiums in August.
This commitment came today after the Premier League confirmed the fixture schedule for the 2021/22 season, which starts on the weekend of Saturday 14 August 2021 and concludes on Sunday 22 May 2022.
This season will see 200 matches shown live in the UK by partners Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video. Broadcast selections for the month of August will be announced by Monday 21 June 2021.
The Premier League’s UK live radio partners, BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT, will continue to present the action across each weekend, including the 15:00 slot on Saturday afternoons.
This season, the weekend of Saturday 29 January 2022 forms part of the FIFA International Match Calendar, and as such, no Premier League matches will take place. Match Round 37 has been scheduled for Sunday 15 May 2022 to avoid a clash with the FA Cup Final, which will take place on Saturday 14 May 2022.
