When does Premier League 2020-21 start? Key dates, teams, schedule and how to watch in Canada

The 2020-21 Premier League season is set to start just six weeks after the previous campaign ended.

The stop-start nature of the prior season means that the 2020-21 campaign will start later than usual. Reigning champion Liverpool will begin its title defence in September rather than the mid-August kick-off that is traditional in England's top flight.

Even with the later start, it'll still be a tight squeeze to fit the entire season in before next summer's European Championship. Additionally, four clubs advanced deep into the current Champions League and Europa League and will need some sort of break ahead of the new domestic campaign. 

Regardless of the obstacles, it's full steam ahead as one of the most popular leagues in the world is ready to go.

When does Premier League 2020-21 start?

  • Premier League start: Saturday, Sept. 12

The new season is set to kick off Saturday, Sept. 12.

As mentioned, four clubs — Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Wolverrhampton Wanderers — reached the quarterfinals (or later) of Europe's continental tournaments and may start later than the rest of the clubs.

When does Premier League 2020-21 finish?

As usual, the league's final matchday will happen on a Sunday with all clubs in action simultaneously. May 23 is the scheduled date for the season finale, which is 19 days before the scheduled kick-off of Euro 2020 (which was postponed to 2021).

What teams are in the Premier League 2020-21?
