New start dates
The dates for the season to begin usually arrive in August, but the suspension and late finish due to world events, means all three of Premier League will kick-off their new campaigns in September, the 12th for England and Spain, and the 19th for Italy. All three leagues are scheduled to wrap up on 23 May 2020.
In the Premier League, the trio of Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham will be the ‘new boys’ after securing promotion at the end of last season. West Brom and Fulham have been regular competitors in recent Premier League seasons, but the return of Leeds is big news: the Whites are truly one of the biggest clubs in England and a first showing in the top flight since 2003-04 adds to the excitement and intrigue for 2020-21.
