FA Cup final, Champions League and Europa League: August is an incredible month of football


The Premier League only concluded last week but we hope you’re ready for an absolute feast of football starting tomorrow.

That’s because August is jam-packed with quality football to feast on as we wait for the new domestic season to start again.

It kicks off on Saturday as Chelsea and Arsenal go head-to-head in the FA Cup final.

Sunday sees the National League Playoff final between Harrogate Town and Notts County.

There’s another playoff final on August 4. This time, it’s the Championship with Fulham and Brentford looking to earn promotion to the Premier League.

That will conclude the English football season.

Then, it’s time for European football.

The following day, the Europa League will return with eight matches over two days as the likes of Manchester United, Wolves, Inter Milan, Sevilla, Roma, Bayer Leverkusen and Rangers looking to progress to the next round.

After two days of Europa League action, we’re sure you’ll be ready for two days of Champions League football.

On August 7, Juventus/Lyon and Man City/Real Madrid finish off their last-16 ties. The next day - a Saturday - Bayern Munich/Chelsea and Barcelona/Napoli play theirs.


Sunday, August 9 there is no football to watch! What a disgrace.

But then it’s TEN STRAIGHT DAYS of football after that.

The 10th and 11th will feature two Europa League quarter-finals each.

Atalanta vs PSG in the Champions League quarter-final takes place on August 12, while RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid occupies August 13.

A potential Barcelona vs Bayern Munich quarter-final is on the 14th, while the 15th could feature a Man City vs Juventus clash.


The 16th and 17th are Europa League semis, while the 18th and 19th are Champions League semis.

Make your own plans for the 20th because we have another day off!

August 21 is the Europa League final before the Champions League takes place on August 23.

Then, the incredible month is rounded off by the Community Shield on August 29.
