The Premier League fixtures list has been released ahead of the 2020/21 season.

There’s a swift turnaround as a result of the extended 2019/20 campaign, with the new season set to be five weeks shorter than usual.

It will start on September 12 and finish on May 23, 2021, with the winter break being scrapped due to fixture congestion.

Premier League clubs involved in the latter rounds of European cup competitions will start later than the other top-flight teams.

That means Manchester United, who reached the Europa League semi-finals, and Manchester City, Champions League quarter-finalists, won’t feature on the opening weekend.

United and City’s first games are listed as being on the opening weekend but will be moved to suit the agreement reached by all Premier League clubs that every team will get a minimum of 30 days off before the new season gets underway.

Here are the fixtures on the opening weekend:

Meanwhile, next season's Champions League and Europa League group stage will get underway on October 20.

The 2020/21 UEFA Nations League group stage will be played across September, October and November, and Euro 2020 will now be held from June 11-July 11 2021.
