Premier League clubs, on Friday, agreed to start the 2020/21 season on September 12.
The decision was made during a video conference meeting consisting of Premier League shareholders
With the 2019/20 season finishing more than two months later than planned, the start of the 2020/21 campaign has been pushed back.
Originally scheduled for 8 August, the Premier League is now set to start over a month later than planned and conclude on May 23.
“Premier League Shareholders today agreed to start the 2020/21 Premier League season on 12 September 2020,” a statement from the Premier League read.
“The final match round of the campaign will take place on 23 May 2021.
“The Premier League will continue to consult The FA and EFL regarding the scheduling of all domestic competitions.”
And it is also likely that midweek slots between the end of October and the middle of December will be made of UEFA club competitions matches.
One of Brentford, Fulham, Cardiff City or Swansea City is expected to join Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion in the top-flight next season.
While two of Bournemouth, Watford and Aston Villa will be joining Norwich City in the Championship next season.
