Premier League confirm important date that Newcastle United will hope matters to them

The Premier League have announced the 2021/22 season will begin on August 14.

Thursday, 25th March 2021, 2:58 pm

After the start of this season was delayed until September due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the top-flight is set to revert back to its August start date.

The campaign will run until May 22, while the FA Cup final traditionally takes place after the league season has ended.

Newcastle United’s precarious position in the table means Steve Bruce’s side are still unsure on what division they’ll be next term.
