Reds Behind Closed Doors

What is the status of the 2020/21 season?

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was announced that the season would begin on the weekend of 8 August. The suspension of matches means it is highly likely to be delayed. More detailed discussions on the start date and format will commence once a schedule for the remaining 2019/20 matches has been confirmed.


When will 2020/21 fixture lists be available?

The Premier League has not yet begun the process of fixture scheduling for the 2020/21 season. The process for compiling the fixture list, which involves input from Clubs, Police and local authorities, cannot be completed until matters including promotion, relegation and the start date have been determined.
