The 2020/21 Premier League season is fast-approaching and we’ve got all the fixtures and TV details
By Michael Potts
The Premier League is back! And after delays to the 2019/2020 season, it feels like it’s barely been away.
Already we’ve arrived at the opening weekend of 2020/21 Premier League fixtures and every last one of them will be shown live on TV in the coming days.
Following a meeting between Premier League officials and broadcasters this week, it has been confirmed that every game in September will be shown live on Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and BBC.
New government guidelines regarding group gatherings have delivered a slight set-back for fans hoping to see their team live in the flesh in the opening months of the season, but it will be a relief that every game will be shown live on TV – for now, at least.
The downside? Prepare yourself for fewer Premier League free-to-air games, although we could be in for several across the course of the season.
Turning our eyes to the pitch, Manchester City will hope to chase down Liverpool in the title race this season after a meek surrender in 2019/20.
The Reds stormed to their first title in 30 years and will hope to repeat their success without having to wait another three decades to taste domestic glory once again.
Chelsea will hope initial injury problems for Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell subside in the coming weeks to give them the best shot of living up to their title race dark horses tag.
Manchester United could also be a force to be reckoned with in 2020/21 should Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford pick up where they left off last season.
North London duo Arsenal and Tottenham will hope to improve from turbulent campaigns last time out, though both may be pushed all the way by a chasing pack of Leicester, Wolves and Sheffield United
Newcastle and Everton have spent well this summer and could crack the top half once again.
If the prospect of a bristling top 1o isn’t enough to get you excited, the return of Leeds to the Premier League, guided by top-tier coach Marcelo Bielsa and armed with a wallet full of cash to spend should be enough of a wildcard prospect to inject the league with even more drama.
Teams will be rocking fresh looks with a host of new Premier League kits in 2020/21 but will hope their performances will capture the most attention – for the right reasons.
The initial 2020/21 Premier League schedule have been released and we’ve got the full fixture list below including all the TV details you could possibly need to watch all the action. Scroll down for the full Premier League fixtures list.
The Premier League 2020/21 season will start on Saturday 12th September, just seven weeks after the conclusion of the current campaign.
Every game in September will be shown live on TV, and we have the full details below in our Premier League fixture list.
Organisers must shoe-horn the season into a roughly ‘normal’ schedule by the end of the season with an end date in May to accommodate the re-scheduled Euro 2020 which has been shifted to start on 11th June 2021.
The Premier League season usually ends in early-to-mid May but will run an extra week to ensure all games are played.
We’ve rounded up the full list of broadcasters confirmed to be showing Premier League fixtures during 2020/21. We will add to this list if games are shared out further.
Sky Sports remains the home of Premier League football with 140 games to be shown live on their platforms across the span of the season, plus an additional six games in September.

Amazon Prime Video will broadcast two rounds of fixtures in December – including the Boxing Day games – plus one additional game in September.
You can take advantage of their 30-day free trial which includes free next-day delivery on thousands of items across the Amazon store.
BBC aired four Premier League games for the first time in history last season, drawing in record numbers of viewers.
They were not initially handed any games as part of the TV details announcement – a blow for fans hoping to catch the action on free-to-air channels – but that has changed just days before the season.
Clubs have reversed their decision to block non-TV games from being broadcast. Sky Sports and BT Sport have been given extra fixtures, while BBC have been handed one game.
On the Pick TV front, Sky Sports made several games available on their free-to-air channel, a firm fan favourite during lockdown, but so far there are no firm announcements to make games free to air in 2020/21.
