When will the 2021/22 Premier League season start after Euro 2020?

No other league in the world will have as many players representing their nations at this summer’s Euro 2020 than the Premier League with 118 players.

While the figure is an impressive accomplishment for the Premier League and proof why it’s one of the best if not the best league in the world, managers around the country will watch the competition warily.

After a gruelling campaign ravaged by injuries and Covid-19 quarantines, a high intensity tournament is probably what fitness coaches at Premier League clubs want the least.

With the competition only lasting a month, the focus will soon be back on the Premier League and the campaign ahead.

And coaches will be hoping their players will have gone through the tournament unscathed.

When will the 2021/22 Premier League start?

Most Premier League clubs will begin preparations for the 2021/22 season at the start of July – some will be underway even as the end of the Euro 2020 plays out.

The Euro 2020 final will be on Sunday 11 th July.

Meanwhile the 2021/22 Premier League campaign will start on the 14 th August which means there will be a little over a month break between the two competitions.

Chelsea celebrate
Chelsea will have the most players at Euro 2020 with 15.

The Premier League initially proposed an earlier start date of August 7 th – but clubs dismissed the idea considering it would have left less than a month between the continental tournament and the start of the season.

The 2021/22 campaign will end on May 22 nd 2022.

Plans for the 2022/23 season will then have to fit around a winter World Cup which is set to start in November 2022 and ends mid-December.

After a short pre-season last summer due to the Covid-19 pandemic – it seems Premier League clubs will not get much of a break this time around either, or next summer for that matter.

With the Olympics and Copa America also taking place this summer, coaches will have to make the best use of the time they will have available to them.

Who do you think will win the Premier League next season?
