Premier League announce start and end dates for 2020/21 season

The Premier League have announced the much-awaited start and end dates for the 2020/21 season.

2019/20 will draw to a close on Sunday when the Gameweek 38+ fixtures are played while European competitions will continue into August.

But we finally know how long of a gap we will have between our next two Fantasy Premier League deadlines.

Saturday, September 12 has been confirmed as the first day of the 2020/21 campaign, a little under two months after the end of 2019/20.

The next season is expected to have a similar level of compression that football fans have experienced since June 17 in order to finish in time for Euro 2020, set to be staged next summer.

Sunday, May 23 has been given as the date of completion for 2020/21, less than a few weeks after the usual climax of a Premier League season.

That should is sure to mean more short turnarounds between Gameweeks as of September…

As things stand, there is no confirmation on how FA and EFL competitions will integrate with the Premier League’s recently announced dates.

Premier League Shareholders today agreed to start the 2020/21 Premier League season on 12 September. The final match round of the campaign will take place on 23 May. The Premier League will continue to consult with the FA and EFL regarding the scheduling of all domestic competitions.” – Premier League statement

    Play Alonso or Long?

      Long, Alsono plays strong defence and is likely to concede

    FH team G2G?

    Martínez
    Robertson, Pieters, Walker-Peters

      Should have had a back line of Walker, Pieters, and Walker-Peters.

      Nice team though!

    Hello people, do you have any site or any sure source of information about lineups before the deadline time (in Sunday, 5-10 min before 4 p.m.)?
    Because Guardiola above all. Sry for my English, thanks in advance and good luck. 🙂

        there will be loads of false lineups coming up on here though!

          Aguero starts!

  6. Oggle22

    Chances of Jrod scoring a couple haha wishful thinking

    1. GanonTEK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I need JRod to stand beside Pope keeping that clean sheet!

  7. CallmeCrim
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I need some advice! Is it worth going Auba -> Kane? It will mean going -4, but I've stuck with Auba for weeks now and got nothing in return.

      My team for the week is:

      Pope
      Stevens, Tarkowski, Aurier
      Soucek, D Silva, Salah, De Bruyne
      Jesus, Greenwood, Aubameyang

      1. Marc Jobling
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        No, I'd say Auba is the better option this week.

        1. CallmeCrim
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Thanks for the reply, Marc. Who would you captain?

      2. KINGS
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Who would you switch out for Sterling?

        Salah KDB Dilva Martial Bruno

        1. FISSH
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

      4. Dele
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thoughts on keeping Jesus? I've got 2 options for transfers, pick one...

        A) Doherty, Bruno, Jesus >> Tarkowski, Mahrez, Kane (-4)
        B) Doherty, Bruno >> Tarkowski, Son (Free)

      5. BremerHB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Number one priority to bring in this week to protect a lead of 65 points?
        ML rival will probably use FH.

        Pope (Martin)
        TAA Doherty Long (Holgate, Lascelles)
        Salah Martial Fernandes KDB DSilva
        Rashford Vardy (Connolly)

        1. Emm7980
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Kane for Rashford if funds allow. 65 would be a helluva swing, I wonder sweat it.

          1. Emm7980
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            I Wouldn't sweat it*

      6. Marc Jobling
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        If a leak reveals that both D Silva and Jesus start, which would you go for?

        (a) D Silva for Martial/Fernandes
        (b) Jesus for Jimenez

        De Gea
        TAA - Saiss - Bardsley
        Sterling (c) - De Bruyne - Martial - Fernandes
        Ings - Jimenez - DCL

      7. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Is this obvious? A or B?

        A) Mahrez and Aurier
        B) Silva and Robertson

        1. Marc Jobling
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          B

        So what can we infer from Guardiola's comments on KDB? He takes the next penalty ?

        1. Corgzzzz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Going to try and score a lot of goals.....KDB locked and loaded.....

        2. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Nothing

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        This side gave me the best score I had all season. (103 pts) It is amazing that I am still not able to choose the 2 ft's that are critical in my ML.
        Pope (Button)
        Doherty TAA Laporte
        Sterling KDB Martial Pulisic
        Greenwood Jimi Ings
        Bruno Sais Lund
        Would appreciate help and tnks in advance (Not boasting about last GW score A lot of luck went my way.

        Does the FPL site ever crash at 2.50 pm on Sunday with everyone doing final transfers on any reliable leaks?

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          No, but this one might

      11. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Foden, Bruno, Vardy to Sterling (C), Ings and Saka

        Will bench Saka

        Rest of attack Salah, KDB, Pulisic, Greenwood and Jesus

      12. Fantasynoob98
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Of my three strikers (Ings, Jiminez and Greenwood) which two should start?
