When Does New Premier League Season Start? Key Dates Confirmed Including World Cup Break

The 2021/22 Premier League season ended on Sunday with a dramatic final round of fixtures.

Manchester City came from 2-0 down with just 15 minutes to go to win the title, Leeds pulled off an unlikely escape act and Golden Boot co-winner Son Heung-min fired Tottenham into the Champions League.

When Does The New Premier League Season Start?

So, how long do we have to wait until the next Premier League season begins?

The answer is just under 11 weeks.

Due to soccer's first ever winter World Cup disrupting the European club season in November and December, the Premier League will start slightly earlier than usual.

The first round of fixtures will take place over the weekend of August 6 and 7, though the first game is likely to be held on Friday, August 5.
