Official: Premier League 2020-21 starts on September 12

The upcoming English Premier League season will start on September 12, concluding the 2020-21 edition on May 23 next year.

Only 20 days after the 2019-20 Champions League Final in Lisbon next month, the Premier League will start again.

The current campaign will end on Sunday after having suspended the season for three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

BBC has confirmed that the English League will resume on September 12, the same days as the reported hypothesis for the upcoming Serie A season.

The Europa League Final will be played on August 21 in Germany, with the Champions League scheduled for August 23, leaving only a three-week break for the teams competing in the Finals of the European tournaments.

Sky Sport Italia previously reported the first hypothesis of starting on September 12 in Italy as well. But the Lega Serie A reportedly works on different dates too.

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has publicly voiced his concerns regarding that date and suggested to start on October 4.

The Partenopei are one of five teams still competing in Europe, together with Juventus and Atalanta in the Champions League, whilst Roma and Inter are preparing for their games in the Europa League next month.
