As football fans eagerly anticipate the new season, the question on everyone's mind is: When does the 24/25 Premier League season start?

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season's schedule.

Fixture Release Date

The Premier League has confirmed that the fixtures for the 2024/25 season will be announced at 09:00 BST on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

This release will include the dates and matchups for all 380 games of the season.

Premier League Start Date

Opening Weekend

The 2024/25 Premier League season is set to kick off on Saturday, August 17, 2024.

This marks 90 days after the conclusion of the 2023/24 season, which ended on May 19, 2024.

The opening weekend will set the tone for what hopefully will be an exciting and competitive season.

Season Structure

The season will span 33 weekends, featuring four midweek rounds of matches and one Bank Holiday Matchweek.

This structure ensures a steady flow of games throughout the year, keeping fans engaged and teams competitive.

Key Dates and Changes

Christmas and New Year Schedule

In response to feedback from clubs regarding the congested holiday schedule, the Premier League has arranged for more rest time over three of the festive match rounds.

Importantly, no club will play within 60 hours of another match, and there will be no fixtures on December 24, 2024.

This adjustment aims to ensure player welfare during the busy holiday period.

Mid-Season Break

Notably, the mid-season break has been removed from the calendar.

Instead, the league will benefit from a longer summer break, allowing players a consecutive three-week rest period.

This change is based on expert advice from medical and technical departments, emphasizing the importance of a prolonged summer break over a short winter hiatus.
