A shortened top-flight campaign is set to start on 12 September and lead up to 23 May 2021.

The new season will be five weeks shorter than usual because of the late end to 2019-20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, the Premier League has cut its winter break because of fixture congestion.

Premier League clubs that are in the latter stages of European cup competitions will be given a delayed start to the 2020-21 season.

Manchester City reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, while Wolves and Manchester United reached the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively in the Europa League.

A 30-day break has generally been accepted, which would mean all three clubs will not start their campaigns on 12 September.

Fixtures for the Championship, League One, and League Two will be released on Friday at 9:00 BST.
