From August 7 to August 14 players offered a longer break after the end of the European Championships.
The 2021-22 Premier League season will begin on the weekend of August 14.
After a condensed 2020-21 campaign due to the coronavirus pandemic, the league announced it will revert to its usual starting slot in the second week of August.
The season will conclude on 22 May 2022, with all 10 games kicking off simultaneously.
The league has duly acquiesced to that demand and informed club bosses at Thursday’s latest shareholders’ meeting.
