Fixture Release Day: Aston Villa to learn Premier League schedule

Aston Villa 2019/20 pre-season: European fixture announced Fixture Release Day: Tottenham Hotspur away first up for Aston Villa
Fixture Release Day: Aston Villa to learn Premier League schedule

Fixture Release Day is less than 24 hours away!

At 9am this Thursday, Aston Villa will learn their nine-month schedule for their return to the Premier League.

We'll be on hand first to bring you the complete calendar first, as we face the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City once again.

Below are all the details ahead of release day.

When do the fixtures get released?

They're publicly available from 9am on Thursday 13th June.

We'll reveal all our key games and the calendar in full across our channels first.

Can I download them to my phone calendar?

Yes. Once again, we'll be giving supporters the option to download the complete calendar.

Click here from 9am on Thursday to get them to your device.

When does the season start?

The new Premier League campaign will commence the weekend beginning Friday 9th August 2019.


When will we know if we're on television?

Sky Sports and BT Sport will announce their Premier League broadcasts for the first part of the season within a month of fixtures being released.

This year, Amazon also have broadcast rights. They will screen 20 matches in the build-up to Christmas and all matches on Boxing Day.

When is the mid-season break and how does it work?

The new mid-season break for all Premier League clubs occurs in February. It lasts for two weeks, but still sees Premier League football played over those weekends.

Each weekend will see 10 teams take a rest, with the other 10 teams in action, and vice-versa the following weekend. So a reduced schedule of five games on those weeks.

FA Cup Fifth Round matches will be played midweek to accommodate this.


What new stadiums will we visit?

There's two new venues for our away following to tick off this season.

They're both in London, where we'll play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and West Ham United's London Stadium for the first time.

When do tickets for Premier League games and Season Tickets come on sale?

We'll have an announcement on on-sale dates, pricing and sale criteria very soon.


Who do we play in pre-season?

We will play Minnesota United, Shrewsbury Town, Walsall, Charlton Athletic and Red Bull Leipzig away in preparation for the Premier League. Full details can be found below.
