The release of the Premier League fixtures is always much anticipated, if you are in the top tier…

Newcastle fans have eight games and 47 days remaining of this hopefully one season only stay in the Championship.

If/when promotion is secured, we can all then look forward, rather than behind us, to playing the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal once again.

The Premier League have now confirmed some key dates, including when the Premier League fixtures for 2017/18 will be released.

The 2017/18 Premier League season will kick-off on the weekend of Saturday 12 August.

That campaign will then end of Sunday 13 May 2018.

The Premier League fixtures will be released though at 9am on Wednesday 14 June.

That is exactly in 85 days time, though if promotion is secured, Newcastle fans will of course have to watch our for the bogus ‘in the know’ ones that will be circulated via the internet/social media.
