On the eve (Tuesday 13 June) of the fixtures being released, Sky Sports revealed that fans of Premier League clubs will have to wait at least two and a half weeks after today’s’s fixture release, before being able to plan the first two months of the season.

Sky Sports say it will be ‘early July’ when they confirm the Premier League live TV games, with presumably BT Sport announcing their August/September live games at the same time.

Other important/not so important dates in your diary for the meantime:

15 June – New (2017/18) Newcastle United replica kit goes on sale

19 June – Season tickets on sale for seats currently vacant

26 June – Closing date for Season Ticket holders to renew

Early July – Sky Sports say Live TV games will be  announced ‘Early July’ for fixtures in August and September, with BT Sport presumably announcing their choices at the same time as normal.

22 July – First team friendly at Preston – 3pm kick-off

26 July – First team friendly at Bradford – 7.30pm kick-off

    I’ll take that list of fixtures to start our season. On paper there are plenty of winnable games in that first 10 games

    • Leazes Ender

      You have some inside knowledge of transfers?

      • rob taplin

        No, just optimistic unlike yourself and lot of others on this site who are all doom and gloom

  • Steve Smith

    Tough december but the list looks quite kind other than that.

    • Lord

      You’re right, December is looking crazy, hope we have a good stack of points by then. Need a good start.

    • csh

      Most months look fairly well balanced, my first thought was same as yours also.

  • hetonmag

    Lovely first start always best to kick off at home doesn’t matter who it’s against

  • Alex

    Great list. Very few clumps of difficult fixtures together – pretty well spread out.

  • Simon Ritter

    I’m guessing the first “matchday” could be any time from Friday night to Monday night, thanks to our lords and masters in TV land. Murdoch’s wish to show live top-flight football seven days a week is almost granted. Travel/accommodation impossible to organise, except for final match of the season. The full and almost full houses at SJP are yet more evidence football is a drug that’s crazily addictive.
