Newcastle fans now have 2021/22 Premier League (and Championship…) dates confirmed
Newcastle fans have only 58 days to go before they will know the fate of their club for sure.
Sunday 23 May 2021 brings the final round of matches and with Fulham v Newcastle one of those games, it is perfectly poised for neutrals.
If we don’t know which division Newcastle United will be playing in next (2021/22) season, that final fixture is increasingly looking likely to decide the matter.
Newcastle United now have nine Premier League matches remaining and the schedule is set out below, three games with days and kick-off times confirmed, the other six we are still waiting on the exact dates and timings.
Looking beyond that though, we now know when Newcastle United will kick off next season in the Premier League, if indeed NUFC survive.
Details have been released of the starting and finishing weekends of the Premier League 2021/22 season (dates in the schedule below), as well as those for the Championship…
A hectic summer is in prospect, whatever Newcastle fans sees happen with their club these remaining eight weeks of the current season.
Newcastle play Fulham on Sunday 23 May and then only 19 days later the European Championships kick-off on 11 June in Rome.
The final of the European Championships is at Wembley on Sunday 11 July and with the Premier League kicking off on the weekend of Saturday 14 August, there will only be five weeks for any Newcastle players to recover if involved in the Euros final.
Even less time if Newcastle are relegated, as the 2021/22 Championship season kicks off a week earlier than the Premier League, the weekend of Saturday 14 August.
Bottom line is that after Newcastle play Fulham on 23 May 2021, it will be 12 weeks until next season’s Premier League kicks off again, only 11 weeks until the Championship will start.
