On Wednesday the Premier League's Annual General Meeting convened and it was at the AGM that the season officially changed from 2018/19 to 2019/20.
The Premier League Board of Directors then confirmed the cancellation of these shares.
A new share certificate for each of the promoted clubs is signed by the Premier League directors and company secretary and the three clubs entered into the share register, as required under company law.
The confirmation of the three promoted clubs as members of the Premier League is made at the AGM, with the League formally welcoming them as they are awarded their framed share certificates.
To mark the changing over to the new season, premierleague.com also receives a visual refresh.
Norwich, Sheffield Utd and Aston Villa, as well as the 17 other clubs, can then look forward to fixture release day on 13 June at 09:00 BST, to find out their opponents on the opening weekend of 10 August and for the rest of the season.
