On Thursday the Premier League's Annual General Meeting convenes, and it is at the AGM that the season officially changes from 2019/20 to 2020/21.
The Premier League Board of Directors then confirm 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. As required under company law, the three clubs then enter into the share register.
As a result 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, the Premier League website and app also receives a visual refresh.
The profiles in the clubs section of the site, and links to club websites and social media platforms will also be updated to reflect the 2020/21 line-up.
Leeds, West Brom, Fulham and the 17 other clubs can then look forward to the release of the fixtures for 2020/21, which kicks off on the weekend of 12 September.
