How the Premier League fixture list is compiled

The countdown to the new Premier League season is on, with the 2024/25 fixtures being released at 09:00 BST on Tuesday 18 June. 

Who will champions Manchester City start their title defence against? Who will the promoted teams face first up? Who will everyone get on the final day?

Details of all 380 matches will be revealed on premierleague.com and the official Premier League app.

Get the fixtures automatically

You can get all the 2024/25 fixtures downloaded straight to your mobile device as soon as they are released through the Premier League's digital calendar. You can set it up right now to avoid having to lift a finger on Tuesday morning.

Analysis and insight

The Premier League app and premierleague.com is the place to come not only for all 380 fixtures.

We will also identify the biggest matches to look forward to so you can bookmark key dates across the season, as well as pulling out the standout storylines for teams, managers and players on the opening weekend of 17 August and beyond.

Furthermore, we will rank each team's fixtures to determine which club have in theory the easiest and toughest start and end to the season. 

FPL planning

For Fantasy Premier League managers, The Scout will analyse the 2024/25 fixtures to determine which players to target for the opening Gameweeks.

There will also be the release of the 2024/25 Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), which will enable FPL managers to see which clubs to target and who to avoid for the start of the season. 

While you wait...

While you wait for 09:00 BST, we have looked at the numbers to reveal which teams you should cross your fingers and hope to avoid on the opening weekend.

Chelsea and Manchester United, for example, are Matchweek 1 experts, while other teams seem to have a bit of a hoodoo and facing them first up could give your team the best chance of making a flying start to 2024/25. 

How fixture list is compiled

Ever wondered exactly how the fixtures are decided? Producing the full fixture list is the result of a meticulous and painstaking process that lasts almost half a year and involves the scheduling of 2,036 matches across the top four divisions. 

Fixture-list compiler Glenn Thompson, of Atos, an international IT services company, explains how it all works. 

2024/25 season details 

The 2024/25 season will consist of 33 weekends, four midweek rounds of matches and one Bank Holiday Matchweek. 

The campaign will start on the weekend of 17 August 2024. The final match round of the 2024/25 season will be played on 25 May 2025, when all matches will kick off simultaneously as usual.

In keeping with previous commitments made to clubs to address the congested schedule across Christmas and New Year, arrangements will be made to allow more rest time over three of the festive match rounds, with no club playing within 60 hours of another match. There will be no fixture on 24 December 2024.

The mid-season break has also been removed from the calendar to allow a mid-August start date for the Premier League.

This longer summer break allows all Premier League clubs to be better able to ensure that players get a consecutive three-week break in the summer. This takes into account expert advice from medical and technical departments, which values a longer period of complete rest in the summer rather than a short break in the winter.
