The Premier League season has confirmed the 2021/2022 will start August 14 and finish on May 22, 2022.
The current Premier League campaign did not start until September 12.
This was due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and will run until May 23 this year.
An earlier start date of August 7 had been reportedly discussed for the upcoming season.
But clubs were against the idea due to the upcoming rescheduled Euro 2020 tournament – the final of which will take place on July 11.
Pushing the start back by one week means there is no overlap with the start of the English Football League season.
