Last updated: 24 Aug 10:50

Football fans can rest assured that they will not have to wait long before they can enjoy football from the leading championships of the old continent again. In reality, they will not even have to wait at all because the French, the Scottish, the Belgium championships already started. The new winners of the European club tournaments are clear - Sevilla and Bayern Munich. Hegemon of the Europa League Sevilla won the second strongest tournament again while Bayern Munich managed to record a trophy-treble (the Champions League, Bundesliga, and DFB Pokal) in this strange season. The Bavarians beat PSG in the finals of the Champions League in the next few months they will be the sole "kings" of Europe.

The only thing that football fans still wait for is the ability to be able to attend the matches of their favourites, but we sincerely hope that this will happen soon too as the football is not the same without the full stadiums. In our fresh article, we would like to share with you some verified information about the start of the new season in all 5 major leagues, which will help you to build your betting strategy from the very beginning.

Top Five Major Football Leagues

England Premier League

Start date:September 12 2020

End Date: May 23 2021

Liverpool will start defending their Premier League title with the rookie Leeds. This set the lot for the program for the next campaign in the English elite. The championship begins on September 12 and will last until May 23.

Manchester United will meet Burnley at Old Trafford while their fellow citizens Manchester City will host Aston Villa. However, these two matches will not be played over the weekend in question but will be postponed to a later date. This was decided after the clubs from Manchester played late in the Champions League and Europa League. Thus, in reality, United and City will play their first matches in the second round on September 19.

Two days later, on September 14, Wolverhampton will start its journey. Wolverhampton and Chelsea, which also played in the European tournaments in August, asked for a delay for their very first games, which will be considered by the officials.

The new season in the Premier League will be shortened with five weeks than usual due to its later beginning and the upcoming European Championship next summer. For this reason, the winter break, which was introduced during the last campaign, is also dropped.

The draw for the first round on September 12:

Burnley - Manchester United (postponed for a later date)

Tottenham - Everton

Crystal Palace - Southampton

West Bromwich - Leicester

Fulham - Arsenal

West Ham - Newcastle

Liverpool - Leeds

Brighton - Chelsea

Manchester City - Aston Villa (postponed for a later date)

Sheffield United - Wolves
