The 2021–22 Premier League will be the 30th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs since its establishment in 1992. This will be the third season to use the video assistant referee (VAR) review system and it will be the second season to have February winter break. The start and end dates for the season were released on 25 March 2021. The fixtures are set to be released on Wednesday 16 June 2021 at 09:00 BST. Manchester City are the defending champions, having won their fifth Premier League title in the previous season.

Teams

Twenty teams will compete in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season and the three teams promoted from the Championship. The promoted teams are Norwich City, Watford (who both return to the top flight after a year's absence) and Brentford (who will play in the top flight in its current form for the first time in their history and returns after a seventy-four year absence). They will replace Fulham, West Bromwich Albion (both teams relegated after only a year back in the top flight) and Sheffield United (relegated after two years back in the top flight).
