2018/19 fixtures released at 9am tomorrow


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The 2018/19 Premier League fixtures are released at 9am on Thursday morning, and you'll be able to get all the Cherries' news here on the site.

All 380 Premier League fixtures for the upcoming campaign - including 38 involving AFC Bournemouth - will go live on afcb.co.uk at 9am, though the TV dates and potential date changes for August and September won't be announced until early July. 

When does it all get under way?

For 2018/19, the big kick-off is 11th August.

That will give you 27 days to recover from the World Cup and the final in Russia, which takes place in Moscow on 15th July.

What about the end of the transfer window this year?

There'll be no end of August deadline dash this summer, with Premier League clubs voting last year to bring the deadline forwards to before the start of the season.

So, on Thursday August 9th at 5pm - two days before the matches get started - all Premier League transfer business will have to be concluded.

Could the season start with successive home or away matches for the Cherries?

No, the season's fixtures are put into 'sequences'. This means that fixtures are planned so that in any five matches there should be a split of three home fixtures and two away, or the other way round.

The Premier League also aims to ensure that no club starts or ends the season with two home or two away games.

What can we expect for the congestion around Christmas?

As normal, there is a fixture date scheduled for Boxing Day 2018, and the teams that are home on that date can expect to be away for the New Year's Day fixture - or vice versa.

Will the recently-announced winter break be in effect in 2018/19?

Not for next season. Last week a staggered winter break was announced which will see half the league's sides play one weekend, the other half the following weekend, meaning each team will get a weekend off during February.

However, the changes are not scheduled to come into play until the 2019/20 season, with the FA believing it will help the senior England side to succeed at future international competitions.

When does the season draw to a close?

The season is scheduled to draw to its conclusion on Sunday 19th May.
