Premier League dates for NEXT season

I know the World Cup is just about to start but.....

I was looking at the dates for NEXT season, and was staggered at the dates of the early rounds of the European competitions.

The draw for the Champions league qualifying rounds is on the 21st June (less than 2 weeks away), and they play the first leg on 29th and 30th June (before the World Cup finishes !).

The draw for the Europa League qualifying games is also on the 21st June, and they play the first leg on July 1st.

In fact there are THREE qualifying rounds for the Champions League AND the Europa League before the Premier league season starts on 14th August.

Oh, and we have an England friendly against Hungary on the 11th August, three days before our Premier season starts.

That should be popular with all the Premier league managers (I can imagine Fergie and Wegner having a moan that week).

Wiki details for next years Champions League and Europa League.

I wonder who City will get? :w00t:

You forgot to mention the Community Shield which will take place a few days before the England friendly.

Man City dont enter till the "play off" round which is drawn on the 6th August and played on the 19th and 26th August.

Mind you, that is only a few days after the Premier League starts so they need to hit the ground running.

Aston Villa also join in the play off round, but Liverpool have to play in the 3rd Qualifying round (played 29th July and 5th August)
