The summer 2020 football schedule is going to be something else, with almost non-stop games even though the Premier League season is about to come to an end.

The final round of league fixtures is going to be played this weekend, with plenty still to play for in terms of Champions League qualification and relegation.

With the season being suspended back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s meant the 2019/20 campaign had to be finished late, with fixtures almost every day over June and July.

But it doesn’t end there, with plenty of football also scheduled in for this summer as the Champions League and Europa League get back underway before international football returns with the Nations League.

Remarkably, by the time all that is done it leaves only a few days before the new Premier League campaign gets underway on September 12th.
