The new Premier League football season is fast approaching
Date Posted: 09/08/12
The summer break is almost over for football fans up and down the country, so it's about time they book short breaks to catch their favourite club's opening fixture of the new Premier League season.
Kicking the proceedings off on Saturday, August 18th is a run of seven fixtures, including Arsenal vs Sunderland, QPR vs Swansea, West Brom vs Liverpool and Newcastle vs Tottenham.
Man City will begin their title defence against Premier League new boys Southampton on Sunday, August 19th at the City of Manchester Stadium, which kicks off at 16:00 BST.
Chelsea also begin their campaign at 13:30 BST on the same day against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium, hoping to build upon the last season's Champions League triumph with Premier League success.
Manchester United fans will have to wait the longest to see their team try to regain the Premier League title, as they commence their season away to Everton on Monday, August 20th.
