2018-19: City will find out their Premier League calendar on Thursday

The World Cup starts on Thursday – but before the tournament curtain raiser between host nation Russia and Saudi Arabia, the 2018/19 Premier League fixtures will be released.

With City looking to defend the Premier League crown, there's not long to wait before we discover who we will play on the opening weekend of the season, what kind of run we will face over the Christmas period and the difficulty of our final few matches.  

The fixtures for the coming campaign will be released at 9am on Thursday June 14.

As ever, some fixtures will be subject to change due to TV coverage. More information on which games are to be aired live will be available in early July.

2018-19 key dates for your diary

The Premier League season gets under way on the weekend of August 11 and 12 and concludes on Sunday May 12, 2019.

The Carabao Cup kicks off on the week commencing August 13, but City, current holders of the trophy, will enter the tournament at the third-round stage given our Champions League involvement.

Indeed, our European campaign will begin in September, with the group stage set to start on September 18/19.

And the FA Cup first round proper has been slated for the weekend of November 10/11, with City set to enter at the third-round stage, scheduled for the first weekend in January. 

One fixture we already know is our Community Shield match against FA Cup winners Chelsea. That will take place on August 5 at Wembley Stadium.

And, don’t forget, the transfer window will close earlier this year. All deals will have to be concluded before the season starts, with the deadline now set at 5pm on August 9.

Stay tuned on mancity.com for all the news around this season's fixtures as soon as they are released.
