The countdown is on to the start of the Premier League season and one of the key factors for fans will be the exact dates Brentford are playing their matches. Brentford's first ever Premier League game will be the first in the 2021/22 top flight. We will welcome Arsenal to our new stadium on Friday 13 August for a match that will kick-off at 8pm and be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
If any fans have not seen the full fixture schedule, it is available here. The Bees have three games in August with matches away to Crystal Palace and Aston Villa to follow the Arsenal clash. Broadcast selections for August have been chosen.
The Premier League and its clubs will announce further broadcast selections in due course, with the season broken into periods. Selections for period one, which also includes the final weekend in August and September should be completed by Monday 5 July. And supporters can expect to be informed of broadcast selections for periods two to eight between the following dates:
|Selection Period||Start Date||End Date|
|Two (October fixtures)||7 July||6 August|
|Three (November fixtures)||31 August||16 September|
|Four (December and January fixtures)||17 September||11 October|
|Five (February fixtures)||18 November||14 December|
|Six (March fixtures)||2nd working day in January||24 January|
|Seven (April fixtures)||27 January||21 February|
|Eight (May fixtures)||21 March||4 April|
Those dates may alter and fixtures will be shifted for other reasons. This will include when teams are in European competition or if games are moved for other cup ties. When fixture changes are announced, the Premier League publishes a fixture amendment document like PL Fixture Amendments 2 - 2021-22.pdf. Brentford FC will keep fans informed of fixture changes when they are confirmed.
