As of next season, we are officially a Premier League side again! Yep, Steve Cooper did the impossible this year and took us from the relegation zone to an unforgettable victory in the Wembley playoff final. The fixture list came out on Thursday, June 16th, and here's a few quick stats for the new era until the season starts:

Our last Premier League game was on May 16, 1999 and was a 1-0 win against Leicester City. (In fact, after we were relegated with three games to go we won all three remaining fixtures). The new season starts on Aug 6th, 2022 so, if we play on that Saturday, it will be our first game in the Premier League for 23 years, 2 months, 21 days.

Since that last game in the Premier League we spent 20 seasons in the Championship, 3 seasons in League One, and played 1058 league games and 11 play-off games.

Our first game is on August 6th, away at Newcastle United who we've played three times before on opening day and haven't lost yet. Two draws and 5-1 win is our opening day record against them.

Speaking of August 6th, we have yet to lose a competitive game on that date! Seeing as it's an earlier start to the season (due to the World Cup in Qatar forcing a mid-season break) we've only played 4 proper games on the day, but won three and drawn one. Check out results on August 6th here.
And just in case we're selected for a Friday night opener? No probs...we have a 100% record on August 5th. But Sunday? Ouch. We've played 6 and not won a single game on August 7th.

We also get to visit two new grounds. Both Spurs and West Ham have had new homes since we last met them away, so we have our first trips to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and London Stadium next year. See more at The 92 Club on the statistics page.
