The 2019-20 Premier League season doesn’t start until August, but many of the big clubs are touring around and playing preseason friendlies at home or overseas. Here is what I have managed to track down of these fixtures.

(Update 2020: There were no summer games in the US in 2020, for obvious reasons. Stay tuned for 2021 …)

If it just says “vs” somebody, that means it’s at home.
