Albion will kick-off the new campaign in just 59 days on August 14 just a few weeks after the Euro 2020 final - where England will surely hold aloft the trophy at a sun-kissed Wembley Stadium.

That may or may not happen of course but what is certain is that the Premier League never sits idle for long and Brighton will once more compete in the top flight for a club record-breaking fifth consecutive season after Graham Potter safely guided them to a 16th placed finish last season.
