The 2020 summer transfer window will open in less than two weeks, on July 27, the day after the last day of the league season, and run for 10 weeks after that, closing on October 5. There will an additional eleven days after that for domestic-only transfers as well, between the Premier League and EFL (divisions 2-4) clubs.

Those dates were officially announced by the Premier League today, and are technically still subject to FIFA approval, but that’s surely just a formality.

The dates roughly match most big European leagues, especially the all important deadline day. While the German, Spanish, and Italian windows will open on different dates (July 15, August 4, and September 1, respectively), they are all set to close slam shut on October 5.

With the new season set to start on September 12, the window will overlap the first few weeks as usual. The brief, two-year experiment to close the window before the start of a season in the Premier League is now truly dead.
