The Month Of August Is An Absolute Feast Of Football

The Month Of August Is An Absolute Feast Of Football

We're just a couple of days away from August, a month that is filled with football.

From the 1 August right up to 29th, there is a whole lot of action to feast our eyes upon. It all kicks off with the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal at Wembley, before we have the National League and Championship play-off finals on 2 August and 4 August respectively.

European football returns with eight games of Europa League action involving the likes of Manchester United, Wolves, Inter Milan, Sevilla, Roma, Bayer Leverkusen, Rangers and more across 5 August and 6 August before the second legs follow just under a week later.


The Champions League is back with a bang as the final round of 16 second legs take place. Juventus vs Lyon and Manchester City vs Real Madrid are on 7 August, as well as Bayern Munich vs Chelsea and Barcelona vs Napoli a day later.

The final stages of the competition will take place in the city of Lisbon in quick succession, with quarter finals action on 12, 13, 14 and 15 August.

In fact, starting from the 10 August right up until the Europa League final and Champions League finals on 21 August and 23 August respectively, there's a knockout game from the two UEFA club competitions on every day bar two
