Premier League announce Cherries fixtures

AFC Bournemouth will begin their third season in the top flight of English football away at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion (12th August).

Their first home game at Dean Court will be the following week (19th August) to Watford.

Other key fixtures during the remainder of 2017 include hosting newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion on 16th September, travelling to the new Wembley to play Tottenham Hotspur on 14th October and hosting south coast neighbours Southampton on 2nd December.

In 2018, the Cherries travel to the Amex to face Brighton again on New Years Day, visit Premier League champions Chelsea on 31st January and make the trip to St Mary's to play Southampton on 28th April.

As always, expect the fixture list to be completely butchered by Sky Sports and BT Sport as they make their selections to screen 168 live games during the 2017/18 season.

Over 120 of those games will be shown across Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday on Sky Sports.

With over 40 games live on BT Sport across Saturday evenings and midweek.

Your Say...

Decent set of fixtures. Games against the top 6 are relatively well spread out which is helpful.

8 games in 5 weeks at the end of November through to New Year will be a big test.

November February and March look good for potential good point totals.

Liverpool, Man Utd and Saints in April all likely to be moved for TV.

All 3 promoted clubs play games against the top 6 last day of the season - expect to see some teary faces on your TV sets.
