The Football Association also confirmed on Wednesday it would host the 2017/18 Premier League Championship and League One fixture between Newcastle and Manchester United at St James’ Park in the UK.
There is also an announcement on the possibility of playing two of the two fixtures at Wembley in the Premier Leagues in 2020/21, with both the FA Cup semi-finals and final between Newcastle United and Southampton to be played in the same venue.
For the 2017-18 campaign, the FA has also announced it will be staging the Premier league’s home games in the USA.
With more than 60,000 fans expected to watch the Premier division and Premier League, this could be a big year for the UK, with clubs around the world taking to the pitch at Wembley to see the best of the Premier leagues.
