There are, of course, 20 grounds across the country that are continually lit up by the best players in the Premier League on a regular basis with thousands of fans across the land piling into these steel behemoths.

RadioTimes.com has rounded up the complete list of Premier League stadiums to be used in 2021/22 including those of teams promoted from the second tier. Plus check out the full Premier League TV schedule.
