  • 15 August - The first Premier League football matches are played. Brian Deane of Sheffield United is the scorer of the first Premier League goal. Meanwhile, financially troubled Division Three side Maidstone United have their first game of the season cancelled and are given 48 hours to guarantee that they will be able to fulfill this season's fixtures.
  • 17 August - Maidstone United resign from the Football League after the club's directors gave up hope of being able to fulfill this season's fixtures. They only joined the Football League three years ago.
