When does the 2020 NFL Schedule come out?

The 2019 NFL season just officially ended with the Kansas City Chiefs as Super Bowl champions and San Francisco 49ers fans are eager to start over in 2020 to avenge their loss. But let’s face it, it’s not just 49ers fans looking ahead. It’s all of us, we all hope that 2020 will be our team’s year … or for Chief’s we believe we can defend our new Super Bowl title.

Some of us are eager for the 2020 NFL schedule for practical reasons … like which dates the rival team will be in town so we can plan our “flu” and call out from work. Some of us hope to travel to a game so we need dates to plan hotels and time off from work.

Unfortunately, we have a bit more time to wait because the schedule probably won’t be out until mid-April. Vividseats projects the date will be April 16 based on the following release dates:

  • 2019 – April 17
  • 2018 – April 19
  • 2017 – April 20
  • 2016 – April 14
  • 2015 – April 21
  • 2014 – April 23
  • 2013 – April 18
  • 2012 – April 17
  • 2011 – April 19
  • 2010 – April 20

Generally, the entire schedule is released at once, but sometimes leagues will announce something early or the schedule gets leaked early. We’re also expected to hear the international schedule with games in London and Mexico expected.

There are some things we do know already. The NFL 2020 season begins on Sept. 10 and will end on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021. The first game will be on Thursday Night Football.
