That will mean five matches per round instead of the current four with the Gold Coast United being the other team to join the league in the 2009/10 season.
If the current format of teams playing each other three times continues, this will mean a 27 match round season which will mean more matches to tip on TispChallenge.
The fixture list was first was announced in June but this showed all fixtures at 3 pm local time for day matches and 7:45 pm for night matches but then the matches are then rescheduled to cater for television and other local security demands.
So the Gunners will kickoff the new season at the Emirates against the newly promoted Baggies.
The last match of the first round will see defending champions Manchester United take on Newcastle United on Sunday.
Newcastle lost heavily in the same fixture last season and they will be hoping for a better start this season.
The fixtures on TipsChallenge will be updated to reflect the changes over the coming few days.
This is the exact number of goals scored as at Euro 2004 and the second highest. Euro 2000 still holds the record for the highest number of goals scored with 85. Far less were scored in England in 1996 with just 64.
Only two matched were decided by a penalty and one of them involved the eventual winners Spain who beat Italy on penalties and the other one was the Turkey/Croatia match.
Of the 77 goals scored, 25 were scored in the first half with 52 scored in the second half.
The table below shows how much each team contributed to the 77 goals tally and it also shows how many goals were scored in each half.
|Team||Matches||First Half||Second Half||Total Goals|
So nearly two thirds of the goals were scored in the second half were 52 goals were goals were scored compared to first half's 25.
Turkey in particular scored 8 goals and only one of those goals was in the first half and that was in the semi-final match against Germany.
