Barcelona LaLiga schedule for 2022/23

This season, Xavi’s Barcelona will be aiming to go one better after staging a remarkable comeback to end last season as runners-up behind Real Madrid in LaLiga.

Barça, who will be looking to win their first LaLiga title since 2019, kick off the 2022/23 season by welcoming Rayo Vallecano to Camp Nou on the weekend of the 13/14 August. That is followed by a tough trip to San Sebastián then back home for Valladolid’s visit in Week 3.

Real Madrid LaLiga schedule for 2022/23

LaLiga 2022-23 fixtures: opening weekend, El Clásico...

The new 2022-23 LaLiga season kicks off on 12 August 2022 and the fixtures have been released for all 20 clubs. Let’s have a look at some of the key dates for your diary...

Full story

And the schedule for the final weekend of action, on 4 June, 2023.

And here's confirmation of the first matchday of the 2022-23 Liga season.

18 September and 26 February will see the two Madrid derbies between Real Madrid and Atlético.

The Clásicos have been set: 16 October, 2022 and 19 March, 2023. 

Barcelona are at home to Rayo, Real Madrid are away at Almería and Atlético travel across town for the mini-derby at Getafe.

Here we go! The computer has done its thing and the first weekend of action has been decided!

We will let you know what that number will throw up as soon as the RFEF has figured it out. It will take a couple of minutes we're informed.

And the final two balls are out, 51158 is the winning number.

Alfonso Pérez pulls out another 1, so we're now we're at 511.

Luis Milla has pulled out the number 1, which logically gives us 51. Three more to go, then perhaps we'll be afforded an explanation as to the significance of the five-digit result.

Goodness, that was just the first number of five (we think) and they seem determined to drag this out as long as possible. Not a bad moment to stick the kettle on, this may take a while...

There are indeed balls, with five tombolas on the go. The first one will decide the calendar itself, from 100,000 possible outcomes we're told. The maths escape us but let's see what comes out...

And here we go... the men in suits are ready to let us know what's what: 380 games to be calculated.

We do wonder what sort of effect the World Cup will have on the traditional order of things here... there was of course the Christmas Clásico a few years back, but that has now been made impossible due to the international schedule. November / December and March / April tend to be the favoured dates but will we see a surprise? There's no Super Cup to contend with at the start of the season these days with the tournament now taking place after the winter break, that was surely a consideration beforehand.

We have about 15 minutes to go until the balls start rolling (not that we think they use actual balls a la UEFA but...). Last season, Barcelona were at home against La Real in week 1, Real Madrid travelled to Alavés and Atlético were away at Celta.

Unlikely August Clásico

If you were eyeing up a trip to either Madrid or Barcelona in August to coincide with arguably the biggest club match in the world, you may want to reconsider.

This fixture has never fallen in the eight month of the year. Here are your likely dates...

Barcelona announce stadium move for Camp Nou revamp: where will they play?

This season will also be the last for Barcelona at Camp Nou - at least temporarily and in its current guise - as the club announced recently they will be moving house for the 2023/24 season for renovation work to commence on Europe's largest football stadium.

Zidane turns 50

He may not be directly involved with Real Madrid any more but after everything he achieved at the club Zinedine Zidane's historical contribution will be eternal at the Bernabéu.

We won't pretend we hadn't completely forgotten about this... what price Ronaldo picking up the phone to bring The Beast back to the José Zorrilla?

Ahead of the Liga schedule announcement today, here's a rather lovely recap of all the ups and downs and such from across Europe's top five leagues last season. There are a few surprises in there, not least Bordeaux going down to Ligue 2. The European competitors for next season are all in there too.

Incredibly, the final make-up of the 2022/23 Spanish top flight was only finalized on Sunday when the lengthy playoff system in Segunda came to a end. Girona were confirmed as the final Primera side for the new campaign as they beat Tenerife and the Catalan side will join Almería and Valladolid at the top table for the coming season.

As we understand it, barring any last-minute changes (for which, of course, the Spanish football authorities are not at all notorious), the fixtures for the opening weekend will be announced and then the remainder will be decided by the RFEF computer and shot out in one go.

A World Cup first

It will be a different sort of season this year, with the World Cup to be played in November and December in Qatar. The LaLiga schedule runs from the weekend of 12 August to 4 June, allowing for a month off for players to go on international duty. The Liga stoppage will take place from 14 November to 29 December.

Eyes down for the Clásico

Of course, the games most people will be keeping an eye out for are the two Clásicos between Barcelona and Real Madrid, but there is plenty more on offer when the computer chugs into life and spits out the full fixture list: the Madrid, Basque, Seville, Catalan and Valencian derbies, for example, and of course the newly promoted clubs, who will be wondering when they travel to the Bernabéu, Camp Nou etc. Among these are Valladolid, owned by Real Madrid and Brazil great Ronaldo. 

Hello and welcome to AS USA's live coverage of the official announcement of the 2022-23 LaLiga fixture list. Things are due to get underway at 17:00 CEST at the Spanish Football Federation headquarters in Las Rozas, Madrid.
