When is the 2022/23 season Premier League schedule released?
No sooner has the dust settled on the 2021/22 campaign but thoughts now turn to the new season, which will be truncated with the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
The 2022/23 season will be unique given that, for the first time in history, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be hosted in November and December and not in the traditional summer months of June and July. Given that the average daytime temperature in Qatar in both June and July exceeds 40C/100F, the prudent decision was taken to move the competition to the more temperate Qatari winter.
This calendar shift will impact on leagues around the world with domestic competitions coming to a halt while the World Cup is ongoing and this has prompted the English Premier League to start the season a week earlier than the previous campaign.
Premier League 22/23 key dates
The first fixtures will be scheduled for 6 August 6, 2022, giving players a break of around two and a half months from Premier League action.
The final set of pre-World Cup fixtures in the Premier League will be staged over the weekend of 12-13 November.
The World Cup gets underway on 21 November with the final scheduled for 18 December with Premier League action set to resume on 26 December. The final round of matches of the campaign will be played on 28 May 28, 2023.
