Premier League Fixtures Announced for a Unique Season

Champions Manchester City faces West Ham away on the opening weekend of a 2022-23 Premier League campaign that will include a mid-season break for the World Cup in Qatar.

There will be no top-flight games after the weekend of November 12-13 until December 26 because of the World Cup.

The first fixture takes place on Friday, August 5 when Crystal Palace hosts Arsenal.

Liverpool plays at promoted Fulham, with Nottingham Forest at Newcastle.

Forest is back in the Premier League for the first time since 1998-99.

The World Cup, which will feature both England and Wales, starts on November 21. The final is on 18 December, eight days before the Premier League season resumes.

There are no meetings between the Premier League’s so-called ‘big six’ on the weekend of November 12-13 – the one before the World Cup – following a request by the Football Association.

England will meet up on November 14 before flying to Qatar the following day.

Special arrangements have been made to allow more time between games played across the three festive match rounds.

This will allow squads greater time to recover. Previously clubs were given a minimum of 48 hours between matches.

After fixtures on December 26-27, the following match round will be played across December 29, 30, and 31. The New Year match round will be played on January 2, 3, 4, and 5.
