But while the Premier League will not resume again until Boxing Day, it will get back up and running just under a month later on Saturday December 10 with a full round of fixtures, which includes the Lancashire derby between Blackburn at Preston at Ewood Park.

There will be three further matchdays before the end of 2022, with matches to be played on New Year’s Day, too. Three of the remaining 20 rounds of fixtures will be played in midweek.

The regular season comes to a close on Saturday May 6, with each match kicking off simultaneously at 3pm, and the play-off semi-finals will follow, though dates will be finalised for those fixtures closer to the time. The play-off final is set to take place at Wembley Stadium on Monday May 29 2023.

Key dates for the 2022/23 season

The Championship, League One and League Two seasons will begin on the weekend of July 30. This is one week earlier than the 2021/22 campaign started, and means teams will have a 12-week break between the seasons.

However, the Championship will take a break in the middle of the season to accommodate a winter World Cup for the first time. As a result, the fixtures taking over the weekend of November 12/13 will be the final ones before players are called up by their countries for the tournament travel to Qatar.

The Championship will then resume on Saturday December 10, eight days before the World Cup final, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday December 18.

League One and League Two will continue as planned throughout the tournament, though fixtures may be postponed depending on player involvement in the World Cup.

The FA Cup first round proper begins on the weekend of Saturday November 5, with the second round three weeks later and third round on the weekend of Saturday January 7. The final will be held at Wembley Stadium on Saturday June 3.

The Carabao Cup begins during the week commencing August 10, with round two a fortnight later and round three during the week commencing November 9. The final will also be held at Wembley on Sunday February 26.

The Papa John’s Trophy begins with the first group games on the week commencing August 31. The quarter-finals take place week commencing January 11, the semi-finals during the week commencing February 1 and the final will also be held at Wembley on Sunday March 19 2023.
