Premier League festive schedule: Confirmed matches for 2022/23

The fixtures for the 2022/23 Premier League season have been confirmed as we draw ever closer to a new campaign.

Managers usually glance at the December and January months with a grimace, but things will be different this year due to the World Cup taking place in the winter.

Here are all the games scheduled to take place around Christmas time and how Qatar 2022 will affect the Premier League.

The third round of the FA Cup will also take place on the weekend of 7 January, with 20 Premier League and 24 Championship sides joining the competition at that stage.

Selections on games broadcasters wish to show will be announced later on during the season. Dates and kick-off times remain subject to change.

Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video have broadcast rights and will be showing games live over the festive period. The BBC also show highlights on Match of the Day.

As the World Cup in Qatar is being held in the winter months of November and December, the Premier League will take a six-week break to accommodate the competition.

That break will begin on 14 November and end on 26 December, eight days after the World Cup final.

To get all the games in, the Premier League is starting a week earlier and finishing a week later too.
