Double Gameweek Schedule Fantasy Premier League

Page last updated: 23 March 2024

A double gameweek is a vital part of Fantasy Premier League. It consists of teams having more than one fixture in a given Gameweek.

This isn’t to be confused with having multiple GWs in one week.

Sometimes there are midweek GWs. These do not constitute a double gameweek – only when at least one team has two fixtures within one GW.

Many managers will want to know when the DGWs will occur in FPL 2022/23, so we try to shed some light on that below.

Naturally, DGWs present a great opportunity to garner more points. It’s also important to know when these double gameweeks are coming ahead so you can prepare your team accordingly.

The number of double gameweeks in a season depends on various factors.

GW37 will be another double gameweek for definite.

It will likely be comprised of:

  • Brighton: Newcastle (a) and Chelsea (H)
  • Chelsea: Notts Forest (a) and Brighton (a)
  • Man City: Fulham (a) and Tottenham (a)
  • Man Utd: Arsenal (H) and Newcastle (H)
  • Newcastle: Brighton (H) and Man Utd (a)
  • Tottenham: Burnley (H) and Man City (H)

Elsewhere, GW35 and GW36 will have two doubles between them. So, there could be two in GW35 or two in GW36 – or one in each.

Blank Gameweek

The only remaining blank gameweek this season is Tottenham in GW34.

Double Gameweek History

2022/23

They were 9 double gameweeks in FPL 2022/23.

They came in GW19, GW20, GW22, GW23, GW27, GW29, GW34, GW36, and GW37.

It should be noted a lot of these were only an additional fixture, though.

2021/22

There were a massive 10 double gameweeks in FPL 2021/22.

They were in GW22, GW23, GW26, GW28, GW29, GW31, GW33, GW34, GW36 and GW37.

2020/21

There were 4 double gameweeks in Fantasy Premier League 2020/21.

These came in GW19, GW24, GW26 and GW35.

Triple Gameweek

FPL managers love a double gameweek but a triple gameweek generates some excitement. Unsurprisingly they are a rare occurrence.

For example, Man Utd had a triple gameweek in the 2020/21 season. They faced Aston Villa (a), Leicester (H), and Liverpool (H).

However, these fixtures were played across a period of 5 days which meant their lineup was rotated.

They ended up beating Aston Villa but losing to both Leicester and Liverpool. They fielded a somewhat weakened side for the Leicester match.

This means that while a triple gameweek is undoubtedly a high-point scoring opportunity, you should consider the likeliness of player rotation and/or fatigue.
