Double Gameweeks are a vital part of Fantasy Premier League. They consist of teams having more than one fixture in a given Gameweek.
Naturally this presents a great opportunity to garner more points. It’s also important to know when these Double Gameweeks are coming ahead of time so you can prepare your team accordingly.
The number of Double Gameweeks in a season depends on various factors. The 2020/21 season is, of course, a unique one for obvious reasons.
Confirmed Double Gameweek(s)
Only GW19 has been confirmed to be a Double Gameweek so far. The following teams have two fixtures which are as follows:
- Aston Villa: Man City (a) and Newcastle (H)
- Burnley: West Ham (a) and Liverpool (a)
- Chelsea: Fulham (a) and Leicester (a)
- Fulham: Chelsea (H) and Man Utd (H)
- Leicester: Southampton (H) and Chelsea (H)
- Liverpool: Man Utd (H) and Burnley (H)
- Man City: Crystal Palace (H) and Aston Villa (H)
- Man Utd: Liverpool (a) and Fulham (a)
- Newcastle: Arsenal (a) and Aston Villa (a)
- West Brom: Wolves (a) and West Ham (a)
- West Ham: Burnley (H) and West Brom (H)
As these are confirmed you’ll be able to find them listed on our Fantasy Premier League Fixture Difficulty Matrix page.
Potential Double Gameweeks
Gameweek 29, 32 and 37 are where we could see postponed fixtures rescheduled.
GW26 and GW32 also have the potential to be blank for some teams. However, any postponed fixtures will likely be rearranged during that same Gameweek.
GW26 is when the League Cup final will take place. Elsewhere, GW29 is played alongside the FA Cup quarter finals but the days immediately following that are unavailable due to an International Break.
GW32 is when the FA Cup semi finals take place. Finally, GW37 is when the FA Cup final occurs. The free space during that midweek will be used to catch up on any unplayed fixtures.
Current Postponed Unscheduled Fixtures
The following fixtures were scheduled to be played earlier in the season but were postponed.
- Burnley vs Man Utd
- Aston Villa vs Newcastle
- Everton vs Man City
- Aston Villa vs Tottenham
- Leeds vs Southampton
These will all need to be played as part of a Double Gameweek.
Could there be a Triple Gameweek?
FPL managers love a Double Gameweek but a Triple Gameweek would really generate some excitement. Unsurprisingly they are a very rare occurrence but given the tight schedule, the already postponed fixtures and the potential for more, a Triple Gameweek is certainly possible.

Aston Villa are already two fixtures behind. They could be forced to play any outstanding fixtures very close to one another should they have a good cup run.
Elsewhere, Man City are still battling in all competitions and will therefore be top contenders for one.
Meanwhile Aston Villa are already playing catch up and have just had their Gameweek 18 fixture postponed. This means following GW18 they will have played fewer fixtures than any other Premier League team.
