Double Gameweek Schedule Fantasy Premier League

Page last updated: 24 March 2023

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 of time so you can prepare your team accordingly.

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

It’s unlikely the 2022/23 Premier League season will have as many postponements as 2021/22 but it certainly can’t be ruled out.

Double Gameweek History


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.


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 really 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 take into account the likeliness of player rotation and/or fatigue.
