A double gameweek is a vital part of Fantasy Premier League. It consists of teams having more than one fixture in a given Gameweek.
Many managers will want to know when a DGW will first occur in FPL 2022/23. 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.

Potential Double Gameweek
Due to fixture schedules it can often be determined ahead of time where double gameweeks will fall.
When this information becomes apparent for the 2022/23 season we will share potential (but not confirmed) double gameweeks here.
Current Postponed Unscheduled Fixtures

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.
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 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.
