FPL 2022/23 – When the game starts, season begins, all key dates

The Fantasy Premier League season has just finished but that won’t stop FPL managers already begin to plan for the 2022/23 season.

FPL 2022/23 will play out differently this campaign due to the 2022 World Cup being held in the winter. That’s in addition to potential chip changes or even rule alterations.

When does the 2022/23 Premier League Season start?

The 2022/23 Premier League season begins on Saturday 6th August. However, this could change to Friday 5th August 2022 should a fixture be scheduled for then.

The previous season (2021/22) started a week later on Friday 13th August 2022.

When does the 2022/23 Premier League Season end?

The 2022/23 Premier League campaign will finish on Sunday May 28th 2023.

Like the start, this means the end of the PL 2022/23 will finish a week later than this season.

When does FPL start?

There is no official date for when you’ll be able to pick your 2022/23 FPL team.

It has been confirmed that the game will start in July. Based on last season, we would expect it to be in the first half of July.

Last season’s (2021/22) teams were available to select on Tuesday, June 22nd 2021. This was one week after all the fixtures were announced.

Alternatively, as the Premier League starts a week later this season, it could be June 29th should they not want to release too long before GW1.

Our FREE FPL Points Predictor tool will be updated well in advance of the new season, which will help with those extra tough decisions!

When are Premier League 2022/23 Fixtures announced?

The 2022/23 Premier League fixtures were revealed at 9am, Thursday June 16th 2022.

Our Fantasy Premier League fixture difficulty matrix has been updated to show them.

2022/23 Price Reveals

Given the game will release in July, we can expect price reveals for 2022/23 soon.

Last season the first one came on Monday, June 20th 2022.

Fantasy Premier League, interestingly, revealed lots of player’s prices just two days before the game went live.

This is in contrast to earlier seasons where FPL managers were allowed to fester on the price reveals for a lot longer.

We’ll have to wait and see whether there will be such a short gap between price reveals and the game going live this campaign, or whether they’ll revert to the gap of previous Fantasy Premier League seasons.

In the meantime you can check out all our FPL 2022/23 price predictions.

When does World Cup 2022 start?

The 2022 World Cup begins on Monday November 21st 2022. The tournament will finish on Sunday December 18th 2022.

Qatar will host the 2022 World Cup. This is why it will take place in the winter due to their high temperatures in the summer.

Consequently, the Premier League will take a 5 week break. The last set of PL fixtures will be over the weekend of November 12th/13th (GW16).

GW17 will begin on Boxing Day, Monday December 26th.
