With plenty still to be decided in thIs season’s EFL, the league has already announced dates for the 2022-23 campaign.
While Wednesday continue to fight for a play-off place this season on the way to what we hope will be an instant return to the Championship, the EFL has revealed that all three divisions will kick off early next season, to help accommodate the World Cup in Qatar in November and December.
The Championship, League One and League Two are all set to start on the weekend of Saturday, July 30, with the fixtures released on Thursday, June 23.
Then, with the World Cup taking place over a five-week period, the EFL programme will be adjusted, Championship games being halted after November 12 and restarting on December 10. Fixtures for Division One and Division Two will continue as normal.
The final day of the season in all three divisions will be across the weekend of Saturday, May 6, 2023 while the Sky Bet EFL Play-Off Finals are scheduled for May 27-29, 2023.
