SAINTS supporters can expect to learn the Premier League schedule for next season within three weeks.

The Premier League 2022-23 fixtures will be revealed on Wednesday, June 15 – usually released around 8AM in the morning for all 20 teams.

Changes to the proposed fixture dates due to TV coverage will be made at a later date.

The Premier League’s 2022-23 season will kick off with an earlier start date of August 6, due to the unprecedented winter World Cup in Qatar.

The World Cup in Qatar is taking place in the winter time to avoid the extreme temperature of the Middle East during the summer.

It will start on November 21 with the group stage, while the final will take place on December 18.

The Premier League will stop play on November 13 and resume again on Boxing Day to accommodate the tournament.
