The release of the Premier League fixtures for the 2023/24 season has taken place.
The champions of the Championship and Premier League face off in the first fixture of the season with Burnley welcoming Manchester City.
The 2023/24 season will start on Friday 11 August 2023. The final match round will be on Sunday 19 May 2024, when all fixtures will kick off simultaneously as usual.
The season schedule returns to normal following the COVID-19 pandemic and the FIFA World Cup 2022, which has caused disruption across three consecutive seasons.
Mid-season break returns
In keeping with commitments made to clubs this season to address the congested festive schedule, no two rounds across Christmas and New Year will take place within 48 hours of each other.
The schedule also provides for a return of the mid-season player break, where the 10 matches will be split over the weekends of 13-20 January.
The 2023/24 season will consist of:
- 34 weekends
- three midweek rounds
- one Bank Holiday match round
The start date of Friday 11 August allows 75 clear days from the end of the 2022/23 season.
With the Premier League finishing on 19 May 2024, it will also allow players rest between the end of the season and the international fixtures in June.
You will be able to download all the fixtures to your digital device when they are released on 15 June with the Premier League's digital calendar.
