The Premier League is one of the most-watched and followed football leagues in the world, and fans are always curious about when the next season will begin. The league is home to some of the best football clubs, players, and coaches, and fans eagerly anticipate each new season. While the start date for the next season may seem far away, fans are already gearing up for the next campaign, and preparations are already underway behind the scenes.

The Premier League 2023-24 season dates have been confirmed, the first matchday kicks off on Saturday, 12 August 2023. August-May is the standard time when the Premier League runs every year, with each team playing 38 games over the course of the season. The final round of matches will be played on Sunday, 19 May 2024, when all the matches will kick off simultaneously.

How clubs and fans are preparing for the new season?

The new season returns to normal schedule following the COVID-19 pandemic and the FIFA World Cup 2022, which provided disruption during the previous three seasons. No two rounds will take place within 48 hours across Christmas and New year to avoid the congested, and heavy workload.

The schedule also provides a mid-season player break, which will take place between 13-20 January. The season will consist of 34 weekends, three-midweek rounds, and one Bank Holiday match round. The start date of Saturday 12 August allows 76 clear days from the end of the 2022-23 season. With the Premier League finishing on 19 May 2024, it will also allow players to rest between the end of the season and the international fixtures in June.

The clubs have already started planning their schedule post the end of this season, including players they are going to target in the summer transfer window to planning their pre-season schedule to allow players to get ready for the upcoming season. Not only the clubs, players but fans around the world have started planning to go watch teams play in the pre-season. With clubs like Manchester United, who already have planned their pre-season in the United States, have given fans in the United States a chance to see their favourite team and players play.

Since WHO has declared that COVID-19 is no longer a pandemic, the clubs and fans are more determined to make the most of the upcoming season and support their teams in the best way possible.
