Key dates for season 2022/23 – Premier League, Champions League, cups and more

    Another relentless season is on the cards for both domestic and international football in 2022/23, with the calendar jam-packed from August until June.

    With the Premier League, Champions League, League Cup and FA Cup, the season is already relentless but this time around there is the added factor of the World Cup in Qatar.

    It makes for an unprecedented season which will place extraordinary demands on the players who are selected to represent their country, while a six-week break awaits those not headed to Qatar.

    The club campaign is condensed from start to finish, the schedule has shifted but there are the same amount of games to get through over the course of nine months.

    Liverpool was involved in every game possible last season and if they are to do so again, the schedule looks very demanding.
