The season 2021/22 ended and Fantasy Premier League managers can recharge their energy before the start 2022/23 FPL season. It is time to recap the season, think about what went good and what went wrong and learn from mistakes in order to improve fantasy skills.
Some managers will slowly start to prepare their minds, your tactics, and strategy for the next season. So, when will Fantasy Premier League 2022/23 start? And what are other important dates FPL managers should know?
When does Premier League 2022/23 season start?
The most important date of all. Premier League 2022/23 season starts on August 6, 2022. It is a bit sooner than usual due to the World Cup break during the winter.
So, FPL managers will have around 2 and a half months for (active) rest from the gameweek to gameweek action.
Winter Break due to World Cup 2022
The season will pause after Gameweek 16 because of World Cup 2022. The last matches are scheduled to be played on November 13.
Fifa World Cup 2022 starts on Monday 21 November 2022 and the final is scheduled for 19. December 2022.
Premier League winter break is scheduled for: 14 November – 25 December.
The Premier League will resume with Gameweek 17 on Boxing Day 26 December.
The last gameweek of FPL 22/23
And the last matches of the season (gameweek 38) will be played simultaneously on 28 May 2023
When will Fantasy Premier League 2022/23 start?
Looking at the last season, FPL launched on 23 June – 51 days before the first kick-off (13 August). It was uncommon for FPL to launch so early before the Premier League season launch.
Usually, Fantasy Premier League launches 25-45 days before the first gameweek.
Official FPL also gave us a clue about the game launch on their twitter:
👋 #FPL will be released in July
— Fantasy Premier League (@OfficialFPL) June 24, 2022
So, we can expect that Fantasy Premier League 2022/23 will likely start between 1.7.2022 – 14.7.2022.
It could possibly be just one month after the deadline of gameweek 38…
In previous seasons, we were getting player price releases a week or two before the game launched. Make sure to follow Official FPL on twitter and when you see that they started to show player prices, the game launch will be very close.
It could be useful, especially to managers that aim to gain low FPL ID (FPL managers get their according to the time they created their teams.)
Having a low FPL ID is a small advantage. When FPL managers end up in the mini-league with the same amount of points, the top spot is awarded to the one who made the fewest transfers.
If they both made the same amount of transfers, they will share the top spot. But if the prize is at stake, a manager who register their FPL team sooner is awarded the prize.
So, low FPL ID can decide a tie-braker when the prize is at stake.
When will fixtures be released?
Fixtures for Premier League 2022/23 season will be released on Thursday 16 June 2022 from 09:00 BST. (you can convert time zones in Dateful Time Zone Converter)
