Expected launch of Fantasy Premier League 2023/24

Learning from 2022/23 start

  • In 2022/23 season, FPL launched 5.7.2022 – 32 days before the first kickoff
  • Game started updating at 16:00 (UK, London time)
  • Approximately at 16:08 game went live
  • Price reveals were happening 1.7-4.7. 2022 – 5 days before the launch

Learning from 2021/22 start

Looking at the 2021/22 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.

When will Fantasy Premier League 2023/24 start?

Usually, Fantasy Premier League launches 25-45 days before the first gameweek.

So, we can expect that Fantasy Premier League 2023/24 will likely start between 28.6.2023 – 18.7.2023.

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 – like week away.

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 2023/24 fixtures be released?

Fixtures for Premier League 2023/24 season will be released at 09:00 BST on Thursday 15 June. (you can convert time zones in Dateful Time Zone Converter)
