The Premier League on Tuesday, announced the dates for the 2023/2024 campaign.
The season will start on August 12, which leaves a gap of 76 days from the current season concluding on May 28.
It will mark a return to normality for the schedule. This follows three seasons of disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Qatar World Cup this winter.
The season will end on May 19 2024. This means players involved in the Champions League final on June 1, have fewer than two weeks before Euro 2024.
Euro 2024 kicks off on June 14, while other Premier League players will have under four weeks.
The August 12 start date for next season will allow clubs to have seven weeks from the post-season international break concluding on June 20.
They will have even further from the final Premier League weekend. While the Champions League final on 10 June takes place eight weeks before the start date.
This may allow clubs to undertake lucrative pre-season tours which have been hampered over recent seasons.
Opening weekend dates have been disrupted over previous years with the 2020-21 campaign not kicking off until September 12 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. And the delayed conclusion to the 2019-20 season.
2021/2022 began on August 14 following Euro 2020. Which was pushed back by a year, before this season got underway on August 6.
