Premier League Fixtures & Kick-Off Times Confirmed For Opening Weekend

Nottingham Forest's first Premier League game since 1999 will be against Newcastle United on August 6.

Forest were promoted by winning last season's Championship play-off final against Huddersfield Town, ending their 23-year exile from the EPL.

The first Premier League fixture list featuring Forest in over two decades was published on Thursday.

In a break with tradition, the kick-off times for the opening weekend were confirmed at the same time as the fixtures. In previous years they had all been set provisionally at 3pm on Saturday, before being altered later based on selections by broadcasters.

Crystal Palace and Arsenal will begin the new season with the first 2022/23 edition of Friday Night Football on August 5.

The new season is starting slightly earlier in August than previous editions.

This is to accommodate the first ever winter World Cup in November and December. 

Sixteen rounds of EPL matches will take place before the competition stops on November 13 to allow players to join up with their international teams.

Eight days after the FIFA World Cup final in Qatar, the Premier League will resume on December 26.

The Premier League will then conclude on Sunday, May 28 with 10 games played simultaneously at 4pm (UK time).
