Premier League Could Stop 9 Days Before 2022 World Cup

The Premier League and Championship seasons could stop just nine days before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar begins.

A draft calendar proposes the last round of top-flight matches to take place on November 12, with the tournament starting on November 21.

The World Cup final will take place in Doha on December 18, which means the Premier League could resume on Boxing Day 2022 - and there may be a shorter break in the Championship.

The mid-season player break, which comes into effect for the first time this season, is set to be scrapped for the 2022-23 campaign while the season may begin early and finish late as a result of the mid-season World Cup.

Premier League clubs have been sent draft proposals and will discuss the scheduling at their next shareholders' meeting on November 14. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
