England will meet up on 14 November before flying to Qatar the following day.

Special arrangements have been made to allow more time between games played across the three festive match rounds.

This will allow squads greater time to recover. Previously clubs were given a minimum of 48 hours between matches.

After fixtures on 26-27 December, the following match round will be played on 29, 30 and 31 December. The New Year match round will be played on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 January.

The 2022-23 season has been adjusted to accommodate the 2022 World Cup, which takes place in the middle of the domestic calendar.

It starts a week earlier than normal – 75 days after the final day of the 2021-22 campaign – and finishes a week later than usual on 28 May.

Fifa, world football’s governing body, has already stipulated that players must be released on 14 November for the World Cup.

It means the mid-season break will last more than six weeks.

There will be 16 matchdays before Qatar – five in August, three in September, six in October and two in November.
