Domestic football will take a six-week break between Sunday 13 November and Monday 26 December for the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar.


ClaretandHugh says: That is as busy a season as imaginable and hopefully we will have a squad – complemented by our under 23 prospects – to finally land us a trophy after all these years. It’s not all good news of course for those of us who count ourselves as Saturday traditionalists with the possibility of very few games on that day. Only one last season. With the London Stadium capacity increased to 62,500 there is bound to be a tremendous atmosphere inside the ground which truly rocked at times last season. It seems as though it has been a very short summer!
