Serie A 2022/23: everything on the calendar and dates of an infinite season

The next season of Serie A will be an endless season, which is about to start as early as Friday, when the dates for the next championship will be made official. A championship that looks like a unicum of its kind: from the early start to the super late finish, in between a maxi break for the world championship. Meanwhile, the first numbers: departure Saturday 13 August 2022, final on 4 June 2023.

Covid excluded, among the championships from 2000 to today, only once has it gone so long. It was the 2000/01 season and the conclusion of the Sydney Olympics caused the start to be postponed a bit. Moral, it ended with Rome as champion of Italy even on June 17. This year no Olympics but, in fact, a middle World Cup.

Very long start: for a member of the big names, 23 games

Inter, official: Inzaghi has signed the renewal until 2024


A World Cup that distorts everything because it has never been seen in a winter version. And here begins the paradoxes of a season that for some could even become crazy. In this case, let’s start with the data. Before the expedition – for the others – to Qatar, they will be disputed 15 leave. Last year, at that point in the tournament, 12 were played, or three fewer. In here you have to get the European cups. Translation for a Milan, Inter, Napoli or Juventus player? If he were also called up for the national team, from mid-August to the end of November he could find himself playing 23 games: 15 in Serie A, 6 in the Champions League, 2 in the National team.

Potential madness for a Fiorentina member: 75 games

But not only. There is the potential example of Fiorentina, the team that will be the first to start in Europe with the long journey – we saw it with Roma – in the Conference League. Let’s suppose that the Viola cardholder is also a player who goes to the World Cup, between club and national team he could have to face in an entire season the insane figure of 75 games! Subdivided as follows: 38 in A, 17 in Conference, 5 in the Italian Cup and 15 in the National team (including friendlies, World Cups, Nations and European qualifiers). Obviously, it is a rough stretch, with Fiorentina at the bottom both in the Conference and in the Italian Cup, but in any case an option that is not impossible.

4 open market games, maxi winter break for the Italians

In the middle, of course, especially for the Italians, the world break. An important hole for the Azzurri, something to manage for all foreigners, who will have a small streak of vacation. It starts again on January 4th with an encore on 7-8. The other big unknowns are those linked to the market. With the summer closure on September 1st, the clubs will actually play 4 days at the open market. They are not few. Also not to be forgotten will be the non-symmetry of the calendar, introduced last season. The first leg will not follow the second leg, but will be in a new draw, exactly like in the Premier League and as already experienced last year. There will be stakes on some clashes and derbies, but these will only be made official at the time of the draw or a few hours before. So the appointment is on Friday 24 at 12:00 – live on the Youtube channel of the Lega Serie A, as well as on Dazn – to find out all the further details of a season that in some way will remain unique in its kind.
