This is news that should make the breeders talk! The Team claim that the players called up for the 2022 World Cup, which will take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, will not be available for selection until November 14, a week before the start of the competition.
Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 must be changed
The organization of this winter CDM has really turned all calendars upside down. The Team reveals that a board of directors of the League, by videoconference, is scheduled for Wednesday, to find solutions to this problem. Whatever happens, next season should start on August 7 and end on the weekend of June 3-4, 2023. Many days will be played during the week. The last one before the World Cup will take place on November 12 and 13, 2022, just before the day before the gathering of the Blues. The idea of a “French Boxing Day” is not excluded to play matches during the holidays.
The Champions League will also be arranged
The calendar of European competitions will not escape the rule. The Champions League group stage will start on September 6 and 7, a week earlier than the usual date. No change is reported for the knockout matches, with the round of 16 scheduled for mid-February which will take place over a month. The UCL final will be played on June 10.
