Luton beat Coventry in the Championship play-off final to reach the Premier League. This start is one week later than the 2022/23 season, with the schedule returning to normal following the World Cup’s disruption last campaign. However, a winter break for players will return between January 12 and 20 after a busy Christmas period. During that period, the Premier League has committed to help out clubs and players with the usual fixture congestion by having no two rounds of fixtures taking place within 48 hours of each other. The final round of fixtures will take place on Sunday, May 19, 2024. All games will kick off at the same time, just as this season’s final day games took place.
