The Premier League has announced the 2023-24 campaign will include a mid-season break.

Following a number of disrupted campaigns owing to the coronavirus pandemic and the upcoming 2022 World Cup, the competition will return to normality next season.

The season is set to begin on August 12 – 76 days after the current campaign finishes – and conclude on May 19, two weeks before the Champions League final at Wembley.

A mid-season hiatus will take place early in 2024, with no matches scheduled between January 13 and 20.

The Premier League also stated in Tuesday's announcement no two rounds of games will be played within a 48-hour period to avoid congestion around the busy Christmas schedule.
