Next season’s FA Cup final to be held in June for first time

Exclusive – League set for earliest start due to Qatar World Cup disruption

Next season’s FA Cup final will be played in June for the first time because of the fixture disruption caused by the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the league will have its earliest start, according to a draft match schedule seen markmeets.com

The World Cup is being played from November 21 to December 18 when the temperatures in Qatar are not as high as in summer, which will result in a big shake-up of the fixture calendar.

FA move 2023 Cup Final to accommodate Champions League final and Qatar World Cup

The FA have agreed to bring forward the date of the 2023 FA Cup Final so that they can secure the Champions League final at Wembley that year.

UEFA demand control of the stadium for more than a week in the run-up to the Champions League final meaning the FA Cup, that would normally take place the weekend before would have to be moved as the FA would not have control of Wembley.

The draft schedule being considered by the English football authorities has the FA Cup final in 2023 on June 3, the Champions League final on June 10 and the final day of the Premier League on May 28.
