The SPFL has confirmed the Scottish Premiership will shut down for around a month next season in November and December to accommodate the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Clubs will hold 16 rounds of fixtures between 30 July and 13 November, before halting until 17 December - the day before the World Cup final.

The final round of top-flight matches will be on the weekend of 27-28 May 2023, with the Premiership play-off finals on 1 and 4 June. The Scottish Cup final is likely to be on 3 June.

The League Cup final will take place on 26 February, with the semi-finals on 14 and 15 January. This will be a change from recent seasons when the competition was completed in the first half of the season. The group stages will start on 9 and 10 July.

Wonder if they will still try and have the winter shutdown 😂

Depends on the state of hamstrings across the city.

Can always sign another Shark Finiesta if Flange is still there :lol:

Says there will be a round of fixtures on Xmas Eve and Hogmonay as both are Saturdays. What day will the old firm be?  Sunday 1st Jan? Everyone out drinking for (hopefully) the first time in years with no covid restrictions.
