Leicester City Premier League fixtures: Full schedule, dates, times, predictions for the 2022/23 EPL season

After finishing fifth in successive seasons, the 2021/22 Premier League campaign was a somewhat underwhelming one for former champions Leicester City.

A four-game unbeaten run at the end of the season, including three wins, earned the Foxes eighth place — but their points tally of 52 was their lowest since 2018/19, in which Brendan Rodgers took charge with only three months remaining.

Rodgers also guided Leicester to the semifinals of the UEFA Europa Conference League, in which they were beaten by inaugural champions Roma.

With European football out of the equation this time around, here’s what we know about Leicester’s schedule so far.

Leicester City Premier League fixtures 2022/23

Leicester’s 2022/23 fixtures will be released on Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. BST (4 a.m. ET). In addition to the near month-long break for the FIFA World Cup (Nov. 14-Dec. 18), there will be two FIFA international breaks: Sept. 19-27, 2022 and March 20-28, 2023. 

According to a report in The Times, a total of 16 Premier League matchdays will be played before the FIFA World Cup break, and the remaining 22 following the World Cup.

In order to squeeze in 16 Premier League matchdays before the World Cup, there will need to be two midweek slates. A midweek in August (Aug. 31 would make most sense to avoid early season fixture congestion and potential injuries) and another on Oct. 19 are the available slots.

Two midweek dates post-World Cup will also be required given the two weekends dedicated to the FA Cup in January. If the Premier League maintains its three-matchday tradition around the holidays, then Jan. 4 could be one option. The other most likely slot would be either Feb. 8 or May 3 given other competitions and the late March FIFA break. Last season the Premier League played the February midweek, leaving May open for rescheduled matches.

The Sporting News will bring you all the fixtures below as soon as they are released on Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. BST (4 a.m. ET).

Brendan Rodgers - Leicester City - November 2021

Leicester City in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup

One of the low points of Leicester’s 2021/22 campaign was their FA Cup fourth-round hammering at Midlands neighbours Nottingham Forest, and they will have the chance to put that right when they join the competition again in January.

A Carabao Cup defeat to eventual champions Liverpool on penalties in the quarterfinals was more forgivable. That competition starts again in November for Leicester.

Leicester City Premier League projection & odds

Recouping some of the 14-point shortfall on their total the previous season would go a long way to helping Leicester pursue a place in the top six again.

Seventh-placed West Ham finished four points ahead of the Foxes in 2021/22 and all of the teams in the top six are likely to be in a position to strengthen significantly, as well as the newly wealthy Newcastle below them. Qualifying for Europe would be an encouraging sign that progression rather than stagnation is being achieved.

Leicester City best & worst Premier League finish

Anyone familiar with football folklore will enjoy revisiting Leicester’s Premier League title win of 2015/16, which was undoubtedly the greatest upset in the history of the modern top flight.

Leicester had spent 10 of the previous 12 seasons outside the Premier League, finishing bottom — their worst ever finish — in 2001/02 and third-bottom in 2003/04.

It took Leicester until 2013/14 to regain their place in the Premier League, where they have remained ever since.
