Seven week break planned for Premier League

This time next year, the Premier League will again be in full swing but we will also have the Qatar World Cup on the horizon, due to start in November 2022. 

The Premier League has proposed that next season's campaign would stop after the weekend of November 12 before fixtures resumed again on 26 December, while the season would start a week earlier and end a week later. 

Both the FA Cup and UCL final will be moved to June - all to accommodate this frankly stupid winter World Cup.

Still... It's Coming Home.
