It’s official! The Bundesliga has released their 2022-23 fixture list. Title holders Bayern Munich will herald the 60th season of the German top flight with a road trip to Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt on August 5.

Of course, the Rekordmeister will already have one match under their belt — the July 30th defense of the DFL-Supercup versus RB Leipzig.

This year’s schedule is notable for an extended mid-season ‘break’ caused by the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with the Hinrunde coming to a close on November 13 after only fifteen Matchdays, and the Rückrunde not kicking off until January 20 with Matchday 16. This also means the season will not conclude until May 27.

It’ll be a different pace for teams as well as fans, with the interlude presenting a hectic fixture list of its own as well as creating extra fixture congestion before and after.

A notable two-week stretch from Matchdays 8 through 10 looms with home tilts against Leverkusen and Freiburg bookending a road trip to Dortmund. Bayern’s season resumes in January away to Leipzig and concludes in Köln. The 11th title is expected to be confirmed in early April with the return leg of Der Klassiker (hubris, strike us not down, ‘tis but a joke!)

In 2022-23 the Bundesliga welcomes back Schalke 04 and Werder Bremen. And if you’re looking for Arminia Bielefeld or Greuther Fürth, you’ll have to check the Bundesliga 2 fixture list this year.
