Once the previous season is completely over and teams have been relegated, the schedule makers are able to get started. Taking into account international events – such as friendly and World Cup qualifiers – the EPL works around everything to the best of their abilities to create the ideal schedule to maximize the league’s exposure and revenue. By the middle of June – roughly two month before the start of the season – the final schedule is released.
The EPL’s season is intermittently interrupted by international soccer competitions and tournament qualifications. This means that some weeks and weekends there will be zero games scheduled. To offset these interruptions in the schedule, the English Premier League teams have a few weeks during the season where they play two games – often a Tuesday/Wednesday game followed by a Saturday match. As many teams are accustomed to playing UEFA Champions League or Europa League games on weeknights during the season, it does not have an overwhelming effect on the team or quality of soccer.
