Folks wanted to make us believe the full Premier League schedule had been leaked before the official release, but we have to worry about that no more, folks. Here it is in full, per your very own NUFC blue-checked, verified, legit-as-hell account:
Our 2022/23 schedule!— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) June 16, 2022
With the Premier League season starting earlier than ever thanks to the Winter World Cup to be held in Qatar throughout the months of November and December, the ball will get rolling at St James’ Park from the get-go on August 6.
The Magpies will open the 2023 season against recently-promoted Nott Forest at home! Can’t get much better for a start if you ask me. Not bragging, of course, but you know what I’m saying.
Newcastle will do good snatching those three points to kick the year off and also the three up-next in the fixture list against Brighton & Hove Albion away because a pretty scaring three-game span will follow the first two games: Manchester City at St James’ Park, and then back-to-back away games at Liverpool and Wolverhampton in just four days. Uh, oh.
Highlighting a bunch of interesting pieces of the schedule, the Toon will also have a hard spell in late October and early November facing Tottenham, Aston Villa, Southampton, and Chelsea before everybody packs their bags for Qatar. The end of the year will also be—we assume—one with very high stakes in place as Arsenal and Leicester City will visit St. James Park while the Magpies will close their season on May 28 against title-contender Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Here’s hoping for that European football qualification, because Newcastle United!
