There is already information about when the next season in the Bundesliga, i.e. the 2023/24 season, will start. SPOX shows you the most important dates.
The current Bundesliga season is about to end, on the 34th and final day of the game FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are fighting for the championship trophy. At the other end of the table it will be decided who, alongside Hertha BSC, will definitely have to be relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga.
But there is already information about when the 2023/24 season will start. Below there are at SPOX the answer to that.
Bundesliga: When does the 2023/24 season start
The 2023/24 Bundesliga season will start on August 18, 2023, with the first round of play extending until August 20, 2023. This was announced by the German Football Association (DFB) after a presidium meeting in Frankfurt/Main and the passing of the general appointment calendar for 2023/24.
Since next year there will be no World Cup in winter, there will be a “normal” winter break again next season. This will start on December 19th and 20th, 2023 – after the 16th Bundesliga and 17th second division matchday. The season in the football upper house will continue on January 12, 2024. The 61st Bundesliga season is then to end on May 18, 2024 with the 34th matchday, during which all 18 teams will be in action at the same time as usual.
The 2. Bundesliga will open even earlier than the Bundesliga – on July 28th. The second division teams return from the winter break on January 12, 2024 and conclude the season on May 19, 2024.
The start of the DFB Cup has already been scheduled. The first main round will take place on the weekend of August 11-14, 2023. Round two will take place on October 31 and November 1, 2023, the round of 16 on December 5 and 6, the quarterfinals on January 30 and 31, 2024 and on February 6 and 7, 2024. The round of the last four goes on on April 2nd and 3rd, 2024, before the cup final is held in the Berlin Olympic Stadium on May 25th.
The DFL Supercup, in which the champions and cup winners or runners-up from the 2022/23 season compete against each other, is to be played on August 12, 2023. As in the current season, the two Supercup participants will make up for their first round games later, as the Supercup game is scheduled for the same day as the first round of the DFB Cup.
