The final date of the 2022/23 season Champions League has been set for June 10, 2023.
French publication L’Équipe via GFN reports that the move has been necessitated by the changes to the football calendar caused by the 2022 World Cup.
With the tournament taking place from November 21 to December 18, the European and domestic football authorities will need to make arrangements, with the Champions League group stage now set to begin one week earlier than usual, on September 6.
The changes will see the Europa League final played on May 31, while the Conference League final has been pushed to June 7.
The move will force the Ligue 1 authorities to revamp their 2022/23 season with players set to be released from their clubs one week before the World Cup begins.
This would mean that they would have less time to rest after the World Cup but the changes in the calendar would see them handed the normal two weeks rest after the summer tournament with the other option being a one-week rest.
