When does LaLiga 2022/23 start?

The league in Spain starts Friday, August 12, 2022 (the first day is distributed between August 12, 13 and 14) and will end on June 4, 2023. In total, this new season will have 38 days in which 20 clubs that are in the first division will face each other, in a total of 380 football matches.

2022/23 calendar draw

On June 23, the Royal Spanish Football Federation held the draw for the LaLiga season 2022/23 calendar, at the Ciudad del Fútbol in Madrid.

Currently, the LaLiga draw is computerized, unlike years ago when it was a manual process. There are four drums that automatically draw a number and from these the software makes the match schedule. Since the 2018/19 season, an asymmetric type of calendar has been used in order not to repeat the first leg matches in the second round. In this way, the competition is given more emotion and games that could seem “repeated” to the fans are not played.
