With the 2022/23 Bundesliga season set to kick off on 5 August, and the Bundesliga 2 campaign getting underway three weeks earlier, the fixture list for the respective new seasons will be released this coming 17 June.

An important factor had to be taken into account when putting together the 2022/23 scheduling framework: that of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar taking place from 21 November to 18 December 2022. This will result in a two-month winter break at domestic level. The last matchdays prior to that break - matchday 15 for the Bundesliga and matchday 17 for Bundesliga 2 - will thus take place on the weekend of 11 - 13 November. Following the World Cup and the subsequent winter break, the Bundesliga will resume on 20 Januar, 2023 with Bundesliga 2 recommencing 27 January.

The 34th and final match day of the 2022/23 Bundesliga season is scheduled for Saturday, May 27 2023. A day later, on May 28 2023, the 34th matchday of Bundesliga 2 will take place.
