Key Dates for Season 2023/24

The SPFL has confirmed some key dates for next season, which is scheduled to start one week later than the current campaign.

The cinch Premiership, cinch Championship, cinch League 1 and cinch League 2 will all kick off on the weekend of August 5/6. 

Clubs in the cinch Championship, cinch League 1 and cinch League 2 will conclude their fixtures on the first weekend in May before the play-offs get under way.

The group stage of the Viaplay Cup will begin in mid-July and the final will return to a pre-Christmas slot, having been delayed until February this season due to the winter World Cup.

SPFL Trust Trophy dates will be confirmed in due course while fixtures for the 2023/24 League Season will be published towards the end of June.
