The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) and the Portuguese Professional Football League (LPFP) today agreed on the official calendar for the next season, which, as traditionally, will start with the dispute of the Cândido de Oliveira Super Cup, a competition that will oppose the champion national championship to the winner of the Portuguese Cup, FC Porto or Tondela, on 31 July.
For the following weekend, August 7, the first rounds of leagues I and II are scheduled, which will end, 34 rounds later, on May 28.
The two professional events, it should be noted, will be interrupted between the period of November 13 and December 27, due to the dispute of the 2022 World Cup. This means that the preparation period of the National Team before the competition to be played in Qatar will be 11 days (Portugal will face Ghana, on November 24).
The final of the 83rd edition of the Portuguese Cup is scheduled for June 4th, after the end of the championships, at a time when the access and maintenance ‘play-offs’ in the two main levels, which have games scheduled for 3, 7 or 8 and 11 of June. In this way, the season will be almost a year long: beginning on July 31, 2022 and ending on June 11, 2023.
The ‘queen’ competition of Portuguese football will feature clubs from the Sabseg League from October 1st, the date scheduled for the second round, while those from the Bwin League enter on October 15th and 16th, with the third round.
