Updated: Jul 1, 2022
Recently, the five major European leagues have announced the time of the 22-23 season. Different from previous years, there is an extra interval for the World Cup.

World Cup 2022 is the first time the World Cup will start in November due to the hot climate in the host country Qatar.
The World Cup schedule has also affected the timing of other cup matches. Some players protested to the top that they were exhausted by the game, and the entire professional football circle complained a lot.
Comparison table of the 22-23 season of the five major European leagues and the 2022 World Cup schedule
The Winter 2022 World Cup schedule overlaps with five major leagues
Since the 22-23 season schedule of the five major leagues overlap with the 2022 World Football Championship, the national football federations require leagues to establish an interval period for the World Football Championship so that players can prepare for the World Football Championship involving national interests.
But from the above table, we can see that the players are almost running from both ends. As soon as the league enters the interval period, they will rush to Qatar to participate in the national team training camp. There is no rest time at all. What is even more worrying is that in the league Injury will not be able to get proper time to recover, or even miss the World Cup if the injury is serious, it will be a big blow to both the player himself and the national team as a whole, which is a pity.
In the past, the World Cup was set to start in June and July, while the five major leagues mostly ended in May. After the league ended, there would be a good period for these players to rest and relax. This year's 2022 World Cup will be held again. Reflect on the problem of player overwork. The five major leagues are not only players from the host country of the league, but many strong players of the national team play for clubs in the league. For example, in South American countries such as Brazil and Argentina, many players play for clubs such as Serie A, Ligue 1, La Liga, etc. It is no small matter that the schedule overlaps with the World Cup.
Too many football events cause players to be overworked, but it is difficult to solve
The Premier League (English Premier League) is the only league that does not have a winter break and is recognized as an overworked league. Many people think that there is no winter break, but the Christmas and New Year Express of the Premier League have caused a major problem in the stamina of English players. It is one of the reasons why he has not won the World Cup for many years.
But such a Premier League this year has moved to the Christmas and New Year Express schedule for the first time at the request of the English Football Association, which shows their determination to win the World Football Championship.
Of course, the phenomenon of overworked football players is still unresolved. There are many competitions today, and the World Football Championship is different from previous years, which makes all professional players miserable. , there is simply no time for the body to recover properly, and if it goes on like this, it may be exhausted." However, there is still no trend of improvement in the competition.
Although the fans are very satisfied watching the game because of the full schedule, the football lottery hits a new high every year, and the organizers of the competitions at all levels make a lot of money, but such an environment sacrifices the physical condition of the players. Some people believe that, just as the Italian national team was injured and unable to perform at all in the previous World Cup preliminaries, it would not be surprising if the 2022 FIFA World Cup saw traditional European teams fail to perform well.
