    Teams have already begun mapping out their plans for the coming season and reviewing their outings in the 2023-2024 Premier League season, wondering where things could have gone wrong.

    According to the Premier League, there will be more rest time handed to teams over three of the festive match rounds, with no club playing within 60 hours of another match.

    Maresca’s future remains in doubt, with reports indicating he could be moving to Chelsea in the coming days.

    Ipswich Town, who are tutored by Kiera McKenna, are also back in the Premier League after being absent for 22 years.

    McKenna has also been linked with Brighton, Manchester United, and Chelsea, although it is expected that he remains at the helm of Ipswich, as the club are about to offer him a bumper salary package.

    Southampton were the final team to secure their ticket to the top division, as they had to do so by defeating Leeds United 0-1 in the Championship play-off final.

    Sheffield United, Burnley, and Luton are the teams that have fallen back down to the Championship, having all gained promotion to the Premier League in the 2022/23 season.

    Based on the recently altered FIFA men’s international match calendar, international breaks are slated for September 1-9, October 6-14, and November 10-18, 2024 for England’s fresh Nations League campaign.

    There will also be another international break that will be on from March 23, 2025, March 31, 2025, as nations get their 2026 World Cup qualification battles underway.
