Premier League scrap fixture tradition at Christmas off the back of knackering World Cup

Premier League is reportedly set to announce they will scrap the traditional Christmas calendar fixtures between Boxing Day and the New Year following the World Cup.A staple mark of the top-flight season, fixtures held on December 28th have been scrapped to avoid players being rundown after a hectic schedule of international football. For the first time in Premier League history, there will be a six-week gap in the fixture list during November and December to accommodate the Qatari World Cup.According to The Telegraph, when the fixtures are released on Thursday morning (June 16th) there is expected to be one less Christmas game than usual.The report states the festive calendar will only include matches on Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, and January 2nd with no games to be held on December 28th.The change has been brought forward to due concerns over player burnout as the Boxing Day clashes occur just eight days after the final in Doha.The EFL are also anticipated to announce similar changes to the Christmas pile-up.
