Vienna – Thursday, June 23, 2022, 6:01 p.m

As part of the club conference and the subsequent general meeting of the Admiral Bundesliga, some essential organizational points were set for the coming season and beyond.

At the request of TV partner Sky, adjustments to the existing kick-off times were decided for the next four seasons. In the summer months from the beginning of the season to the beginning of September, a new game time will be created on Saturday evening.

As before, there will be three games per round on Saturday, two at 5:00 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. From September, all three games will take place on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. as before. In connection with this, the game plan for the first six rounds of the 2022/23 season will change.

Among other things, the duel WAC against Sturm Graz in the first Bundesliga round will not take place until 7:30 p.m. All other changes can be found here >>>

Friday matches in the qualifying group

Also new this season are Friday games in the qualifying group. From March 2023, one game per round will be played on Friday at 7:30 p.m., with the other two games in the qualifying group still being played on Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

These individual games will take place in the first eight weekend rounds of the finals – the last two rounds will continue to be played at the same time for reasons of competitive security.

Away goals rule is abolished

In addition, the away goals rule for the European Cup playoff and the relegation will be abolished, the possibility of five changes per game will remain. In connection with Corona, clubs can still request a game postponement if fewer than 14 field players and two goalkeepers are available.

The suspension of the so-called “state regulation” for the appointment of referees will also be retained. This means that it is still possible for local referee teams to cast matches. And the maximum price for guest tickets will be reduced from 20 euros to 18 euros.
