English League One and Two to continue through 2022 World Cup

The English Football League will continue League One and Two during the 2022 World Cup - but the Championship will be paused mid-season.

The tournament is traditionally held during the summer but will be switched to a first-ever winter World Cup next year in Qatar.

The showpiece will be staged between November 21 and December 18.

The English Football League has now confirmed that it has adjusted its schedule to accommodate it.

There will be a break in Championship matches planned from November 13 to December 9.

That period includes the World Cup group stage as well as the opening round of knockout games.

The EFL has also announced that the fourth round of the Carabao Cup would be scheduled for the week between the World Cup final and the Premier League's Boxing Day restart.
