Change to European Schedule

What do you think of the transition to Fall/Spring football that the RFU is enacting? I think it is a good idea, as it keeps the teams more fit for the second half of the Champions League and Europa League.

Do you know the months when the season will begin and end?

I had assumed it would be the 11 months from July until May (inclusive), with a 2-month break taken from mid-December until mid-February, giving a 9-month season. Is that correct?

I haven't seen an exact schedule, but news sites mention "a long winter break", so your schedule looks about right.

I think it will help players as most Russian players become tired during winter in CL as it is end of Russian league. Therefore thumbs up from me
