At the Premier League's Annual General Meeting (AGM) the change from the 2021/22 season to the 2022/23 season has been announced. The AGM was held this week and the official switch between seasons was confirmed. The 2022/23 campaign is now underway.
The three clubs who were relegated - Burnley, Watford and Norwich City - transferred back the share certificates that gave them Premier League status and the Premier League board of directors confirmed the cancellation of these shares. A new share certificate for each of the promoted clubs was then signed by the Premier League directors and company secretary. As required under company law, the three clubs have been entered into the share register.
As a result, the confirmation of the three promoted clubs as members of the Premier League has taken place, with the League formally welcoming them by awarding them their framed share certificates. Following their respective promotions from the EFL Championship, AFC Bournemouth, Fulham and Nottingham Forest can now officially state that they are part of the Premier League. To mark the changing over to the new season, the Premier League website and app has also been refreshed. The Premier League table has been reset with the 20 clubs sorted in alphabetical order, while the Premier League's social media accounts now follow those of the three promoted clubs.
