In the wake of another summer of jaw-dropping spending, Premier League clubs are gearing up for the 2023/24 season. While the 2023 summer transfer window saw unprecedented investments, there's still business to attend to. This article delves into Premier League Squad Submission Deadline for 2023/24 Season.

The Premier League, known for its financial prowess, did not disappoint in the 2023 summer transfer window. With cash to burn, English clubs collectively splurged an astounding £2.44 billion, surpassing the previous year's expenditure of £1.92 billion. This extravagant spending spree showcases the financial dominance of the league.

While European clubs are grappling with the aftermath of the pandemic, Premier League teams seem unfazed. However, the looming 7th September deadline in the Saudi Pro League could disrupt the tranquility. The question arises: How will this impact the Premier League squads as they prepare for the upcoming season?

Submission Date for Premier League Squads

The clock is ticking for Premier League clubs as they must finalize their squads for the 2023/24 season. The submission date is fast approaching: Wednesday, 13th September. Clubs must submit their squads by 14:00 BST on this date. Let's delve into the key requirements and challenges they face.

To maintain the integrity of the league, certain squad composition requirements must be met. Notably, no more than 17 non-'homegrown' players can be included in the squad. This rule stipulates that eight players in the squad must have played for an English club for at least three years before turning 21, regardless of their nationality.

An interesting example is David Raya, who, despite hailing from Spain, qualifies as 'homegrown' because he joined Blackburn Rovers at the age of 16 and has since played in England.

Premier League clubs also have the flexibility to include under-21 players in a separate list, freeing up space for senior players in the 25-man squad. However, to be eligible for the under-21 category in the current campaign, players must have been born before 1st January 2002.
