National League outright title winner odds revealed for 2022/23

The National League outright title winner odds have been revealed for the 2022/23 season now that the playoffs have been completed.

The division’s 24 teams are now confirmed following Grimsby Town’s 2-1 playoff final win after extra time over Solihull Moors at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Oldham Athletic and Scunthorpe United drop into non league having been relegated from League Two, while they will also face National League North promoted sides Gateshead and York City and National League South champions Maidstone United and playoff winners Dorking Wanderers.

Oldham Athletic is the first former Premier League club to be relegated to the National League, and their matches against Notts County will be the third fixture to be played in all five top tiers of English football.

The 2022–23 National League season, known as the Vanarama National League for sponsorship reasons, will be the eighth season under English football’s new title of the National League, the twentieth season consisting of three divisions, and the forty-fourth season overall.

This season sees the expansion of North and South divisions to 24 teams apiece, a planned increase which was originally scheduled in 2019 to occur ahead of the 2021–22 campaign. However, after the curtailment and voidance of the 2020–21 season for both North and South, promotion and relegation were postponed. For those reasons, the implementation of expansion plans was delayed until 2022–23.

Relegation places for the National League go back to four from three.

The National League has said that the season will get underway on Saturday, August 6th, which is two weeks earlier than in 2021/2022.

The final day of the new campaign will be on Saturday, April 29th.

There is no official date for when the fixtures will be announced yet but it is usually the first week of July.

Unlike the Premier League and Championship, there are no plans for matches to be halted because of the World Cup, though the National League will make decisions on a case-by-case basis regarding any possible disruption.

The World Cup in Qatar begins on the 21st of November, with the final taking place on December 18th. The EFL season starts earlier than normal on the 30th of July. There will be a pause in games in the Championship from the 12th of November before resuming on the 10th of December, once the World Cup group stages is complete. League One and League Two will continue as normal.

The Premier League gets underway on the same date as the National League, but fixtures will be stopped after the weekend of November 12-13 and will restart on Boxing Day.

Right then, time to take a look at the National League outright title winner and promotion odds as they are revealed for 2022/23…

@Bristoliang1en: Great to see @YorkCityFC going in the right direction again. The National League is fast becoming an extension to the EFL.

@ethansgrumps: That’s one tough division to get out of in the right direction!

@stu_cocker: Reality just hit home 🤦‍♂️ Lets hope york away is either summer, Christmas or end of season….. not a Tuesday night in january!!!

@LewisBr42295907: Can’t wait till dorking wanderers beat us 4-0 at home #iron

@MusicMagpie1: Hope we have Barnet first game again #ncfc

@whiteside92: I can’t see fylde ? Oh it’s 2022 they must be in league football

@coddy60: Glad to be out of that amateur run league. UTM

@dazwesty7: 14 ex league clubs wow tough

@mcgparker: Naturally bias, but knowing how hard some of those places are to go, Scunny could well be in trouble again next year

@tmbroadley: Wrexham and Notts to go up.

@mills_thesir: There’s going to be a lot of piss boiled next year #oafc

@samf765: Realistically there’s between 7 and 9 clubs who should be looking to go up. Criminal there’s only 2 places. It’s a football league 3 now

@GeorgeJ199: No reason why Notts can’t get promoted next season

@ryangriffin89: Has the @TheVanaramaNL ever looked scarier than this? 😬😳

@CharlieWK1866: Atleast we’ve lost Dover and Weymouth thank Christ

@Luke_JSUFC: Proper footy this. Never fancied EFL football

@sgodfrey: It really is League 3…

@LiddellConor_: The depth of football in England is mad. Some big teams in the FIFTH division there.

@pfcmichael: Such a class league 😍

@joerob_96: Some seriously dire away days in store 😂 only one I’m looking forward to is Wrexham #oafc

@luketaylorBAFC: Some big clubs stuck down there and people still call the way burton is ran 🤦‍♂️

@capsnbovril: Now we’re officially the shittest team in Lincolnshire, let’s go have a blast! #utfi

@sambingham2708: Gonna be some ride next season following the blues up and down the country. Let’s have it. Non league tour extended by a further year! #spireites

@jtb150295: Look at some of these badges! Next season is going to be a journey both metaphorically and literally! We will finish embarrassingly lower than many of these clubs though with no change! No club is too big to go down, history means nothing! #SwannOut

@Upthedags: This is screaming Dagenham 1st

@adam1862_: Oldham and Scunthorpe could genuinely go down again. Can’t see how they can compete in their current situations. Both are awful.

@NottsCountyZone: Absolutely no excuse to finish in anything other than the top 2.

@AM_OAFC: Fold. #oafc
