How is the fixture list checked?

Fixtures compiler Glenn Thompson told Premier League back in 2018: “Traditionally the Premier League, the EFL and Atos representatives will review the fixtures for two days, looking at every date in the season to make sure that wherever possible we have met everything we have been asked to.
“The computer is very useful during the review because if we do not want a certain fixture on a particular date, it will give us alternate dates for that fixture to be moved to. It can be that changing one match may require 40 other changes.
“We also have a working party meeting with representatives from all the leagues, the FA and also a fans representative, from the Football Supporters' Federation.
“They will have had an introductory meeting in March before the fixtures are produced and then just before the fixtures are released they will meet again to go through key dates of the fixture list, such as opening day and the Christmas schedule, and provide a check that all the requirements we have considered have been adequately dealt with.”
He added: “You can't satisfy everyone. It's a compromise across all clubs; you can't do anything to favour any one club.”
