Notes

More England matches have been played in May than any other month, 201 of the 972 played by the middle of the 2017-18 international seasonJune ranked second with 166 matches. England have played only six matches in January.

However, up until the close of football following the outbreak of The Great War, after 119 matches, England had only played 59 times in March, and 25 times each in February and April.

The popularity of an early summer game was beginning to show before the outbreak of WWII. After 226 games, although March was still the most popular with 68, April, with 43, and May's 38 games were quickly closing the gap. Generally thanks to the routine of an end-of-season tour.

It was in the European tour of May 1951, that the 49 games in May finally overtook the 48 games in April, although still a way behind those 68 games held in March.

In fact, it was in the lead-up to the 1958 World Cup Finals that games held in the month of May became more popular than those in March.  It was in the European Nations Quarter Finals in 1968 that the one-hundred mark was reached for matches played in the month of May.  The month of June followed when it hit the hundred mark during Euro 1996.  March followed in 2008 and October in 2009.

More matches have been staged on the 15th and the 17th of the month than any other dates, 44. The fewest have been held on the 31st, with thirteen, and the 30th, with sixteen.

More matches, sixteen, have been played on 24 May than on any other date. The second most popular date, with twelve matches, is 17 May, followed by 18th May, 21st and 22nd of May, 6th, 12th and 15th of June, 17th October and 16th November, each with ten.  March and May are the only months which have had a match played on every day.

It was not until the 1981-82 season that England finally played on every day of the week in one single season. Playing their usual season games on a Wednesday, unusually reverting to a Tuesday for the rest of the qualification matches. The Home International Championship brought the usual Saturday match. But the tour of Scandinavia and the World Cup Finals in 1982 in Spain meant England played a match on each of the other four days of the week.

March was the first month to have a match played on every one of its dates when it completed so in 1981, followed by May, who achieved the totality in 1985.

After 780 matches, August held its first match in 2001.
