The Durand Cup committee announced a change in the fixtures of its 131st edition of the tournament by shifting the Kolkata derby to August 28. The match was originally scheduled to start the tournament on August 16, which now will have Mohammedan Sporting taking on FC Goa in a group-A contest on the same day. ATK Mohun Bagan will meet Emami East Bengal on August 28 in the rescheduled fixtures.

This change apparently happened because of a request from East Bengal, which is yet to start its pre-season training.

Below is the full fixtures list of the Durand Cup 2022 group stages.
