When is the Championship fixtures 2017/18 release date?
Football fans are getting very excited today over the release of the Premier League fixtures for the 2017/18 season, but where are the fixtures for the Championship and rest of the Football League?
Fans of sides lower down the English football ladder will have to wait a little longer to know when and where they will see their team next season.
The fixtures for the Championship, League One and League Two will all be released on Wednesday June 21 at 9am – a week later than the Premier League.
It’s not entirely clear why the Football League fixtures are announced later than the Premier League as games in the lower divisions will begin on the weekend of August 5 this year, whilst the Premier League kicks off the following weekend of August 12.
Sky Sports will announce which games they are showing live when the fixtures are announced on June 21.
