Brighton & Hove Albion will find out who they face on the opening day of the new season when the 2016/17 EFL fixtures are released next Wednesday, 22nd June, at 9am.
Albion will be hoping for another winning start, following a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest last year.
The Boxing Day, New Year and final day of the season fixtures will also be among the first fixtures that fans look out for.
But the 22nd June is only the first key date to look out for, as Chris Hughton and his squad begin their preparations for the new campaign.
Following a week on a private overseas training camp, the Seagulls begin their pre-season schedule with a match against fellow Sussex side, Crawley Town, on Saturday 16th July.
Championship opposition follows with a match against Fulham, at Aldershot, on Tuesday 19th July and a double header with Luton Town and Stevenage the following Saturday, 23rd July.
The last confirmed pre-season match is away at newly promoted League One side Oxford United, on Tuesday 26th July, but Albion fans are reminded that a home fixture at the Amex will take place on the weekend 29th-31st July, with the opposition to be announced in due course.
The new season then kicks off on the weekend of Saturday 6th August.
