The Football League has confirmed that next season will kick-off on August 3. The decision to start earlier was taken by the Clubs as it delivers an extra Saturday match. Hope this doesn’t affect your holiday plans.
Christmas will include a full set of Sunday games, which will give players an extra day’s rest from the Boxing Day games.
Saturday, December 21
Sunday, December 29,
Boxing Day (Thursday 26th) and
New Year’s day (Wednesday 1st).
The last fixtures will be on Saturday 3rd May. Then the play offs will be held at Wembley on the weekend of May 24th to 26th (late May back holiday).
