When are the English Football League fixtures announced for the 2023/24 season? All about key dates | Soccer News

Fixtures for the 2023/24 English Football League season will be announced this Thursday with Leeds, Leicester and Southampton entering the Championship.

Premier League fixtures were announced last week but EFL clubs have had to wait another week to see their full fixture lists confirmed for the 2023/24 campaign.

Leicester, Leeds and Southampton will be aiming for an immediate return to the top flight, while Coventry are hoping to respond positively after their play-off final loss to Luton.

They will be joined by promoted clubs Plymouth Argyle, Ipswich Town and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

In Sky Bet League One, fans of newcomers Leyton Orient, Stevenage, Northampton Town and Carlisle United will all be keeping their eyes peeled as Wrexham and Notts County are set to play League Two football this coming term.

Sky Sports brings you everything you need to know about key dates for upcoming dating announcements.
