The Premier League games for the upcoming season were released on Wednesday morning, but fans of clubs across the EFL will have to wait another week to find out when and where their teams will be playing.
It’s going to be a busy summer of football, with the euros running until July 11th and the EFL season starting again less than four weeks later.
The Championship, League One and League Two seasons start a week earlier than the Premier League, with the top division starting on August 14th.
When will the schedule for the Championship, League One and League Two 2021/22 seasons be published?
The games will be released on Thursday, June 24th at 9 a.m., eight days after the Premier League games were released.
Keep an eye on the EFL website and club websites for next Thursday morning release.
When do the EFL seasons start?
The season kicks off on Friday, August 6th, with most of the EFL opening games being played on Saturday, August 7th.
The bookies are giving relegating Premier League teams an excellent chance to move straight back up, with Fulham and West Brom being joint favorites moving up 13/8 with Betfair.
Sheffield United is also popular but lies behind Bournemouth in promotion prospects, with Swansea and Barnsley making the championship play-offs behind the Blades last season.
Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland are the favorites to move up from the first division and return to the championship, while Salford City is the cheapest for promotion to the second division.
