The future of the English Premier League and Scottish Premiership is set to be determined this year with the new seasons slate of fixtures being decided.
The top four clubs in the Premiership will play their first matches of the new season on September 4 and the rest of the season on the 18th.
The new seasons schedule will also see the return of the Football League on October 1st with a total of 20 fixtures and four away games.
The Football League has not made any official announcements, however the new year will mark the debut of the top two sides in the division – Queens Park Rangers and Huddersfield Town – with the other two sides relegated to the Championship.
The return of Queens Park will be the most notable result as the club has played three games in the Championship since last season.
Huddersfields have played in the Premier League since 2013, winning the Championship in 2015.
However, the club’s first-team status is yet to be decided as the Championship will be used for the season’s other teams.
The club will have a total number of 14 players in the squad this season and will feature a number of key players including Danny Ward, Sam Allardyce, Joe Ledley, Lee Grant, Craig Bryson and Jonathan Woodgate.
Other key players to feature in the first team are Tom Cleverley, Michael Keane, Sam Vokes, Connor Wickham, Jonny Evans, Scott Sinclair and Danny Swanson.
Other top performers to feature this season include Alex McCarthy, Kyle Bartley, Adam Lallana, Ryan Bertrand and Jack Colback.
The Championship season will be played over a 24-game season and all 16 clubs will play 12 matches, which is a reduction from the current 15 matches per season.
The league is expected to finish in mid-February, which means the first home game of the year will be in April, with the league final taking place in August.
