The EFL have now confirmed that the 2020/21 Season will get underway across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two on the weekend of 12 September.
This season start date confirmation also follows the recent announcement of the 2020 Transfer window dates earlier this month.

There is also an agreement in place with the Premier League for an extended two-week domestic only window which will close at 5pm on Friday 16 October.
The 2020/21 season will conclude on the 8 and 9 May 2021, with the Sky Bet Play-Off Finals reverting back to the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May.
Work is currently underway in respect of fixture scheduling and details will be announced in due course as to when full fixture lists for 2020/21 will be made available.
