The EFL has confirmed that the fixture schedule will be released on Friday, August 21 at 9am.

That will give clubs three weeks to prepare for their opening league matches.

With the season set to finish on the weekend of May 8 2021, there will be a condensed fixture list for the campaign.

It means an increase in midweek matches for clubs as the fixtures are squeezed into a shorter period than usual.

Due to international breaks, the Championship will contain 13 midweek matches, with League One and League Two holding 11.

The 2020/21 season dates across the Sky Bet EFL, Carabao Cup and the EFL Trophy have been confirmed, with the Carabao Cup officially kicking off the EFL season with an action-packed month of cup football to follow throughout September.

Carabao Cup

The 2020/21 competition has seen a number of significant scheduling changes with two legged semi-finals being replaced by a single tie and the first four rounds scheduled to take place on consecutive weeks, kicking off in early September.


Round One fixtures are scheduled to take place on Saturday 5 September, but due to the international window may be played on alternative dates. Rounds Two, Three and Four will be played on consecutive midweeks dates starting 15/16 September.

Premier League sides will enter the competition in Round Two or Round Three if they are competing in European competition in season 2020/21.

The Draw for the Round One will take place on Sky Sports News on Tuesday 18 August 2020, time TBC.

As per the previous two seasons, the Round One draw will be divided into a northern and southern section but will remain unseeded.

never happen unfortunately although it would make sense to shorten the european competitions to a knockout format for the coming season and limit the travelling to and from countries with a high r rate.

International games are going to have to be looked into as that nations league that totally pointless starts soon and there is no way clubs are going to allow their players to leave their bubble to potentially catch the virus and bring it back on international duty.

they should be binned off regardless. give the teams in non league up to league 1 the bigger gate receipt for games they draw big teams regardless if they are at home or away that should cover any loss in potential revenues replays would bring in for them.
