The first former Premier League Champions to fall into the third tier are Southend United’s opening day opponents for the new League One season.
Blackburn Rovers come to Roots Hall on 5th August.
Other matches to look out for include a Boxing Day battle with Charlton – while old rivals Gillingham are the opponents at the end of August and on Easter Monday.
Elsewhere Colchester United will travel to Accrington Stanley in League Two on the same day – and face newcomers Forest Green Rovers before the end of the month.
Christmas sees matches with Crawley, Chesterfield and Cambridge – and Easter sees a home clash with Luton and the return with Forest Green.
At the business end of the campaign – Southend host Bristol Rovers on the final day – Colchester complete their fixtures at Exeter.
