Norwich City will travel to Birmingham City on the opening weekend of the Championship season - and there is an early East Anglian derby tussle to look forward to.

Daniel Farke’s squad begin and finish their league campaign in the Midlands, with a trip to St Andrews on Saturday August 4 and a final day visit to the Blues’ rivals, Aston Villa, on Sunday May 5.
