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.

City will get an early chance to maintain their derby dominance over Ipswich Town, under new manager Paul Hurst, when they are scheduled to visit Portman Road on September 1. The return in Norfolk is February 9.

Norwich have two Christmas home fixtures, with Nottingham Forest due at Carrow Road on Boxing Day and Derby County three days later, before a New Year's Day trip to Brentford.

Check out the key dates below.
