Norwich City will begin their 2018/19 Championship campaign away at Birmingham City, it has been revealed this morning as the new season's fixtures are released in full.

An opening-day trip to St Andrew's on Saturday, August 4 awaits for Daniel Farke's team, ahead of a first home game of the campaign against West Brom the following Saturday, who have just dropped out of the Premier League after eight seasons in the top flight.

A trip to Sheffield United is followed by Carrow Road clashes with Alex Neil's Preston and then Leeds, in a tough looking opening month.

The first East Anglian Derby fixture of the campaign arrives on September 1 at Portman Road, with the return fixture at Carrow Road on February 9.

The festive period is favourable for Canaries fans, with a trip to Blackburn a few days before Christmas followed by two home games, against Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day and Derby County on December 29. A trip to west London follows on New Year's Day when City head to Brentford.
