Fleetwood Town's 2021/22 League One fixtures announced
Fleetwood Town's fixtures for the upcoming 2021/22 League One season have been announced, with a tough start for the Cod Army.
Town open their campaign by hosting Portsmouth on August 7, before travelling to beaten play-off finalists Lincoln City with another away game following shortly after, at newly relegated Sheffield Wednesday on the Tuesday night.
League Two champions Cheltenham Town are up next, with Plymouth Argyle rounding off the first month of the new campaign - although two Carabao Cup clashes will also be played in August.
The Carabao Cup draw will be made later today at 3:40pm.
The festive schedule has been relatively kind to the travelling Cod Army faithful, an away trip to Morecambe a week before Christmas day kicking it off.
Town host Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day, with a short trip to Wigan Athletic on December 29 followed by opening up the new year at the Stadium of Light, with an away clash with Sunderland.
Fleetwood close out their season with three home games in their final five.
Accrington Stanley will be welcomed to Highbury, as will Oxford United one week later on April 15, Good Friday.
Gillingham will host the Cod Army on Easter Monday before AFC Wimbledon make the long journey to the Fylde coast.
Town's season is set to finish against Bolton Wanderers, away from home, on April 30.
