#FixtureReleaseDay is now less than 24 hours away – not long to go until the Dons discover their schedule for the 2017/18 campaign!

EFL fixtures for the 2017/18 season are due to be announced this Wednesday at 9am and will see all three divisions of the EFL kick-off over the weekend Friday 4th to Sunday 6th August.

The regular season will continue until the weekend of 5th May 2018, when Sky Bet League One, as well as Sky Bet Championship and Sky Bet League Two, will all come to a close.

The EFL play-off finals will then take place on successive days at Wembley Stadium over a Bank Holiday weekend in May, starting with the Championship play-off final on Saturday 26th, ahead of the season finale for League One on Sunday 27th and League Two on Monday 28th May.

The order of the Play-Offs has been reversed so the Sky Bet Championship play-off final will take place on the Saturday to assist with international call-ups ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Supporters will have plenty of opportunities to watch their team play over the festive period with full fixture programmes on Saturday 23rd December, Boxing Day, Saturday 30th December and Monday 1st January 2018.

Round One of the EFL Cup – which will be known as the Carabao Cup next season - will take place immediately after the season openers, with midweek slots on week commencing Monday 7th August. The Dons discovered their opponents - Forest Green Rovers - last Friday.
