12 May 2019

MK Dons will discover their Sky Bet League One fixtures for the 2018/18 campaign on Thursday 20 June.

Set for a 9am announcement, the fixture release day represents a date to mark in the diary for Dons supporters who can then start to plan their journeys up and down the country.

The first weekend of August is to host the opening round of Sky Bet League One fixtures, with 3 August the date set for the first set of traditional Saturday games in the EFL, whilst Round One of the Carabao Cup is to take place week commencing 12 August.

Wembley will play host to the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday 1 March 2020, in what will be the first of five Finals in the EFL calendar, whilst the EFL Trophy Final, which attracted a record crowd of 85,021 in this year’s showpiece between Portsmouth and Sunderland, is to take place the following month on Sunday 5 April.

The season-ending Sky Bet EFL Play-Offs will once again be staged at Wembley Stadium, this time across two weekends in May. The League Two Final will start proceedings on Saturday 16 May, before League One and the Championship take centre stage the following weekend on Sunday 24 May and Monday 25 May, respectively.

The scheduling of the respective Play-Off Finals is due to a busy period in the football calendar, with Wembley Stadium also hosting fixtures at Euro 2020, including the Semi-Finals and Final.
