A Week To Go For EFL Fixtures - 2017/18

Well, until the television companies get their hands on the fixture lists at any rate.

All 72 EFL sides will find out their fixtures for the coming year on Wednesday June 21 at 9am.

Other known key dates so far for the year are:

Sky Bet EFL fixtures announced: 21st June 2017

Sky Bet EFL regular season ends: weekend of 5th May 2018
Sky Bet EFL Play-Off Finals: weekend of 26th - 28th May 2018

More on that once we've got the fixture lists themselves out of the way.
