Vincent Kompany’s Burnley will kick off the new Sky Bet Championship season with a trip to Huddersfield on Friday, July 29.

The clash between the newly-relegated Clarets and Carlos Corberan’s Terriers, who lost in last season’s play-off final, tops the EFL fixture list for the new campaign, which was published on Thursday.

Relegated Norwich travel to Cardiff the following day, while Rob Edwards must wait until Monday, August 1 to begin his Watford reign with a home opener against Sheffield United.

In the first Saturday tea-time game, West Brom travel north to face Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

The opening weekend of the campaign also features a Lancashire derby between newly-promoted Wigan and Preston, while Sunderland welcome Coventry to the Stadium of Light on Sunday.

Kompany will mark his first Championship home game as Burnley boss when his side face Luton at Turf Moor on August 6.

Watford appear to have the toughest start of all the pre-season promotion contenders, as they follow their opener against the Blades with a trip to West Brom, then a home clash with Burnley on August 13.

All three newly-relegated sides face favourable final-day home games on May 6, with Burnley taking on Cardiff, Norwich facing on Blackpool and Watford playing Stoke at Vicarage Road.

However, two potentially pivotal games in the penultimate round of fixtures on April 29 see Watford travel to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland, while Norwich take on West Brom at The Hawthorns.
