Dates for EFL competitions

The EFL has confirmed a start date of 7th August for the new League One football season, hopefully with a full DW Stadium (we can but dream).

As far as we are aware, the new owners want to put a couple of games on pre-season at the stadium too, so we should get to see our team, maybe a new kit and certainly the new owner, before the start of the new season.

The Carbao Cup starts 9th August, and trannsfer dealine will run for 12 weeks from Wednesday June 9 and will close at 11pm on Tuesday August 31

Here’s a breakdown

  • Start Date – Saturday 7 August 2021 (with a live television game likely on Friday 6 August)
  • Carabao Cup Round One – w/c 9 August 2021
  • Carabao Cup Final – Sunday 27 February 2022
  • Papa John’s Trophy Round One – w/c 30 August 2021
  • Papa John’s Trophy Final – Sunday 3 April 2022
