The fixture for the 2016/17 Championship League season was announced today and the Garry Monk era will officially begin on August 7. Get excited United fans, that’s only 45 days away!

Leeds will open the campaign with an away trip to Queens Park Rangers on the first Sunday of August. The match will have a lunchtime kick off and be broadcast on Sky Sports.

Elland Road will play host to the season’s first home fixture against Birmingham City on August 13.

Monk’s first month in charge will conclude with a home clash with Fulham on August 16, the season’s first Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on 20 August and a trip to Nottingham Forest seven days later.

Newly relegated Newcastle make the trip to Yorkshire after the November international break while United make their trip up to the Toon on April 15.

The Christmas period will see Leeds face Preston North End at Deepdale on Boxing Day followed by a big time clash with another Championship newcomer Aston Villa on New Years Eve. The festive schedule concludes with a home Yorkshire derby against Rotherham United on January 2.

Norwich City will be present for the last game at Elland Road on April 29, with the season concluding with an away fixture against Will Griggs and Wigan Athletic on May 7. Hopefully May 7 will mark the date when Yorkshire is on fire and a Leeds United return to the big time is offical. A man can only hope...
