Championship 2022/23 fixtures, dates and schedule: Norwich City start with Cardiff trip

The 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship season will get under way on Friday July 29, when play-off finalists Huddersfield host relegated Burnley at the John Smith's Stadium, live on Sky Sports.

The following day, Norwich begin life back in the second tier with a trip to Cardiff, while newly-promoted Rotherham and Wigan start with home ties against Swansea and Preston respectively. On Sunday July 31, Sunderland host Coventry and on Monday August 1, Watford face Sheffield United at Vicarage Road.

The Championship will continue until matchday 21 on November 12 - by which point teams will have played six midweek rounds of fixtures - when the competition will pause for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

But while the Premier League will not resume again until Boxing Day, it will get back up and running just under a month later on Saturday December 10 with a full round of fixtures, which includes the Lancashire derby between Blackburn at Preston at Ewood Park.

There will be three further matchdays before the end of 2022, with matches to be played on New Year's Day, too. Three of the remaining 20 rounds of fixtures will be played in midweek.

The regular season comes to a close on Saturday May 6, with each match kicking off simultaneously at 3pm, and the play-off semi-finals will follow, though dates will be finalised for those fixtures closer to the time. The play-off final is set to take place at Wembley Stadium on Monday May 29 2023.
