2013/14 Championship Fixtures Released

Blackpool will open up their 2013/14 Championship campaign with a trip to newly-promoted Doncaster Rovers on Saturday 3 August. 

The Seasiders will come up against former loan player Paul Dickov at the Keepmoat, following his appointment as manager last month. 

The first home fixture at Bloomfield Road will take place on Saturday 10 August as Barnsley come to town, with home games against Reading and Brighton also taking place in the first month of the season. 

Home fixtures against Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan will all be played in October, while the festive period sees Blackpool host Leeds United on Boxing Day and Brighton on Sunday 29 December. An away game at Sheffield Wednesday awaits on New Year's Day. 

Three of Blackpool's four scheduled Tuesday night away fixtures - Millwall, Yeovil and Reading - do consist of long journeys, however. 

The Seasiders round-off the campaign with a home game against Charlton, currently scheduled for Saturday 3 May.
