The EFL have confirmed that the new season will begin on the weekend of September 12.

Wanderers will therefore begin life in League Two in seven weeks’ time with the Premier League, Championship and League One also getting under way at the same time.

The EFL regular season will conclude on May 8 and 9, the league said, with the play-offs to follow at the end of the month.

It means the season will begin behind closed doors, with spectators only set to return to venues on a socially-distanced basis from October 1.
