2022/23 Sky Bet Championship fixtures released

Blues' fixtures have been revealed for the fast-approaching 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship season.

Birmingham City will kickstart their 120th season in the English football league system on the weekend of Saturday 30 July 2022, a week earlier than last season's curtain-raiser victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The Carabao Cup will begin week commencing 8 August and conclude in the League Cup final being played at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 26 February 2023.

This campaign will differ from those previous due to the scheduling of the 2022 FIFA Men's World Cup in Qatar that takes place over a five-week period in November and December 2022, with the EFL Schedule adjusted to accommodate.

Match round 16 in the Championship, diarised for Saturday 12 November, will be Blues' final game played ahead of the tournament's call-up period which begins on Monday 14 November.

Second tier matches will resume on Saturday 10 December 2022 following the culmination of the World Cup's initial stages, whilst the existing international call-up postponement criteria will be applied throughout where necessary.

The 46-game schedule, across nine months, is set to climax on the weekend of Saturday 6 May 2023, with the play-off final to be played between the 27-29 May 2023.

Blues will kick-off on the road at Luton Town on Saturday 30 July, where they won 0-5 last August, before welcoming Huddersfield Town to St. Andrew's a week later.

Regular season action will come to a close when hosting Sheffield United, seven days on from the short trip to Coventry City.
