Over the weekend of 26-28 June, five fixtures will be televised including Bristol City’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday 28 June at 12.00pm and Nottingham Forest v Huddersfield Town at 2.15pm.

As part of three televised midweek fixtures, Preston North End will take centre stage on Wednesday, July 1 at 5pm when they take on Derby County at Deepdale, as they become the first club in English football to play 5,000 League fixtures.

Sky Sports will broadcast 30 of the remaining 108 Championship matches, with season ticket holders not missing any of the action as all home and away fixtures will be streamed via a club’s iFollow (or equivalent) service.

Access to the games will be determined by the club where the supporter holds a season ticket and may be in lieu of a refund or part of a wider package as determined by each individual Club.
