With the fixtures announced earlier today, Brighton know they will face Derby County at the iPro Stadium on the opening weekend of the Championship campaign.

It’s the first time Brighton are away on the opening day for the first time in three years, and the season kicks off on Saturday August 6.

Nottingham Forest are the first side to travel to the Amex in the coming year, as they visit on August 13.

The Christmas schedule sees a trip north to Blackburn Rovers on December 13, and we host Queens Park Rangers on Boxing Day. The 2016 portion of the campaign closes with a home game to Cardiff City on New Year’s Eve.

January 2 sees us travel to Fulham, and the campaign closes with an away trip to relegated Aston Villa.
