Premier League and Football League clubs will discover their fixtures for the 2013-14 season at 9am on Wednesday.

England’s top flight will kick off on the weekend of August 17 and 18, with the three divisions below due to get started seven days earlier.

All dates will be subject to change, with matches needing to be moved for television when broadcasting companies size up the list.

Cardiff City Stadium will be the only truly new stadium to the list of 20 Premier League venues, with Hull City’s KC Stadium and Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park having hosted top-flight football in previous spells.

At least five new managers will be on the touchlines on the first weekend of the season, with Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City, Manchester United and Stoke City all having changed their managers so far this summer.

David Moyes’ side will face Championship outfit Wigan in the curtain-raising Community Shield prior to the Premier League’s kick-off as a result of the Latics winning the FA Cup before their relegation.
