Northern feel to the Championship next term...
Our travelling fans will see over 1,000 miles shaved off their road trips for next season with the Championship shaping up to be a real northern division.
Blackpool went down 2-1 to West Ham in the Championship Play-Off final at Wembley last weekend, and their presence once again further increases what is a predominantly northern division.
Nine of our 23 away matches will take place in Yorkshire or Lancashire as the mileage comes plummeting down in what will be a division full of local encounters.
All Yorkshire affairs facing us next season are Middlesbrough, Hull, Barnsley, and Sheffield Wednesday, with either Sheffield United or Huddersfield Town adding to that tally after next weekend's League One Play-Off final.
Across the border, along with Blackpool, we will face clashes with Burnley and newly relegated duo Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers.
Derby County, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City represent the East Midlands contingent while the West Midlands will be represented by Wolves and Birmingham City.
With Portsmouth and Southampton both exiting the league, our longest trip of the season will be to Brighton.
The presence of League One winners Charlton also means we will face three trips to South East London with the Addicks joining Crystal Palace and Millwall in the division.
Fans are reminded that the fixtures for next season are released on Monday June 18.
