The fixture list has been released and now we wait for the steady stream of games involving Leeds United to be moved for either live TV coverage or on Police advice.
Leeds had thirteen games moved last season after they were originally released in June. Sky chose seven for live coverage and there were six moved on Police advice.
Since Leeds promotion back to the Championship in 2010, their three opening league fixtures have all been moved for live TV coverage. Last season, the opener against Wolves kicked off on Saturday lunch with Leeds winning 1-0 thanks to a Luciano Becchio goal.
Leeds open with Brighton at home this season and whilst the games at Elland Road in the past two seasons haven`t been chosen for TV coverage, both games at the Amex have been moved to a Friday night for Sky TV coverage.
In the opening month, a few games could appeal. Leicester City away on the second weekend of the season and the home games with Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers. If Sheffield Wednesday is not chosen for TV coverage, there is a definite possibility that West Yorkshire Police will move the kick off time.
Millwall and Huddersfield are also games that WYP also like to move.
Yeovil, Doncaster, Derby, Blackpool and Nottingham Forest are all games away from home that could see their kick-off times changed on the order of the local constabulary.
So which game do you think will be moved first for either TV or on Police advice?
