The Northern Ireland Football League is pleased to announce the fixture schedule for the 2020/21 Championship campaign.
The 22-week season kicks off on Saturday 28 November 2020 and concludes on Saturday 22 May 2021.
The first round of fixtures throws up a mouth watering clash between last season's runners-up Ballinamallard United and third placed Loughgall at Ferney Park.
Another intriguing encounter sees Premier Intermediate League champions Annagh United kick off life in the second tier at home to Institute, recently relegated from the top flight.
Elsewhere, Dundela and Ards - both very active in the transfer market during the summer - meet at Wilgar Park, Ballyclare Comrades welcome Knockbreda to Dixon Park while Newry City and Queen's University begin the new season at home to Dergview and HW Welders respectively.
