Doncaster Rovers can confirm some key dates for the 2016/17 Sky Bet League 2 campaign.

The newly-branded Sky Bet EFL will kick-off on the weekend of Saturday 6th August 2016 but, before that, the all-important fixture release day will take place on 22nd June 2016. 

The opening round of matches will be immediately followed by the first round of the League Cup, during the week commencing 8th August 2016. 

The Christmas period is always an exciting time and there will be the usual bumper festive schedule in the Sky Bet EFL, with matches being held on Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, and on Monday 2nd January 2017. 

The final round of games will take place on Saturday 6th May 2017. 

The Sky Bet Play-Off Finals will be played over split weekends due to the FA Cup Final taking place on Saturday 27th May 2017.
