The SPFL has today confirmed that the fixture lists for the 2017/18 league season, sponsored by Ladbrokes, will be published on Friday 23 June.
On that day the full fixture lists will be revealed for all 42 clubs across the Ladbrokes Premiership, Ladbrokes Championship, Ladbrokes League 1 and Ladbrokes League 2.
It will start the countdown to the opening fixtures of the 2017/18 league campaign which take place on the weekend of Saturday 5 August.
The announcement follows the news earlier this week that Ladbrokes has extended its title sponsorship of the SPFL for another season.
SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “The announcement of league fixtures for a new Scottish football season is the most keenly-anticipated moment of the close season and this year will be no different.
“While there is still plenty of drama to unfold this season, we’re pleased to be able to advise clubs and supporters of this key date ahead of the next league campaign, adding to the positive news of Ladbrokes’ continued support for Scottish football.”
