Sheffield Wednesday supporters will be raring to go for the upcoming campaign, and it will feel like the start is near as the Championship 2020/21 fixtures were recently announced.
The club tweeted out an image showing all the fixtures of the new season, which will start on September 12th, and the Owls face a very tricky away trip to start their season as they face Cardiff, who finished in the play-offs last season.
The first game at Hillsborough on the 19th September is also a very hard fixture as they face Watford, who were relegated from the Premier League last season and so Garry Monk will have to make sure that he gets pre-season exactly right so that the squad are fit and raring to go for Championship campaign.
It doesn’t help either that the club currently have a 12 point deduction, so they already have a big challenge, but they are already preparing well as they have made three signings. There has been a mixed reaction from a lot of the Owls fan base as some are worried about the start, whilst others are just fit and raring for the season to start.
Here is what they said following the news:
We are going to need a squad & a half to get through December, with 8 games the list looks unbalanced, pretty sure they’ll be praying for a significant snow fall just for some recovery time.
Not good for a threadbare squad!

Nice to see we are home for the first and last game plus Boxing Day! Oh wait a minute that’s what you get when not being stiffed by the EFL! Come on Wednesday let’s show them what we are about!

@WestMidlandsOwl not looking great for fixtures in our region can’t see away fans being let back in that soon! Cardiff/Bristol and Birmingham all closest to me 😑

Looking through the list to see where I think the “Easies” are. There aren’t any, a tough league this year. Going to have to be focussed on results #swfc

That start is a bugger.
