Key dates for the Millers to look out for following the release of the 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship fixtures this morning.
Rotherham United will kick off their 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship campaign at AESSEAL New York Stadium, where we will take on Swansea City on the opening day.
The Millers will be on home soil on the opening day for the second successive campaign, with the fixture against Swans taking place on Saturday 30th July 2022.
Rotherham United’s only South Yorkshire derbies this term will be against Sheffield United.
First up, the Millers travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday 10th September 2022, before hosting the Blades at AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday 4th February.
The Millers will also lock horns with West Yorkshire neighbours Huddersfield Town. The terries will visit AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday 15th October, with the reverse fixture taking place on Thursday 29th December.
The forthcoming season promises to be a campaign like no other, with a winter break to be incorporated into the schedule, owing to the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals being held in Qatar.
Due to the aforementioned World Cup tournament, the second tier season will pause on 12th November, following a trip to Kenilworth Road to take on Luton town, with the league set to resume on 10th December when Rotherham host Bristol City.
Christmas and New Year
Stoke City will visit AESSEAL New York Stadium for the traditional Boxing Day fixture on 26th December, with the Millers visiting Huddersfield Town three days later, before visiting Millwall on New Years Day.
The Carabao Cup draw is also set to take place today (Thursday 23rd June), from 2:30pm. Clubs from the Championship down to League Two enter the first stage of the competition which begins in a regionalised format.
Millers fans will need to keep an eye out for ball number 26 in the Northern Section of the competition.
The first round of the competition will take place on the week commencing Wednesday 10th August.
Paul Warne’s men will finish their campaign with a trip to face fellow promoted side, Wigan Athletic at DW Stadium on Saturday 6th May, with their final home fixture being a week earlier, against Middlesbrough on Saturday 29th April.
Will any of these dates change?
Of course, all of our 2021/22 fixtures are subject to change, most notably in the instances in which we are picked for television broadcast.
Clubs do have a short period of time following the 9am fixture release to mutually agree any changes to their schedules.
