#FixtureReleaseDay: Sky Bet Championship stadium guide part one

21 June 2017

Following the release of the 2017/18 EFL fixtures, bwfc.co.uk casts an eye over the 23 Sky Bet Championship stadiums Wanderers will be visiting during the upcoming campaign.

As Phil Parkinson’s men prepare to return to English football’s second tier after just a solitary year away, 2017/18 will see Whites supporters making a number of familiar journeys alongside a handful which they have not made quite so often in recent years.

And in the first of a three-part series, bwfc.co.uk profiles the stadiums which we will be frequenting over the coming months.
