This year’s highly-anticipated fixture release will be on Tuesday, September 8 at 1pm.

The season begins in just over a months’ time.

The National League clubs will get things underway on Saturday, October 3 while the National League North and South sides will be in FA Cup action that day - and their battle for points kicks off with a midweek programme days later.

Because of the later-than-usual start, the league season will conclude on Saturday, May 29.

The play-offs for each division will take place over the first three weekends of June.

The festive period is always crucial to supporters and there will of course be a full Boxing Day offering on Saturday, December 26.

Games will also be scheduled for Monday, December 28, with the first match of 2021 pencilled in for Saturday, January 2.
