Football League 2013/14 season to start on August 3

First published in Sport by , Group Sports Editor

The Football League has confirmed the 2013/14 season with start earlier than usual on August 3.

This decision follows a ballot of clubs, with a “clear majority in all three divisions preferring the chosen date as it delivers an additional Saturday match”.

The season will end on May 3, with the play-off finals being staged at Wembley Stadium from May 24 to May 26.

The festive programme for the 2013/14 season will feature games on Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 29, as well as Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Random thought, about EFC being in the Prem next season. When L*t*n were in the top flight, they resigned from the Football League along with all the other teams, leading to the creation of the Prem League.

L*t*n were relegated at the end of the season - so they had to re-apply to the FL. Funny they are not good enough for it.

WFC Prem League - L*t*n still losing play offs for FL Div 2.

I think 3 August is too early to start the season. Attendances will be affected by this as loads of people will be on holiday during August. I remember many years ago the season started right at the end of August. Soon the season will start so early that the players will need to come back for pre-season training before the previous season has finished. LOL
