Fans will have to wait two days longer than most other sets of supporters as Watford's first game of the new Championship season will be at home to Sheffield United on Monday, August 1, and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The first away trip of the season will be to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, August 6 - though when looking at August and September fixtures, it's worth bearing in mind that Sky Sports have yet to announce their other live game choices.

Saturday, October 22 (at Vicarage Road) and Saturday, April 1 (at Kenilworth Road) are two dates that will go straight in the diary as that's when the Hornets will play Luton Town.

The 100th anniversary of the first game at Vicarage Road will be marked by a home fixture against Middlesbrough on Tuesday, August 30.

There are only three games scheduled between November 6 and Boxing Day due to the World Cup Finals in Qatar, and the Hornets will be at home to Millwall on December 26.

A combination of that that break for the World Cup, bank holidays and the additional six league games in the Championship mean that Watford are currently scheduled to play 14 league games on a day other than Saturday. The first midweek away trip is set to be to Birmingham City on Tuesday, August 16.
