The pick of the fixtures in League One sees Leicester - in the third tier for the first time in their history - host MK Dons, who this week rejected their approach to speak to manager Paul Ince.
Beaten play-off finalists Leeds begin their campaign at relegated Scunthorpe, Colchester kick off at Hartlepool and the three teams also promoted alongside MK Dons all travel - Peterborough to Southend, Hereford to Leyton Orient and play-off winners Stockport face Huddersfield.
The two clubs promoted to the Football League are also both on the road on the opening day of the League Two campaign. Conference champions Aldershot face a trip to Accrington Stanley, while Exeter - who won the play-off final at Wembley - face a 665-mile round trip to face Darlington.
