Forest Green Rovers beat Tranmere in the National League promotion final at Wembley in May

National League winners Lincoln will begin the campaign away at Wycombe.

Relegated Coventry start at home to Notts County, while Swindon begin away at Carlisle, Port Vale travel to Crawley and Chesterfield host Grimsby.

Newport, who memorably survived on a dramatic final day last season, travel to Stevenage for their first match.

Exeter, who lost to Blackpool in May’s League Two play-off final at Wembley, start at home to Cambridge.

Elsewhere on the opening day, Accrington begin at home to Colchester, Crewe face Mansfield, Luton take on Yeovil and Morecambe are at home to Cheltenham.

Forest Green play their home matches in Nailsworth, which will become the smallest settlement to host an EFL club.
