THE Football League has confirmed that next season will kick-off a week earlier on Saturday, August 3.

The decision to start the 2013/14 season slightly earlier than usual follows a ballot of clubs, with a clear majority in all three divisions preferring the chosen date as it means they will get an additional Saturday match.

The season will finish on Saturday, May 3, with the play-off finals being held at Wembley Stadium on May 24 to 26.

The 2013/14 Christmas and new year programme will include matches on Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 29, as well as Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
