LEAGUE 1 LINE UP COMPLETE FOLLOWING DONS PROMOTION

30 May 2016

The full line up of teams in Sky Bet League 1 for the forthcoming 2016/2017 season is now complete following AFC Wimbledon's promotion at Wembley Stadium this Monday (30 May 2016).

Neal Ardley's Wimbledon secured themselves a place in the third tier of English football for the first time in their history thanks to a 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle in the Sky Bet League 2 Play-Off Final.

Dons striker Lyle Taylor gave the London side the lead twelve minutes from the end of normal time before substitute Adebayo Akinfenwa sealed the win with a penalty deep into stoppage time.

Following Millwall's loss to Barnsley in Sunday's League 1 Play-Off Final, Wimbledon's victory means all twenty-three of City's league opponents have now been confirmed for the new season. 

They are:

AFC Wimbledon
Bolton Wanderers
Bristol Rovers
Bury
Charlton Athletic
Chesterfield
Coventry City
Fleetwood Town
Gillingham
Millwall

Milton Keynes Dons
Northampton Town
Oldham Athletic
Oxford United
Peterborough United
Port Vale

Rochdale
Scunthorpe United
Sheffield United
Shrewsbury Town
Southend United
Swindon Town
Walsall


City's full League 1 fixture list for the 2016/2017 campaign will be announced on Wednesday 22 June 2016.
