Bristol City will start and finish their 2022/23 Championship season away from home after they were handed an opening day match away at Hull City.
The Robins for the first time since 2015/16 will start their campaign on the road and will take on a side they comfortably disposed of last season, winning 5-0 in their final home match of the season.

Kasey Palmer, who recently left the club on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, will make his return to the West Country in a midweek fixture on Tuesday, October 4.
City's other derby with Welsh opposition will see them play at home again, hosting Russell Martin's side on Saturday, October 29, before another trip to South Wales in March, facing them on Saturday March 18.

The season will resume on December 10 and they will play both Rotherham United away and Stoke City at home whilst international football's showpiece event goes on.
City will conclude their season on Saturday, May 6, where they will travel to West London to face Queens Park Rangers who are managed by Steven Gerrard's former assistant Michael Beale.
