South Wales derby among Swans fixture changes

Swansea City’s early-season south Wales derby meeting with Cardiff City has been put back 24 hours after being selected for live TV coverage.

Luke Williams' side had been due to host the Bluebirds on Saturday, 24 August, but the fixture will now be played on Sunday, 25 August, with a 15:00 BST kick-off.

The Swans’ home game against Bristol City has also been put back a day because it will be shown live on Sky Sports.

That match will now take place on Sunday, 29 September (15:00 BST).

As a result, Swansea’s trip to Sheffield United has also been put back 24 hours, meaning that will now take place on Wednesday, 2 October (19:45 BST).

Swansea start the new Championship campaign with a trip to Middlesbrough on Saturday, 10 August.
