Middlesbrough will have their opening fixture for the 2022/2023 Championship season shown live on Sky Sports. Chris Wilder’s side host West Brom on Saturday, July 30, in the evening slot with kick-off at 5.30pm.

It’s an intriguing clash between two sides who are both targeting a promotion push this season. West Brom had a disappointing first season back in the second-tier, finishing 10th but summer reinforcements are likely and Bruce will be desperate to get off to a flying start at the Riverside Stadium.

With the Premier League returning in August, the Championship opening weekend will have a host of matches on Sky Sports. Friday’s traditional curtain raiser sees Huddersfield host Burnley, with Sunderland’s first game back in the Championship against Coventry on Sunday. Monday night’s clash comes from Vicarage Road as Watford host Sheffield United.
