Birmingham City’s first Championship fixture of the 2022/23 campaign against Huddersfield Town has been rescheduled.

The match that was initially set to take place at the traditional Saturday 3PM kick-off time on August 6 has been moved forward and will now take place a day earlier on the evening of Friday August 5 (kick-off 19:45).

Birmingham City are predicted to finish 19th in the Championship at the end of the 2022-23 season with 55 points, according to data experts FiveThirtyEight.

Alterations have been made ‘in consideration of events taking place at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games’ that run from Thursday 28 July up until Monday August 8.

Despite the change in dates, the game has not (as of yet) been selected for TV coverage, however, BluesTV will now be available to stream the game as a pay-per-view option.

The fixtures either side of this clash - the trip to Luton Town on July 30 and Carabao Cup clash with Norwich City on August 9 remain unaffected.
