Birmingham City have already had a Championship fixture re-arranged ahead of the 2022/23 season with the game away at Hull City being postoned by 24 hours.

Blues’ trip to the MKM Stadium, originally scheduled for Saturday 15th October has been moved to Sunday 16th October, though kick-off remains the same at 15:00 (GMT).

The postponement is due to Hull’s hosting of the ‘Hull Fair,’ one of Europe’s largest travelling funfairs which is in Humberside during that week.

So, if Blues fans fancied a trip to the fair before or after the game - it looks like you’re going to have to make the trip 24 hours earlier!

Last year’s visit to the MKM Stadium was one to forget as Hull ran out 2-0 winners in a game which saw Gary Gardner red-carded before half-time.
