For the second time in consecutive seasons, Newcastle United have been scheduled to take on Manchester City on the opening day of the Premier League season.
After a 4-0 drubbing at the Etihad last season, The Magpies this term welcome the champions to St James' Park on the 16th of August.
Key dates in the calender include a boxing day trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United before welcoming newly promoted Burnley to St James' Park on New Year's Day.
The two hotly contested Tyne/Wear derby fixtures have been scheduled to take place on the 20th of December (St James' Park) and the 4th of April (Stadium of Light).
Although both of these fixtures are likely to be re-scheduled to the Sunday of the given week for both television and policing reasons.
The Premier League may find they come under some criticism for their scheduling of the first of the two North East derbys. The fixture falls on what is known as 'Black Eye Weekend' in the region (the last weekend before Christmas) and this time of the year is notorious for an inflated number of alcohol related arrests.
It will no doubt be a busy weekend for Northumbria Police who are unlikely to be including the FA on their Christmas card list this year.
Newcastle look to have a favourable run of fixtures as the season draws to a close facing Swansea, Leicester City, West Brom and QPR before wrapping up the campaign against West Ham at St James' Park on the 24th of May.
