With an early finish to last season and a much later start to the new, curtailed, season many fans can't wait to see their clubs back in action.

There's still lots of uncertainty about how many supporters will be able to see their teams in person and how new streaming services for season ticket holders will work. However, we do now know what games are scheduled and that the big kick-off will be on Saturday 17th October.

Allan Johnston's Queen of the South will start their season away at Ayr United in the Championship.

Stranraer's first outing after being relegated to League Two is a home tie against highland side Elgin City. Elsewhere in the same division, Annan Athletic head to Cowdenbeath.
