2008/09 fixtures released

Mark Hughes’ first Premier League game in charge of Manchester City will be away at Aston Villa.

The 08/09 Barclays Premier League fixture list was released this morning and revealed that the Blues will travel to the Midlands for their opening fixture on August 16th.

Our first home game, a week later, will be against West Ham United. Our first encounter with Manchester United is at home on November 29th, with the return on May 9th 2009.

Newly-promoted Stoke City pay their first visit to the City of Manchester Stadium on October 25th, while Hull City will be the visitors for the game on Boxing Day.

Obviously subject to much change once the suits at Sky and Setanta get together (not to mention our potential UEFA Cup involvement), but our 2008/09 fixtures as announced this morning can be found here, with the full Premier League opening day fixtures posted over at Football Rants.

vote it up!
