2018/19 Championship line-up complete

City now know each of the 23 teams they will face during the 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Stoke City’s ten-year stay in the top-flight has come to an end, while West Brom and Swansea City also dropped down from the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers and Rotherham United all secured an immediate return to the second tier of English football.

Six teams City won’t be facing next year are Wolves, Cardiff City and Fulham – each promoted to the Premier League – plus Sunderland, Burton Albion and Barnsley, all of whom suffered relegation to League One.

The 2018/19 season will be City's fourth-successive year in the Sky Bet Championship, following their 11th-place finish last season - the club's highest finish for eight years.
