The fixtures for the new Premier League 2 season have been announced, with a home game against Swansea at Colney starting the season for Norwich City Under-23s.
That match will clash with the first team's opening game at Liverpool though, as it's being played at Colney on Friday, August 9, at 7pm.
Trips to Sunderland and Aston Villa follow, before another home game on Friday, August 30, against Middlesbrough.
The only games currently scheduled to be played at Carrow Road are against Reading and Newcastle in April, however U23 fixtures do tend to be moved around during the season.
West Ham and Swansea were relegated to Division Two of PL2 last season, while Wolves and Southampton were promoted, with Norwich finishing second from bottom in 11th place.
Manchester United, Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Ham are the other Premier League clubs to have an U23 in the 12-team Division Two competition, which has a play-off for the second promotion spot.
