Fleetwood Town are set for an exciting start to their first-ever campaign in the Football League.

The season kicks-off at Highbury with the visit of two-time European champions Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup (League Cup).  That’s quickly followed by the visit of Torquay United in npower League 2. Forest visit on Monday 13th August and kick-off is 7.45pm.  Torquay make the long journey to the north-west the following Saturday as Town turn their promotion prize into league football. The cup visit of the Championship side has an extra edge after new club owners dismissed manager Steve Cotterill instead of backing the former Burnley boss. The wealthy, Kuwaiti owners are looking to appoint a high profile manager with former England boss Glenn Hoddle emerging as the bookmakers' favourite for the post. Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson, and out-of-work pair Roy Keane and Mick McCarthy the other front-runners. Supporters have a range of fascinating options to watch the Highbury action next term in superb surroundings. Season tickets are very easy to purchase with 20% deposit and five monthly instalments.
