The League 1 Super 8s and League 1 Shield fixtures for 2016 have been released.
The new format for 2016 will see the Super 8s teams play each other once with the top four teams having four home fixtures and the bottom four having three home fixtures.
After seven matches, first will play second in the League 1 Promotion Final with the winning team promoted; the losing team will enter a four-club play-off with a home fixture against the fifth-placed team whilst second plays third.
The winners of those two matches will contest a play-off final for the second promotion place.
In the League 1 Shield, the teams will play each other once (three home and three away) before the first and second-placed teams complete in a play-off final for the League 1 Shield trophy.
