WREXHAM first game in League One for 19 years will be against Wycombe Wanderers at The Racecourse and Phil Parkinson couldn't be happier.

The 2024-25 season kicks off on Saturday August 10 and Phil Parkinson's side, who have climbed from the National League to the third tier after winning back-to-back promotions for the first time in the club's history, are at home to the Chairboys on the opening day.

"It is absolutely great to be at home," said Parkinson. "We can't complain.

"It's been a long wait for the club to get back into this level - 19 years - and when the supporters see the fixtures, I am sure there will be great excitement."

The first away game is at Bolton Wanderers, who Parkinson led to promotion from this division in 2016-17, on August 17 and it will be another special day for the 56-year-old when Wrexham return home on August 24 for the visit of Reading who the Reds' boss made more than 350 league appearances for as a player from 1992 to 2003.

"I have got connections with quite a few of the clubs and it is very exciting to be going back to Bolton in their first home game of the season," said Parkinson.

A trip to Peterborough United on August 31 completes the opening month while Wrexham are away at Birmingham City - installed as title favourites following their relegation from the Championship last term - on September 14.

There are some tough away games early in the campaign against teams expected to challenge for promotion but Parkinson can't wait.

"The away games at the start - Bolton, Peterborough and Birmingham - are fantastic fixtures," he said,

"That is what we have worked so hard to get into League One for."

There are two home matches for Reds' supporters to look forward to over the festive period.

Blackpool come to the Racecourse on Boxing Day while Wigan Athletic are the visitors on Sunday December 29.

"It is good for us around the Christmas period,"  added Parkinson, who takes his side to Barnsley on New Year's Day.

"After being away at Swindon last year on Boxing Day, to have Blackpool at home on Boxing Day and then Wigan also at home on December 29 are two fantastic fixtures we will really look forward to."

The first derby against cross-border rivals Shrewsbury Town will be at The Racecourse on September 7. The return clash in Shropshire takes place on January 18.

Wrexham have a home fixture against Bristol Rovers on Good Friday and the Easter double-header concludes with a trip to Blackpool on Monday April 21.

The final match at The Racecourse is against Charlton Athletic on April 26 and Reds' fans will be hoping there is something to celebrate going in the final game of the regular season away to Lincoln City on May 3.
