Charlton Athletic will travel to newly-promoted Bournemouth on the first day of the new football season.
The trip to Dean Court on August 3 will be followed by a home game against Middlesbrough and an away day at Barnsley the following weekend.
Following Crystal Palace’s promotion to the Premier League the Addicks have been left with just one south London derby to tackle in 2013/14.
Chris Powell’s men welcome Millwall to The Valley on September 21 before travelling to The Den on March 15.
Other stand-out fixtures include welcoming FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic to The Valley in October and travelling to recently-relegated London rivals Queens Park Rangers the following month.
They end the season away to Blackpool on May 3.
Charlton finished ninth last season in their first season back in the Championship following a three-season absence.
They have already strengthened the squad with the signing of Swansea City midfielder Mark Gower, while Andy Hughes, Dorian Dervitte and Callum Harriott have extended their deals.
