Sheffield Wednesday 2020/21 Fixture List and How to Watch in the US & Canada

Todays blog post was written by Sean Forman, you can follow Sean on Twitter @SeansRamblings

We’re now into September and the English Football League Championship season is about to begin. For fans here in the Americas the best way to watch the Owls this season is on iFollow who are offering 3 options this year to fans who want to subscribe, but be careful as the price has been hiked across the board.

In the US the prices are:

- $178 for the full season

- $26 for a month

- $9 for 1 match

iFollow will get you 80-90% of our games across the season, occasionally the league games will get picked for global broadcast and then iFollow will be blacked out, cup games are also not included on iFollow. In the US you can watch most non iFollow games on ESPN + (another $5 / month) or in Canada they can be found on DAZN.

Sure, you can view Sheffield Wednesday’s schedule on the club’s website or many other places, but you’re already here on the Owls Americas website, so why not check out the schedule here too. Plus, no one else is going to have the commentary that you see below.

September 2020

Saturday, September 12 @ Cardiff City

Saturday, September 19 vs. Watford

Saturday, September 26 @Bristol City

SWFC’s first league match at Hillsborough is against recently relegated Watford. Welcome back to the EFL Championship, Watford!

October 2020

Saturday, October 3 vs. Queens Park Rangers

Saturday, October 17 @ Birmingham City

Wednesday, October 21 vs. Brentford

Saturday, October 24 vs. Luton Town

Wednesday, October 28 @ Rotherham United

Saturday, October 31 @ Wycombe Wanderers

I’m sure that we all remember those 2-3 days in August when there was talk of Jonathan Leko joining SWFC. Now we’ll see if Leko regrets his decision to play for Birmingham City instead.

Izzy Brown gets to play against his former teams Luton Town and Rotherham United in consecutive games!

November 2020

Tuesday, November 3 vs. AFC Bournemouth

Saturday, November 7 vs. Millwall

Saturday, November 21 @ Preston North End

Wednesday, November 25 @ Swansea City

Saturday, November 28 vs. Stoke City

After getting relegated from the Premier League, the entire world, and especially the United States, will be watching AFC Bournemouth travel to Hillsborough on November 3rd. This is by far the biggest thing happening in the world on the first Tuesday in November. Nothing else is happening that day. You don’t need to look this up.

On November 28th, Morgan Fox and Steven Fletcher return to Hillsborough. You may have heard of them.

December 2020

Wednesday, December 2 vs. Reading

Saturday, December 5 @ Norwich City

Tuesday, December 8 @ Huddersfield Town

Saturday, December 12 vs. Barnsley

Tuesday, December 15 @ Nottingham Forest

Saturday, December 19 vs. Coventry City

Saturday, December 26 @ Blackburn Rovers

Tuesday, December 29 vs. Middlesbrough

What a busy month! We’ll see how what kind of depth and fitness the squad has since 8 league matches in 4 weeks is surely gonna test 'em.

I also want to point out the December 5th match against Norwich City since my friend Jason is a Norwich City fan. I can’t image that there are many (or any) people who are both born and raised in Pittsburgh that are deeply interested in this match.

On December 8th, it’s a revenge match for Elias Kachunga and Izzy Brown as SWFC faces their former team, Huddersfield Town.

January 2021

Saturday, January 2 vs. Derby County

Saturday, January 16 @ Coventry City

Tuesday, January 19 vs. Wycombe Wanderers

Saturday, January 23 @ AFC Bournemouth

Saturday, January 30 vs. Preston North End

The new year starts with a match against Derby County and Wayne Rooney. You may know Rooney from his time at DC United when he did this, Im not sure what else the kid has done, but he's surely got a bright career ahead of him.

(And yes, feel free to ignore the blatant trip at the top of the screen at the 8-second mark since Wayne Rooney wasn’t involved in that.)

February 2021

Saturday, February 6 @ Millwall

Saturday, February 13 vs. Swansea City

Tuesday, February 16 @ Stoke City

Saturday, February 20 vs. Birmingham City

Wednesday, February 24 @ Brentford

Saturday, February 27 @ Luton Town

March 2021

Wednesday, March 3 vs. Rotherham United

Saturday, March 6 @ Reading

Saturday, March 13 vs. Norwich City

Wednesday, March 17 vs. Huddersfield Town

Saturday, March 20 @ Barnsley

In the first round of the Carabao Cup, Reading defeated Colchester United of League Two 3-1 behind a Lucas Joao hat trick. I might be the only person who thinks this, but I miss Lucas Joao (*Editor - I think you are ;))

April 2021

Friday, April 2 @ Watford

Monday, April 5 vs. Cardiff City

Saturday, April 10 @ Queens Park Rangers

Saturday, April 17 vs. Bristol City

Tuesday, April 20 vs. Blackburn Rovers

Saturday, April 24 @ Middlesbrough

FACT! April 2nd and April 5th matches are currently the only times Wednesday plays league matches on Friday and Monday this season. Damn you jeebus!

May 2021

Saturday, May 1 vs. Nottingham Forest

Saturday, May 8 @ Derby County

A midlands double to end the season against two teams who will surely be pushing for playoffs at least. Let's hope Rooney has retired by this point in the season.
