This season's SSE Airtricity League season will officially resume on July 31 with the Premier Division meeting of Derry City and Sligo Rovers. 

The fixtures for the remainder of the truncated 2020 season have been released.

The season will be decided by two rounds of matches between the ten sides.

Games won't be confined to Friday nights, with the first six series of games spread across their respective weekends.

The three FAI Cup first round ties will be played on Monday and Tuesday, August 10-11.

The second round has been pencilled in for the weekend ending Sunday August 30.

First Division action will remain predominantly a Friday night affair, with the bulk of games being played under the lights from July 31.

The league season will conclude on Friday October 30, with all five top flight games kicking off at 7.45.

Those final round matches will see current leaders Shamrock Rovers go to Dublin rivals Shelbourne, while Dundalk will be at home to Sligo Rovers.

There will be almost a month between the final round of games and this season's FAI Cup final, which will be played on the weekend ending Sunday November 29.
