To that end we publish today this at-a-glance guide to where Sheffield Wednesday supporters face travelling to during the coming campaign.
Premier League relegated Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa join the 24-club fray along with League One's newly promoted Wigan Athletic, Burton Albion and nearby Barnsley.
August 6 marks the start of a season that will see regional rivalry resume when Owls fans go to Rotherham, many likely journeying just under nine miles via assorted, increasingly vocal, local hostelries.
Deepest, darkest southern side Brighton is tantamount to a tour at formidable 460 mile round trip, presumably involving whippets quarantined at Watford Gap and pump sparklers hand delivered to bar staff to ensure decent-ish heads on flat pints.
Watch this space for June 22 9am fixtures announcement and, meanwhile, share with us - and fellow followers - your recommended travel arrangements, away boozers, best beer and pie outlets and fave overnight crashes to make a night of it when you're "out, out" celebrating another Wednesday win.
