Southampton U23s kick-off their Premier League 2 campaign against Reading on August 14th at St Mary’s Stadium in 2017/18 season.

Under rules implemented by the league to enhance the matchday experience for players and fans, each club must host at least three matches at their main stadium during the course of the season.

The Under-23s will also face Newcastle and Middlesbrough at the home of Southampton’s first-team on October 16 and April 23, respectively, in Division Two.

Reading, the season’s first opponent, was also relegated with Southampton at the end of last year.

The Under-23s hope to bounce back after a difficult season saw them finish at the bottom of the Premier League 2’s top division.
