Checkatrade Trophy dates confirmed

24 July 2017

Cheltenham Town will play Swansea City in their first Checkatrade Trophy group stage game of the season on Tuesday 15 August at the LCI Rail Stadium (7.45pm).

This date is two weeks earlier than the originally scheduled slot for the match, which fell during an international break so Swansea were entitled to request a switch due to having several players called up by various Welsh international teams.

The second match at the group stage will see Cheltenham Town play host to Forest Green Rovers. This match will take place on Tuesday 3 October, also at 7.45pm.

Admission prices for both of these matches have been set at the same rate as last season - £5 for adults and £3 concessions.

The third and final Checkatrade Trophy group stage match will be away to Newport County AFC on Tuesday 7 November at the slighly earlier time of 7.30pm. The home side have also significantly reduced prices for this game to £5 all adults and £3 for juniors.

As last season there will be 16 groups at the first round stage and the top two from each group will go through to the knockout stages. The Checkatrade Trophy final will be at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 8 April 2018.
