Luton will be hoping to have a full house at Kenilworth Road when Peterborough visit on the opening day

Luton Town will begin their 2021-22 season at home to newly-promoted Peterborough on Saturday, August 7.

The visitors finished second in League One last term, and will head to Kenilworth Road for the first time since 2019, when Luton ran out 4-0 winners on their way to being crowned League One champions.

Following the scheduled Carabao Cup round one tie which will be drawn later today, Nathan Jones’ side then travel to West Bromwich Albion to take on their recently relegated Premier League outfit.

Luton’s first league midweek match is a trip to Barnsley, as the opening month is concluded with home games against Birmingham City and Sheffield United.

Following the first international break, September begins with back-to-back away trips to Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City the latter of which is scheduled for a Wednesday night.

Town's festive fixtures will see them entertain Bristol City on Boxing Day, visit Swansea City on Wednesday, December 29 and then head to Coventry City on New Year's Day.

The Hatters' Easter matches will see them host Nottingham Forest on Friday, April 15 and then travel to Cardiff City on Monday, April 18.
