A 2020 First Division draft fixture list has been released by the SSE Airtricity League today.
The draft fixture list is in line with the dates previously advised but is based on 11 teams competing in the League, so every week one side would not have a fixture.
In a statement from the League, they have said: "The National League Executive Committee has agreed the draft fixture list will consist of two rounds of League fixtures and maintains the play-off format. It will be preceded by a First Division Shield Competition."
The fixture list is a draft and is based on all clubs being granted a licence to play so therefore, it is subject to change.

The need for the revised plans comes about as Limerick FC await to find out if they will be granted a licence to play in the First Division in the upcoming season.
The club, which late last year was the subject of a failed examinership process were invited by the FAI to apply for a licence for the 2020 season last week.
That invitation to apply meant that High Court action taken by Limerick FC against the FAI was settled earlier this week.
The FAI issued a statement last Friday that Limerick FC can apply for a licence to compete in the SSE Airtricity League First Division and the underage leagues for the 2020 season.
The first round of fixtures on Friday the 21st of February will see Cabinteely host neighbours Bray Wanderers while Wexford will be away to Cobh Ramblers, Limerick then, should they get a licence, will host UCD and Galway United will head to Drogheda.
The following day Longford will host Athlone Town so Shamrock Rovers II have no fixture in the opening weekend.
