Dundee will kick off the 2020/21 season by welcoming Forfar Athletic to Dens Park in the Betfred Cup group stage on October 6.
The Tuesday night clash with the League One Loons will herald the end to a very long summer for Dark Blues fans as lower league sides get back out on the pitch.
The Dens Park outfit will follow that opener with a lengthy trip to Highland champions Brora Rangers on Saturday, October 10, at 3pm before the group stage takes a break.
The Championship gets under way on October 17 with Dundee at Hearts meaning a wait until November 10 before League Cup action resumes.
That’ll see another midweek home match as Paul Hartley’s Cove Rangers come calling.
James McPake will then lead his side out in front of the Premier Sport cameras on Sunday, November 15, at his former club Hibs to complete Group B.
