Owls face early season TV test
League Cup tie selected for live coverage
Sheffield Wednesday’s season will kick-off in front of the Sky TV cameras following Thursday’s draw for the 1st round of the League Cup.
The competition, now sponsored by Capital One, begins in the week prior to the start of the Football League season and the Owls face a tricky trip to League One side Oldham Athletic.
Wednesday will travel to Boundary Park on Monday 13th August for a 7.45pm kick-off and Dave Jones will be hoping his side can kick their season off with a win ahead of their first game back in the Championship the following weekend.
The Owls managed to do the double over Oldham on their way to promotion from League One last season, winning 2-0 away and following that up with a 3-0 win at Hillsborough in front of the TV cameras.
