Supporters will be able to watch the first ever game at our new home live on our YouTube channel this afternoon. Thomas Frank's side take on Oxford United later today, kick-off 3pm, with our pre-match show, hosted by Stu Wakeford, going live at 2.30pm.
Subscribe to our YouTube channel here and be notified as soon as we go live.
There will be build-up before the game, live coverage, and then post-match reaction as a new chapter in our history begins at our new home.
On Sunday it was announced that the safety certificate had been issued for our new home and that it was ready to host matches. The first of these games will take place this afternoon when Thomas Frank's side take on last season's beaten Sky Bet League One Play-Off finalists.
The Us ended the shortened 2019/20 League One season in fourth position before progressing past Portsmouth in the Play-Off Semi-Finals. However, there was to be no perfect ending as Karl Robinson’s side were beaten 2-1 by Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley Stadium.
The game will also be our final warm-up ahead of the first competitive game in our new home, Sunday's Carabao Cup First Round tie against Wycombe Wanderers.
Oxford are also building up to a Carabao Cup tie this weekend, hosting AFC Wimbledon on Saturday. Robinson's side recorded convincing wins over Woking and Banbury United to begin their pre-season before losing 2-1 to Crystal Palace last Tuesday. They returned to winning ways this weekend with a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers at The Kassam Stadium.
The game will also be the first time our new Umbro 20/21 home shirt will be worn. Check out the range and buy online here.
