Forest Green Rovers welcome Barnet in their first game in the Football League on the opening day of the Sky Bet League Two season on 5 August.
Forest Green won the National League play-off final to secure their EFL place and their home opener will be followed by a trip to Mansfield and a home game with Yeovil.
Lincoln won the National League title last term and they will be at Wycombe on day one before a first home game against Morecambe on 12 August.
Coventry, the 1987 FA Cup winners, have slipped into the bottom tier of the Football League for the first time since 1958-59 and the Sky Blues will be at home to Notts County in their opener.
Of the other relegated clubs from League One, Chesterfield are at home to Grimsby, Swindon and new boss David Flitcroft will travel to Carlisle, while Port Vale will be away at Crawley.
Mansfield are current favourites with Sky Bet for the League Two title and Steve Evans' side start out at Crewe, while Luton are also fancied to go well and welcome Yeovil to Kenilworth Road on day one.
Exeter were beaten in the play-off final last season and they will bid to build on that near-miss in 2017/18, starting with a home match against Cambridge.
