Sky Bet League One
Sunderland will compete in the third tier for the first time in 30 years following their relegation from the Championship last season, and they were joined by Burton and Barnsley, both of whom last competed in League One in 2016.
Accrington, meanwhile, are playing in League One for the first time in the club's history following their superb campaign where they finished as League Two champions, while Luton, Wycombe and Coventry were also promoted.
Will Sunderland bounce back? Will Accrington be able to survive? Check out Ali and George's League One predictions in the video above!
Sky Bet League Two
Bury, Oldham, Northampton and MK Dons will all be competing in the lowest tier of the professional game having been relegated from League One last season.
Macclesfield and Tranmere will join them having won promotion from the National League last season. For Macclesfield it's a first return to the Football League in six years, while Tranmere ended a three-year spell away from League Two.
