On Thursday, 20 June 2019, the EFL League One fixtures were announced.

Bury were expelled from the English Football League on 27 August 2019 after failing to satisfy the criteria provided within their notice of withdrawal from the EFL, by a deadline of 5PM BST on this date. The club failed to fulfil any of their League One fixtures in 2019-20 due to their financial crisis, and consequently upon their expulsion, League One will consist of 23 teams for the upcoming season, with three teams being relegated instead of the usual four.
