The SPFL fixtures for the three lower divisions were unveiled today, with City handed an away trip to Stair Park for their first game on Saturday, October 17.

Stranraer were bottom of League 1 when last season's campaign ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic, and were subsequently relegated after an SPFL resolution to finish the campaign was voted through.

The League 2 term, along with League 1 and the Championship, will see each club play 27 fixtures instead of 36, meeting each other club three times.

After Stranraer, City play their first home game against Brechin City a week later.

They will also host the Angus outfit in their final fixture of the shortened campaign on May 1.

City will have the benefit of playing 14 home matches and just 13 away, which comes down to the luck thrown up by the fixture programme.
