The Iron will host Doncaster Rovers and Manchester City's Under-21s in the Papa John's Trophy, and will travel to face Rotherham United in the Group Stage, it has been confirmed.
The first fixture on the schedule will see United welcome City to the Sands Venue Stadium for the third season in a row on Tuesday, August 24th.
That match has been arranged in accordance with the invited side's schedule, but should the Iron progress to Round Two of the Carabao Cup, that fixture will take preference, meaning the encounter against the Citizens would be arranged. A back-up date is yet to be agreed.
Scunthorpe will then travel to the New York Stadium for their second encounter, facing Rotherham United on Tuesday, October 5th before entertaining Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday, November 9th. All three matches are scheduled to kick-off at 7pm.
Tuesday, August 24, 2021 – Iron v Manchester City Under-21s
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 – Rotherham United v Iron
Tuesday, November 9, 2021 – Iron v Doncaster Rovers
