Accrington promoted from League Two as Champions last season will be competing in League One for the first time in their history having spent the last 12 season in the fourth tier.
Despite having one of the smallest budgets in the EFL, Stanley were crowned League Two champions after a sensational 2017/18 campaign.
A magnificent run of 16 wins in 19 games between January and April culminated in an historic promotion to the third tier.
They won 29 matches in total and boasted the joint-best defensive record in the division, with just 46 goals conceded.
Defender Mark Hughes, winger Sean McConville and 25-goal top scorer and striker Billy Kee were each named in the PFA Team of the Year.
Manager John Coleman was named the 2017/18 League Two Manager of the Year after leading Accrington to the title.
Coleman has taken charge of almost 800 games over two spells with Stanley, winning four promotions.
He has also managed Rochdale, Southport and Sligo Rovers.
