UEFA has revealed the full list of fixtures and kick-off times for the Republic of Ireland's autumn slate of games in the UEFA Nations League. 

As expected, Stephen Kenny's reign will begin away to Bulgaria on Thursday September 3.

Finland will then visit the Aviva Stadium on Sunday September 6.

Ireland's campaign resumes with Wales travelling to Dublin for a Sunday October 11 encounter. That game comes three days after the UEFA Euro 2020 playoff with Slovakia.

Kenny told FAI TV earlier this month that scouting of their Nations League opponents had already begun during lockdown.

"We got a good look at Bulgaria - all their games in the campaign - and Finland, and Wales", the manager told Cathal Dervan.

The former Dundalk boss says he's been conducting video analysis along with his assistants, Keith Andrews, Damien Duff and Ruaidhri Higgins.

"It's been a good opportunity, we've maximised the opportunity to try and get as much information as we can."

Kenny's charges will be away to Finland on October 14.

Ireland will be away to Wales on Sunday November 15.

Should Ireland beat Slovakia, then a playoff final against either Bosnia-Herzegovina or Northern Ireland will be three days prior.

Kenny's final home game of the year will be against Bulgaria on Wednesday November 18.

UEFA Nations League B4 fixtures:

Thursday September 3
Bulgaria v Republic of Ireland, 7.45pm
Finland v Wales, 7.45pm
