Guardiola, who replaces Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, will entertain Sunderland on the weekend of August 13, 2016.
Guardiola will not have to wait long to face old adversary Jose Mourinho either with the first of the Manchester derbies to take place at Old Trafford on September 10, 2016.
City will host their Manchester rivals in the return fixture on February 25, 2017.
Aside from the visit of defending champions Leicester on the penultimate weekend of the season, City have a fairly comfortable looking run-in to the campaign with contests against West Brom (h), Middlesbrough (a), Crystal Palace (h) and Watford away on the final day.
