Cheltenham are yet to defeat MK Dons, who lost to Huddersfield Town in last season's play-off semi-finals, in three previous attempts and it is another stern early test for Mark Yates' men.
The full list of League Two fixtures for their 14th season in the Football League will be released on Monday.
Meanwhile, Cheltenham have confirmed a home friendly against Championship club Burnley on Saturday, August 4.
Former Robins defender Michael Duff, arguably the finest player to progress through the club's youth system, is among those who will be on show for the Clarets.
Further away warm-up matches against non-League opposition are expected to be announced shortly.
