Burnley Football Club have today announced a pre-season training trip to Évian-les-Bains in south eastern France, on the border with Switzerland, between Monday, July 11 and Saturday, July 16.

The Clarets spent pre-season at the same location last summer, and this year the six-day trip will culminate in a friendly game against Swiss side FC Stade Nyonnais on Friday, July 15.

This will take place at the club’s 7,200-seater Stade de Colovray in Nyon, on the north western tip of Lake Geneva (kick off 7.30pm local time).

Admission to the game in a seated stand will be 15 Swiss Francs (around £10), 10 Swiss Francs (around £7.10) for over-60s and no charge for U16s.

FC Stade Nyonnais, a semi-professional team, operate in the third tier of Swiss competition, in the same league as last summer’s friendly opponents, Étoile Carouge.

They lost their second tier status in 2012 following a divisional reshuffle that saw a total of six teams relegated in one season.

FC Stade Nyonnais will also host Sunderland and Sporting Lisbon as part of their respective pre-season campaigns.

The game becomes the fifth announced by the Clarets ahead of their return to the Premier League.

The full list of friendly games now reads as follows, with one more game provisionally scheduled to take place at Turf Moor around the weekend of 6th August.
