Burnley FC to host Sunderland in pre-season friendly
Burnley will entertain the Black Cats on Saturday, July 30 (kick-off 3pm) as a key part of their pre-season programme.
The fixture against Steve Bruce’s side will be the Clarets’ only warm-up game at home before the new Championship season kicks off for Eddie Howe’s men a week later.
Sunderland’s last visit to Turf Moor brought them a 3-1 defeat in September, 2009 as two goals from David Nugent and a Graham Alexander penalty gave the Clarets three Premier League points.
Admission prices and ticket details for the Sunderland game and further pre-season fixtures will be announced at a later date.
