Burnley are only days away from their first Championship match of the campaign as they open the season with a match against Huddersfield Town.
Ahead of the clash, the Clarets have confirmed season ticket sales have surpassed 14,000 - one of club’s highest tallies in recent years and higher than all of their seven previous campaigns in the second tier.
Friday’s match will be Vincent Kompany’s first competitive fixture as Burnley boss following pre-season matches against Rochdale, Wolves and Shrewsbury.
The Lancashire club only met the Terriers back in January where they were beaten 2-1 at Turf Moor in the FA Cup third round.
