The central attraction of the day will be an open training session for Eddie Howe’s first-team squad on the pitch as they fine-tune their preparations for the new campaign which starts with a Capital Cup clash at Port Vale on Tuesday, August 14.

Supporters will get the chance to watch the manager put his players through their paces before an opportunity for photos and autographs with the Clarets’ playing staff.

Further entertainment will also be on offer in and around the ground with times and more details to be announced shortly.
