In their first game back in the second tier for six years, the Clarets face a Roses derby on the opening weekend of the season against the side who knocked them out of the FA Cup in the third round at Turf Moor last season, and went on to finish third in the Championship, losing at Wembley 1-0 to Nottingham Forest.

Vincent Kompany’s first home game will be against another side beaten in the play-offs, at the semi-final stage, in Luton Town, on Saturday, August 6th, before a trip to Watford – relegated with Burnley from the Premier League – on Saturday, August 13th.

Two home games follow against Hull City, on Tuesday, August 16th, and the first of six Lancashire derbies against Blackpool on Saturday, August 20th, before the Clarets enter the Carabao Cup at the second round stage the following midweek.
