Burnley FC launch their 2011 FA Cup campaign at Turf Moor on Saturday and you can be there at a special cut-price rate!

Tickets for the third-round tie against League Two promotion-chasers Port Vale are still on sale priced £15 for adults, £10 for over-65s, 16s-18s and full-time students, and £5 for under-16s.

Cash turnstiles will be open in the North Stand upper tier, the East Stand lower tier and the Bob Lord stands for adults only. Concession tickets must be bought from the ticket office.

Port Vale fans have already snapped up 2,000 tickets for the match, which will be the first in charge for new boss Jim Gannon.

Former Stockport County manager Gannon was appointed by Vale on an 18-month contract on Thursday morning following Micky Adams’ recent move to Sheffield United.

Vale earned their first trip to Turf Moor since 1995 with wins over Dartford in round one and Accrington Stanley in round two.

The Clarets have faced the Potteries club three times before in the FA Cup with Burnley’s only win coming way back in 1898.

In 1980, Vale knocked the Clarets out in a second-round replay and in 1977 the Clarets were beaten 2-1 at Vale Park in a fourth-round tie.
