The Bantams can now confirm their first pre-season friendly of the summer, an exciting home fixture against Premier League newcomers Burnley.

Phil Parkinson's men will entertain the Clarets at the Coral Windows Stadium on Saturday 23 July 2016 - kick off 3:00pm.

Ticket details and stand configuration information for this summer fixture will follow in due course.

The July friendly will be City's fourth pre-season fixture with the Lancashire side in eight years. 

The Bantams hosted Burnley at Valley Parade in 2008 and 2009 before travelling to Turf Moor for a friendly on the eve of last season.

Burnley will be back among the country's elite once again next season after securing promotion back into the Premiership in early May.

Sean Dyche's men actually secured the Championship title on the final day of the regular season just a year on from their relegation out of the Premier League at the end of the 2014/2015 campaign.

In total, Burnley have been promoted up into the top flight three times in the last seven years.
