Burnley Football Club can confirm an agreement has been reached with Liverpool Football Club to reverse their two Premier League games for the 2016/17 season.
Having given this our full consideration, with the full involvement and agreement of manager Sean Dyche, and having secured benefits to the club, we have granted permission for a reversal of the fixtures.
Burnley Football Club fully appreciate this fixture swap may cause some inconvenience to a number of supporters, for which we apologise.
However, we would like reiterate that following the unusual nature of this particular set of circumstances, fixtures are always subject to change.
The first match, originally scheduled for Anfield on Saturday, August 20, 2016, will now take place at Turf Moor (3pm kick off).
The return meeting of the two clubs is scheduled to take place at Anfield on Sunday, 12 March, 2017 (4pm KO).
However, the precise date and kick-off time of this game, as with all Premier League games, still remains subject to TV scheduling.
