The full fixtures for the 2013-14 new season will of course be announced tomorrow (Wednesday 19th June) but we already know that our opening game will be against Bolton Wanderers at Turf Moor on a date and kick-off tme to be confirmed. So yes, it is a repeat of the opening fixture from last season although of course this time Owen Coyle will be absent and the emotion will not be as high!
It has however been recognised as a special match to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Football League's first season in 1888-89 and is one of a number of special fixtures to be played on the opening weekend of the 2013/14 campaign. Turf Moor is one of only three grounds used in the 1888/89 league season still in existence today.
Six matches, two from each division will feature a number of the founder members of the world's original league football competition, as well as other pairings of historical significance.
Burnley v Bolton Wanderers
Derby County v Blackburn Rovers
Preston North End v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Sheffield United v Notts County
Newport County v Accrington Stanley
Rochdale v Hartlepool United
In announcing the 125th Anniversary fixtures, Football League Chairman Greg Clarke said:
"For 125 years, Football League clubs have delivered a compelling spectacle, week after week. In the process, attracting a total audience of more than 2.2 billion people and building indelible relationships with their local communities.
"Our clubs and their supporters are the heartbeat of the domestic game, giving English league football a breadth and popularity that is unrivalled anywhere in the world.
"We look forward to celebrating 125 years of incredible matches, unforgettable moments and intense footballing rivalry."
All the remaining 2013/14 Football League fixture will be announced at 9.00am tomorrow.
