Burnley learn Premier League Cup opponents
Burnley have been drawn in a group with Newcastle United, Swansea City and Colchester United in this season’s Premier League Cup.
With us having moved up to EPPP Category 2, this season will see us go straight into the group stage of the Premier League Cup whereas last season we faced preliminary games against Bournemouth and Watford before reaching the groups.
We are one of 28 Category 1 and 2 clubs already in place with the final four to come from the preliminary games shown below.
The competition will, added to our 30 league games, give us another six competitive fixtures for the under-23 team with us now set to play Newcastle, Swansea and Colchester home and away.
