Parma will be final pre-season opponents
Burnley have confirmed that the second home game in pre-season will be against Italian club Parma who ended last season in 14th place in Serie A.
It’s been a big climb back for them following serious financial problems. Those problems started in 2003 and the club was in controlled administration until 2007. Worse still, they were declared bankrupt in 2015 and were re-founded and played in Serie D.
Now called SSD Parma Calcio and from that date in 2015 they went on a remarkable run that saw them win three successive promotions to return to the top division last season.
The game will be played at Turf Moor on Saturday 3rd August with a 3 p.m. kick off.Share this page :
