Liverpool switch opening home fixture


Liverpool's opening Premier League home match against Burnley has been switched to Turf Moor.

The Reds had been scheduled to host Burnley at Anfield on Saturday, August 20, but both clubs have agreed to reverse the fixture due to the ongoing redevelopment of the main stand.

When the redevelopment is complete the capacity of the Main Stand will increase to 20,000, which will see the overall capacity climb from 45,522 to 54,000 to make it the fifth biggest stadium in the Premier League.

While the expansion is due to be ready for the start of the Premier League season, officials feel it is necessary to have extra time in the event that the project runs over.

Liverpool's first home fixture will now be against defending Premier League champions Leicester on September 10 with Burnley set to travel to Anfield on March 12.
