Blues to face Burton Albion in pre-season 

Blues will visit Burton Albion during their pre-season schedule.

The meeting with the Brewers is the first fixture announced as part of the team’s preparations ahead of the 2022/23 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

This will take place at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday 16th July, kick-off 2pm.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side finished 16th in Sky Bet League One last term and will face Blues for the first time since the pair met in April 2018 for a second-tier clash that ended 1-1.

On that occasion, Lloyd Dyer opened the scoring before Lukas Jutkiewicz' late equaliser saw the spoils shared at St. Andrew's.

Ticket details for the match will be confirmed in due course.

Confirmed pre-season dates:

  • Players return for testing, Monday 20 June
  • Burton Albion v Blues, Saturday 16th July, kick-off 2pm
