Vital Burnley have pulled off a bit of a coup.

The club have designated Vital Burnley as the official nominated fanzine for the 2010-11 npower Championship season. In effect this means we can publish the Fixtures for the 2010-11 season for a nominal fee of just £1 subject to DataCo’s approval.

Football DataCo Limited is a British company in the football industry that grants licences to third parties (such as newspapers and websites) allowing them to reproduce certain intellectual property (such as fixture lists and statistics) owned by the UK’s four professional football leagues namely Premier League, Football League,Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League.

Your editor in negotiations with the club managed to sort out a deal whereby fixtures would now be given to Clarets websites via a seasonal rota system as opposed to just one designated site and this season it will be our turn!

The 2010-11 Fixtures will be published this week on Thursday 17th June and you will for the first time see them in full on Vital Burnley.
