The eagerly anticipated Danske Bank Premiership fixtures can be revealed ahead of the start of the new campaign on Saturday 10 August.

The quest for the Gibson Cup starts once again for the twelve top-flight teams who will face each other three times before the ‘split’ after gameweek 33.

David Healy’s Linfield start the defence of their title against Institute at Windsor Park, whilst newly promoted Larne welcome Warrenpoint Town to Inver Park for the club’s first game back in the top division since 2008.

Fellow newcomers Carrick Rangers face a tough trip to Stephen Baxter’s Crusaders on the opening day, whilst there is a repeat of both last season’s Europa League playoff semi-finals as Coleraine face Cliftonville and Glenavon take on Glentoran.

Dungannon Swifts take on last year’s runners-up Ballymena United to kick off a busy week of action with three games in the first two weeks of the new campaign.
