About Burnley

Burnley Football Club is an English association football club based in Burnley, Lancashire, which competes in the EFL Championship, the second tier of English football, following relegation from the 2021–22 Premier League. Founded on May 18, 1882, it was one of the first to turn professional (in 1883) and subsequently lobbied the Football Association to allow player payments.

The club entered the FA Cup for the first time in 1885–86 and was one of the 12 founder members of the Football League in 1888–89. From the 1950s to the 1970s, under the chairmanship of Bob Lord, the club became famous for its youth policy and scouting system and was one of the first to set up a purpose-built training ground.

Burnley has been champions of England twice, in 1920-21 and 1959-60, won the FA Cup once, in 1913-14, and won the FA Charity Shield twice, in 1960 and 1973. They have been runners-up in the First Division twice, in 1919–20 and 1961–62, and FA Cup runners-up twice, in 1946–47 and 1961–62.

Burnley is one of five teams to have won all four professional divisions in English soccer, along with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Preston North End, Sheffield United and Portsmouth. When the team won the 1959-1960 football league, the city of Burnley, population 80,000, became one of the smallest to have a top English champion.

The team has played home games at Turf Moor since 1883 after moving from their original premises in Calder Vale. The club colours of burgundy and blue were adopted ahead of the 1910-11 season in tribute to then Football League champions Aston Villa. The club is nicknamed “the Clarets” due to the dominant colour of their home jerseys. Burnley’s current emblem is based on the city’s coat of arms. The club has a long-standing rivalry with Blackburn Rovers, with whom it competes in the East Lancashire Derby.

Burnley Home Stadium

The team have played their home games at Turf Moor since February 1883, which replaced their original premises at Calder Vale. The Turf Moor site has been used for the sport since at least 1843 when Burnley Cricket Club moved to the area. In 1883, Burnley was invited to a field adjacent to the cricket ground. Both clubs have remained there ever since, with only Lancashire rivals Preston North End continuously occupying their home ground, Deepdale, for longer.

Turf Moor consists of four stands: the North Stand (formerly Longside), Jimmy McIlroy Stand (formerly Bee Hole End), Bob Lord Stand and the Cricket Field Stand for home and away fans. The current capacity is 21,944, all seated. The Turf Moor course was uneven until 1974, when the pitch was raised to minimize it.

In the mid-1990s, the ground was further redeveloped when all-seater bleachers replaced the Longside and Bee Hole End terraces due to the Taylor Report. In 2019, the club built two corner grandstands for disabled home fans between the Jimmy McIlroy and the North and Bob Lord stands to comply with the Accessible Stadium Guide standards.

Burnley Kit

Combining the club’s traditional colours, the Umbro Burnley 22-23 Shirt is mainly burgundy with light blue sleeves. The crew neck and sleeve cuffs are burgundies, while the sponsor logos on the chest are white.

The design is a celebration of the classic kit from the 1991-92 season in which the Clarets won the Division Four title. A striking pixelated graphic pattern in different shades of red and blue covers the entire front of the Umbro Burnley 2023/24 Home Shirt.

Burnley Football Club also announced that Classic Football Shirts would be the club’s Official Shirt Sponsor for the 2023/24 season.
