Burnley Profile

Burnley is an established, top-flight club in English football who have endured surprise successes since their return to the Premier League. Founded in 1882, the club is known as ‘The Clarets’ – reflected in their home kit – and have made their home ground, Turf Moor, an extremely difficult place for travelling teams to accumulate points from. The brand of football may not be on par with the likes of Manchester City or Liverpool, but Burnley have formulated success in different forms; it frustrates the opposition and is extremely effective.

Over the years, Burnley fans have been surprised with individual talent that has arrived at Turf Moor. The Clarets faithful were ecstatic when the club gained promotion back to the top-flight in 2016; going on a European tour two years later certainly wasn’t expected and that’s the type of shocks this football club can produce.

The club has endured some success in their history. Burnley are three-time winners of the second tier of English football – now known as the Championship – and have twice been crowned Champions of England. The Clarets have also won the FA Cup once in their history, dating back to the 1913/14 campaign and the Burnley fans of today will be hoping to add to that in the coming years. However, they have never won the League Cup but have won the FA Charity Shield on one occasion.

Despite a lack of silverware in recent seasons, Burnley fans have a great deal to be proud of. Finishing seventh in the 2017/18 Premier League campaign and qualifying for Europe was never expected for any football fans, let alone the Clarets faithful. The club has cemented their position in the top-flight of English football and now they will be hoping to add to their trophy collection.
