Burnley FC

Their nickname is The Clarets. Interestingly, this club has one of the largest fan bases in England in relation to the total population of the place they come from. That's the eponymous town of Burnley in Lancashire. We can get a good idea of this from the figures, with an average attendance per game of 20,000 people, in a city that has a population of around 70,000. It is certainly worth noting that the club's most famous supporter is Prince Charles. Former Libyan dictator Gaddafi was also a fan of the team.

The home stadium is Turf Moor with a capacity of 21,944 spectators. Their biggest rivals are Blackburn Rovers, with whom they have the longest rivalry as they are from the same area. The matches between the two are known as the East Lancashire Derby. Then Bolton Wanderers, Morecambe and Rochdale can also be described as rivals. The club colours are claret and blue.

Club achievements

The club was founded in 1882. They were league champions twice in 1921 and 1960. They were also FA Cup winners in 1914. It is worth mentioning that this club is one of only five clubs on the English football scene to have ever won in all four professional divisions of English football.

The club has also enjoyed success in Europe. The biggest one was in 1961, when as former English league champions they reached the quarter-finals of the European Champions Cup, now known as the UEFA Champions League.

Weaker years, ups and downs

The club experienced its weakest years between 1976 and 2009, when it was long absent from the elite. Even in the late 1980s and early 1990s, it was only in the lowest competition. Between 2000 and 2009, the club was in the second highest competition, then reached the Premier League. However, he lasted only one season there, followed by relegation. The next promotion was in the 2013/14 season and again the club did not last long. The last time the club made it to the Premier League was in the 2016/17 season and it has been there ever since.
