The Clarets

Founded in 1882, Burnley was one of the twelve founding members of the English Football League in 1888. Twice champions of England and winners of the FA Cup, the team held the record for the longest unbeaten record in the league for more than 80 years and is one of a handful of teams to have won all four professional divisions.

Burnley�s Turf Moor stadium is one the oldest in the professional game having been the team�s home since 1883, with the modern day ground having a capacity of almost 22,000 and featuring a raft of impressive facilities. Known as the Clarets in deference to its iconic shirt, Burnley can count on the support of a loyal army of fans who have supported the club through the various highs and lows since the first ball was kicked.

Supporting Clarets in the community

With dealerships across the North West, the partnership between Vertu Motors and Burnley FC is an excellent opportunity to utilise the power of football to connect with local communities.

We understand how much the football club means to the people of Burnley, so we are excited to work together to help inspire change in communities that need support.

A winning partnership

"Having been a fan of Burnley Football Club for many years, I am delighted that Vertu Motors has become an official partner. Vertu Motors already has a good local presence in the surrounding area, and we are pleased to continue increasing awareness of our brand and what it has to offer."

Robert Forrester
Chief Executive, Vertu Motors

"It's fantastic to have Vertu Motors onboard as an official partner of Burnley Football Club. With a Vertu Motors Land Rover dealership in nearby Nelson, plus further locations nearby, it was important for us to partner with businesses within the local community.
