The Clarets

Formed in 1882, Burnley Football Club was one of the twelve founding members of the Football League, which began in 1888. It has been a long and exciting journey since then, with the club securing every major domestic honour, except the League Cup.

Turf Moor has been Burnley's home ground since 1883. Having been redeveloped many times since its formation, it has always remained home - making it one of the longest continuously used grounds in English professional football.

Nicknamed the Clarets, Burnley FC have a loyal army of fans who have supported the club throughout the highs and the lows of the past 140 years.

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.

Presence with purpose

The partnership allows us to connect with Burnley fans - and help them with their motoring needs too!

The Vertu Motors logo will sit proudly on the back of the club's three shirts for the current season. We are also involved in various initiatives such as Papa John's FanZone activities, player appearances, and various hospitality opportunities.

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.

"Vertu are well known for their quality service and commitment to the community, which were major driving forces in our decision to team up. It's been great to welcome them into the Clarets family and I'm looking forward to building a strong partnership together."
