Turf Moor (capacity 22,546)
Turf Moor has been home to Burnley since 1883, which is one of the longest ground occupations in country. In the mid 1990’s, the James Hargreaves and Jimmy McIlroy stands were modernised, which means that half the stadium looks newer than the other half.
It was one of the last remaining stadiums in the country to house the player’s tunnel and changing rooms behind the goal, but this was covered with seating in time for the 2014/15 season. Turf Moor was also the first football stadium in the country to be visited by royalty when Prince Albert Victor opened a new hospital in Burnley in 1886.
Away fans visiting Turf Moor are located in part of the Barnfield Construction Stand, with a typical allocation of around 2,500.
