Where does the Burnley team play?

Turf Moor is a football stadium in Burnley, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom. It is the home of Burnley FC, who have played there since 1883.

It is located on Harry Potts Way in Burnley and has a capacity of 22,546. The four main stands are: James Hargreaves Stand, Jimmy McIlroy Stand, Bob Lord Stand and Cricket Field Stand.

The first match was between Burnley and Rawtenstall in 1883, shortly after the club moved from its original site in Calder Vale. After Deepdale and Bramall Lane, it is one of the oldest football stadiums still in use in the UK.

The attendance record at Turf Moor was set in 1924 when Burnley took on Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup and 54,755 spectators were present.

Burnley’s new chairman Brendan Flood has stated that the ground is earmarked for redevelopment and plans were made public on 24 July 2007. It is a major project that will cost £20 million. The plans, which include redevelopment of the Cricket Field stand and relocation of the entrance tunnel from the changing rooms to the pitch, have been put on hold until the financial situation improves. With a second expansion of Bob Lord’s Stand following the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2009, for the first time since 1976, Turf Moor’s capacity is expected to total 28,000.
