Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley was a founding team in the Football League in 1888. They achieved great success by winning the FA Cup in 1914. The owners of the club have been striving to regain that level of success at Turf Moor ever since.
In the 1913/1914 FA Cup final, Burnley emerged victorious over Liverpool, which is considered the club’s most notable accomplishment. The Clarets ended the 2015/2016 Championship season as the top-ranked team and have earned a spot in the 2016/2017 English Premier League.
Burnley’s home matches are held at Turf Moor with a maximum capacity of 21,401. The team has secured two Community Shield victories in 1960 and 1973, but has yet to win the Premier League title. The color claret is prominent in their home jerseys.
