Formed in 1882, Burnley became founder members of the Football League in 1888.

They had moved to Turf Moor in 1883 so have had only one home venue throughout their entire league existence.

A market town in Lancashire, Burnley holds the title of the smallest town to have supported England?s champion team.

The population was around 100,000 when the Clarets clinched the first of their two titles in 1920-21.

That campaign included a record 30-game unbeaten run that wasn?t surpassed in the top division until Arsenal?s Invincibles in 2003-04.

Masterminded by manager Harry Potts, Burnley won the league title again in 1959-60 when the town?s population had fallen to around 80,000.

They entered the European Cup the following season and reached the quarter-finals.

Burnley won the FA Cup in 1914 when the beat Liverpool in the Final at Crystal Palace.

Along with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Preston North End, they are one of three clubs to have won all four divisions of English football but they came within one game of losing their league status in 1987.

After a 33 year absence, the Clarets returned to the top tier in 2009 when they were promoted to the Premier League for the first time.
