History and description

In 1883, Burnley moved to Turf Moor and played their first match there against Rawtenstall. At that point, the stadium was just a pitch next to a cricket ground. A first grandstand was constructed one year later, and soon after a terrace that could hold about 5,000 people. The rest of the stadium consisted of a natural mound on which spectators could stand.

Today, the stands can only hold around 30,000 people each. Two covered stands built in 1908 were able to hold more than 50,000 spectators each. However, today the stands can only hold around 30,000 people each.

Turf Moor recorded its highest attendance in 1924, when 54,755 people attended an FA Cup match between Burnley and Huddersfield Town.

This structure, which runs the entire length of the pitch, allowed spectators to watch the game from a great height.

In 1969, the Cricket Field Stand was built at Turf Moor. It was one of the first examples of a modern stand, and also contained the dressing rooms, which made Turf Moor one of the few grounds in the football league with the dressing rooms behind the goal.

The construction of the Bee Hole End terrace and Bob Lord Stand completed the ground in 1974.

The stadium remained practically untouched until in 1994 the decision was made to redevelop the ground. First, the Longside was demolished and replaced with a new stand, and a year later, the Bee Hole End suffered a similar fate.

Since 2007, Burnley have planned to replace the old and dilapidated Cricket Field Stand, but the crisis prevented their execution.

How to get to Turf Moor

Turf Moor is east of Burnley town centre. The walk from the railway station takes about 15 minutes, and the bus station is located even closer. Most direct trains connect Manchester Victoria with Burnley Manchester Road station. Trains leave every hour on Saturdays for the 50-minute journey. There are also direct trains from other cities, like Leeds, Bradford, Preston, and Blackburn.

Address: Harry Potts Way, Burnley, BB10 4BX

Eat, drink, and sleep near Turf Moor

Turf Moor is located in a residential neighbourhood. You may find some fast food and the odd pub on the way to the stadium, but there are more options for eating and drinking in Burnley's town centre. There are not many hotels in Burnley when traveling for the match as you are more likely to stay in and out of the town. However, if you must stay in the town, the Rosehill House and Holiday Inn Express are decent options. Though neither is particularly near Turf Moor.

Burnley Tickets

Tickets for Burnley games can be purchased online, by phone, or at the ticket office at the stadium. Since Burnley's promotion to the Premier League, their attendances have increased significantly. However, for most matches tickets are readily available in advance. It is advised to book well in advance for high-profile matches though.

The ticket prices range from £30.00 for a seat behind the goal or lower side to £40.00 for the main stand.
