A designated “vape” friendly area will be trialled at Turf Moor this weekend during Burnley’s game against Blackburn.
In conjunction with club sponsors Totally Wicked, the use of e-cigarettes will be permitted throughout the entire Bob Lord Stand concourse.
Burnley Football Club will also have e-cigarettes on sale within the kiosks of the stand, and in the Clarets Store.
If the trial is successful, the aim is then to extend it to other areas of the stadium for forthcoming games.
This is the first stage of Burnley FC’s implementation of an e-cigarette policy at the ground and we believe this to be the first formal e-cigarette policy implemented by a football club.
