Burnley College and Burnley Football Club are teaming up to create a day to remember for fans at Turf Moor – the “College Clarets Takeover 2024.”

Last year the College Clarets Takeover saw the town awash with specially-designed scarves and lots of smiling faces. This year even more are expected as the Clarets take on Brentford on Saturday, March 16th.

Meanwhile, students will be shadowing key matchday personnel at Turf Moor – from looking after guests in the hospitality suites to social media and photography.

Karen Buchanan, principal of Burnley College, said: ”“The iconic stage of Turf Moor is the perfect stage and the passionate fans such an amazing audience. Last year it was amazing – this year it’s going to be even better.

“Our partnership with Burnley Football Club is incredibly successful and has huge benefits for both the club and college – from sport and fitness to eSports.
