Famous faces who follow Burnley Football Club from the NFL, politics, entertainment and the Catholic Church

For a small town football club, Burnley has always punched above its weight – even becoming champions of England in 1920-21 and in 1959-60 – so it’s not surprising the Turf Moor outfit has also attracted something of a celebrity following over the years.

To help celebrate the Clarets gaining promotion this season back to the Premier League we thought it would be fitting to have a look at some of those celebrity fans from the newest – NFL legend JJ Watt – to some of the oldest and perhaps most unlikely.

Indeed, the regal and religious count among those fans including our new King Charles III and Roman Catholic Cardinal, Wifrid Fox Napier OFM.

Take a look.
