Burnley supporters are being given the chance to get their hands on the famous claret and blue wooded seats from Turf Moor's Cricket Field Stand.
In position since the stand opened in 1969, the seats have witnessed the club’s historic journey from the top-flight of English football and back again.
Burnley FC in the Community will be holding the sale in the Bob Lord concourse tomorrow and Friday between 10am - 2pm, with the seats available in the concourse with entrance via Harry Potts Way through gate B2.
