Burnley Football Club can confirm Oak Furniture Land as the new first team shirt sponsor.

The British-owned furniture brand, founded by Burnley fan Jason Bannister, will have their name on all home shirts throughout the 2015/16 season.

SofaStore.com, Oak Furniture Land’s dedicated sofa brand, will appear on the away shirts.

Burnley-born Mr Bannister, who as a youngster was a ball boy at Turf Moor, said: “I’m a lifelong fan of Burnley Football Club and grew up around the corner from the stadium.

“Having my company’s name on the shirts is a proud moment and the fulfilment of a dream.

“We used to sponsor the back of the shirt and as Sean would say, now ‘we go again’ and sponsor the front.”

Oak Furniture Land, the UK’s fastest growing furniture company, is a privately-owned British designer, manufacturer and retailer of solid hardwood furniture.

The company has enjoyed phenomenal growth since it started out in 2004. Year-on-year it has grown by over 40% and now employs 1,000 people across the UK.

The Burnley showroom opened in 2012 and in 2014 the company launched SofaStore.com, a major new quality sofa brand.

Anthony Fairclough, Head of Commercial Affairs at Burnley Football Club, added: “We welcome Oak Furniture Land and the renewal of our partnership.

“We have enjoyed a great working relationship with the company for some time now. We are proud to have them as our Principal Partner and look forward to an exciting season with them in the Championship.”

Burnley fans will get the chance to see the Oak Furniture Land branding on the new 2015/16 home shirt when it is revealed later this month.
