Burnley FC, has become the latest club to join the Lime Venue Portfolio, adding yet another elite sporting stadium to the group and further extending its regional and community-based venue options. The club were crowned champions of the Championship last season, and won promotion to the Premier League, taking the portfolio up to five stadiums in the top tier, for the coming 2023/24 campaign.
The arrival of Burnley FC will also expand the group’s reach in the North of England where it already has some of the most iconic attraction-based venues in the country. Recent research by Lime Venue Portfolio has shown a growing demand by business event organisers for ‘locality’ within venue selection. Turf Moor, is a much loved stadium with a rich history and heritage within the local community having been the home of Burnley FC for over 140 years.

“Turf Moor and Burnley FC have been a constant fixture within the local community for well over a century and we want our events business to reflect both our affinity with the people of East Lancashire, but also the increasingly global reach and profile of our football team,” commented Stuart Hunt, Burnley FC Director. “Guests can come and enjoy our fabulous new facilities knowing that they’ll receive a warm welcome and first-class service.”
