A Century of Claret and Blue: A Special Exhibition

Burnley Football Club is gearing up for special VIP launch of the new replica kit to celebrate 100 years of Claret and Blue.

A century ago, the club took the historic decision to change the club colours to those now known and recognised worldwide.

And as we prepare to unveil the new home kit to be worn in the 2010/11 campaign, the club is delighted and proud to announce a unique exhibition.

For the first time, all 34 claret and blue shirts worn by Burnley Football Club over the past 100 years will be housed in one exhibition, open to the general public.

Naturally, the star of the show will be the new Puma-branded home shirt, bearing the club's new sponsors, Fun88 com.

And for one month, commencing Saturday, April 3, this exhibition is the ONLY place supporters will be able to see the centenary shirt in all its claret and blue glory!

 But this one-off exhibition, located in the Long Gallery at Towneley Hall, will also house every other notable shirt from the club's illustrious past.A Century of Claret and Blue: A Special Exhibition

A reproduction of the first ever shirt worn by the club following the change from green to claret and blue in 1910 is at the heart of the collection, which also houses a reproduction of the 1914 FA Cup final shirt worn at Crystal Palace in the 1-0 victory over Liverpool - the only time the club has lifted the most famous trophy in English football.

The famous shirt worn when the Clarets last lifted the First Division title in 1960 will be proudly displayed, along with Brian Miller's priceless shirt from the 1962 FA Cup final v Spurs.

In addition to Miller's shirt, former players Jim Thomson, Andy Farrell and Ashley Hoskin have donated notable shirts from their eras.

Jim's shirt bears the old swirly 'BFC' crest from the 1969-75 era, while Andy has agreed to display the shirt worn in the 1988 Sherpa Van Trophy final at Wembley.A Century of Claret and Blue: A Special Exhibition

And the landmark moment Burnley survived becoming the first team ever to be relegated out of the Football League is commemorated by Hoskin's shirt, worn in the famous Orient game at Turf Moor in May 1987.

The exhibition, in the Long Gallery at Towneley Hall, Burnley, is FREE to the general public (see below) from 12pm on Saturday, April 3 to Friday, April 30.

A special souvenir programme costing £5, featuring glossy photographs of all the shirts and a short biography of each, will also be available to accompany the exhibition. This booklet will also be sold in the club shop from Saturday, April 3.

Exhibition Opening Times (including Easter)
12pm-5pm daily (Closed Fridays)

be honest now... if that was the shirt would going out and buying it be the first thing on your mind or would it be that it looks identical to last seasons kit?
