Burnley FC have won the Best Kit Design Award for their away kit at the 2007 'Football League Awards’ incorporating ‘FourFourTwo's Top 50 Football League Players'.

The Clarets received the award, which was sponsored by Nivea for Men Weekend Wonders, at a gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday, 4th March 2007.

The Burnley away kit was chosen for it’s good use of colour and the innovative use of new technical fabrics, the attention to detail and the use of the Claret chest band to create a striking design. The other clubs that were short-listed for the award were: Huddersfield Town, Hull City, Norwich City, Milton Keynes Dons and Mansfield Town.

Commenting on the award, Chief Executive Dave Edmundson said:
"I'm delighted to have got this award - the kit's been a bit of a lucky omen for us. The manager had some input into it as did our kit suppliers Errea, who worked with us throughout the kit design and they've been a fantastic help. Steve Cotterill wanted something very distinctive and the players certainly feel that the kit is emblematic. It’s also been lucky because we’ve done well away from home this season.."

Fabrizio Taddei, Sales Director of Errea added:
"It's fantastic news. We always knew we had a good design but to be voted the best of all the clubs in the Football League is magnificent. We look forward to continuing our healthy relationship with the club and producing more successful designs."

In the early years, various designs and colours were used by the Burnley club. The first kit was a white shirt with white shorts. Other early kits included a dark blue shirt with dark blue shorts. Other shirt designs were white with a blue sash, light blue and white stripes and claret and amber stripes. For much of the 1890s a combination of black with amber stripes was used, although the club wore a shirt with pink and white stripes during the 1894-95 season. Between 1897 and 1900 the club used a plain red shirt. From 1900 until 1910 the club changed to an all green shirt with white shorts. In 1910 it was decided to adopt the claret and blue of the football league champions Aston Villa. As history shows, this move had a positive effect.
