Originally founded as a rugby club, in 1882 the club switched codes and became one of the founding members of the football league in 1888. Counting Prince Charles and Alastair Campbell among its fans, Burnley FC has claimed every top domestic honour with the exception of the League Cup. The club recently carried out improvement works to its stadium and redeveloped its training ground, hoping to help attract talented players. The club is benefitting from a return to the Premier League and increased broadcast revenue. Under chairman Mike Garlick, 54, sales tripled to £120m in 2017.
