Turf Moor, Burnley
Turf Moor stadium is home to Burnley. An all-seater capacity of 21,401.
A ground with tradition. Working Class, Northern, No Nonsense.
My last visit was in August 2014. Burnley v Manchester United. An early kick off meant an early start in the morning. A debut for our record signing Di Maria should have keep me on my toes but the 0-0 draw didn't do much to keep me awake.
Away supporters are put behind the goal in the David Fishwick Stand. Excellent views, but it can take time to get into the stadium and don't expect much in the way of facilities. Toilets were very old school.

My first visit to Turf Moor on Tuesday 26th 0ctober 2004 wasn`t a very happy one. I went to watch Villa play Burnley in the Carling Cup. Villa lost embarassingly 3-1 to the lower division side.
The one good thing about it for me was the stand that we sat in, it wasn`t architecturally spectacular or anything, just basic but it was good to get back to the old style stadium with wooden seats. Just like the old days before the sanitized, identikit stadiums started to be built.
Equipment: To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.
