The EFL Championship club, Burnley Football Club have announced a new partnership with Classic Football Shirts. Following this new deal, the company will act as the club’s official shirt sponsor for the upcoming 2022/23 season.
As part of the association, the Clarets will don the Classic Football Shirts branding throughout the home games for the forthcoming Championship season as part of the ground-breaking partnership.
Classic Football Shirts was founded in 2006 by two friends, Matthew Dale and Doug Bierton, who communicated an adoration of kits. What apparently started as a spare room operation with only a couple of shirts became a go-to spot for fans looking to buy special and unusual shirts from teams all over the world, with the world’s largest collection housed in its Manchester headquarters.
Burnley FC’s 2022/23 home jersey is a tribute to the Clarets’ 1991/92 championship kit. This is an interesting prospect as this year’s initiative will be the first time in the history of the club that the men, women, and academy teams have chosen to share a front-of-shirt sponsor, highlighting another landmark for the team.
Burnley FC Chairman, Alan Pace, said, “I’m thrilled to continue our successful relationship with Classic Football Shirts and welcome them as official shirt sponsor for the season. We have been working together for some time now and I’m delighted to further develop this exciting collaboration. We all appreciate how important kits are to fans, Classic Football Shirts epitomises this. A football kit can ignite memories and take you back to a special moment in an instant, this is why we are delighted to make a nod to our history with this year’s retro style home kit and partnering with Classic Football Shirts is the perfect fit.
“The collaboration is perfectly timed in the year that we celebrate Burnley FC’s 140th anniversary and together, we have some fantastic events and unique activations planned for the season ahead to tell the story of and celebrate our great Club and the iconic kits that have been there along the way.”
