Based in the smallest town in the United Kingdom to take part in the Premier League, Burnley do not exactly have a list of prominent rivals in the top flight. Located in the north-west part of the country, the Clarets will look at the matches against Man City, Everton, Man United or Liverpool with particular interest.
However, their main rivals are not any of the existing EPL sides but rather Blackburn Rovers. Universally called the Cotton Mills Derby due to both towns’ cotton industry legacy, matches between these two sides would usually generate plenty of interest. The two clubs – and towns – are only 11 miles apart which makes this rivalry hotly contested from a fan’s point of view as well. Moreover, Burnley’s second main rivals are Rochdale, Morecambe and Bolton Wanderers.
The Clarets were founded back in 1882. Six years later, the club proudly became one of the original twelve clubs that founded the Football League. Having predominantly spent their time switching between the two top divisions of English football, Burnley experienced a lengthy period without any top-tier football – from 1976 to 2009.
Alongside from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Preston North End, Burnley are historically known to be one of the five teams to have won all four professional divisions of English professional football. Furthermore, they managed to win the league titles twice – in 1920/21 and 1959/60. On top of that, the Clarets are also proud FA Cup winners from 1914.
