Burnley Football Club is a professional association football club based in Burnley, Lancashire, England. Founded on 18 May 1882, the team originally played only friendly matches until they entered the FA Cup for the first time in 1885–86.
Burnley have been champions of England twice, in 1920–21 and 1959–60, have won the FA Cup once, in 1914 (1–0 v Liverpool), and have won the Community Shield twice, in 1960 and 1973. The Clarets also reached the 1961 quarter-finals of the European Cup. They are one of only five teams to have won all top four professional divisions of English football.
In the 1920–21 campaign, Burnley were crowned champions of England for the first time. During that season the team embarked on a 30-match unbeaten run, which remained an English record until it was beaten by Arsenal who went undefeated throughout the 2003–04 campaign. Burnley attained a second league championship in 1959–60 with a team consisting of mostly youth players, winning the title with a last-day victory over Manchester City.
In 1979–80, Burnley were relegated to the Third Division (now League One) — the first time in their history they had played in the third tier of English football. Five years later, the team competed in the Fourth Division (now League Two) for the first time following another relegation, and on 9 May 1987 only a 2–1 home win against Orient saved Burnley from relegation to the Football Conference and a possible dissolution. Burnley won promotion in 1991–92 (as champions) to the third tier and again in 1999–2000 (as runners–up) to the second tier, before being promoted to the Premier League in 2008–09 (via the play–offs; 1–0 v Sheffield United), 2013–14 (as runners–up) and 2015–16 (as champions).
