One Club For All

Burnley Football Club endorses matchday 'Respect', and 'No Room For Racism

The Premier League and Burnley Football Club are making it clear there is No Room For Racism as we continue to work with other clubs, fans, the FA, EFL, PFA, Kick It Out and the police to tackle discrimination across all areas of football.

The League’s No Room For Racism campaign demonstrates its continued commitment to equality and diversity, using the power and popularity of the League to oppose racism in football.

Racism is not acceptable in our competition or the wider sport.

Reporting abuse or discrimination on or off the pitch Everyone attending or taking part in a football match has the right to feel safe, valued and included and we encourage supporters to continue to play their part in this.

If you witness racist or other discriminatory behaviour at a match or around a stadium, please report it to the police or a steward.

Burnley Football Club stand for 'One Club For All', and strive to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for ALL supporters and its employees.

If you experience or are witness to any offensive or discriminatory language here at Turf Moor, or at anytime feel unsafe or threatened you now have the opportunity to let security staff at the club know discretely.

Simply text 'CLARETS RESPECT', followed by details (area of the ground, their seat location, a brief description of the person/s and the offence being commited) to 66777.

This text will be directed anonomously through to the Burnley FC matchday security team who will investigate the report immediately. This may be via the stewarding team intervening, by direct observation or remote observation via security cameras which are placed around the stadium.

Alternatively, if you feel it is safe to do so please contact a matchday steward and provide as much detail as possible so it can be investigated by the matchday team.

If you feel it is better to report the incident after the match please feel free to contact the club directly by emailing or Helen Tanner

Every Club has a Dedicated Football Officer (DFO) here at Burnley FC we have Ross Bosdorff, who has been a Police Officer for almost 20 years.

In 2018 Ross became the DFO for Burnley FC.

His role isnt just arresting and banning supporters although you will be aware that this does play a part from time to time. He is the link between Lancashire Police and the football club all year round creating risk assessments, monitoring intelligence and dealing with our supporter groups.

Ross works closely with all matchday staff, from the operations and safety officer to the stewarding teams, to Burnley in the Community and the supporter liaison and safeguarding teams.

Last November Ross and a colleague initiated the first hate crime in football conference which took place at Turf Moor and was a great success. This was the first of its kind in the UK.

Ross is available via the Clubs SLO or safeguarding team - whether it is to report a crime, ask a question or just for a chat he is more than happy to take the time out for our supporters.

A message from Ross "I look forward to seeing you all on a matchday when we get back to normaility, in the meantime thanks for all your help and stay safe"
