A new and exciting series of scratch cards has today been launched by Burnley Football Club’s lottery department, offering Clarets fans the chance to win thousands of instant-win prizes.
The scratch cards are part of the department’s ongoing fundraising campaign for the Burnley FC Academy.
These limited edition Clarets Legends scratchcards pay tribute to 12 of the finest players to ever wear the claret and blue shirt, including Jimmy Adamson, Leighton James and Jimmy McIlroy, and are the ultimate collector’s item for any Clarets fan.
Officially launched by Burnley manager Sean Dyche and squad members Andre Gray and George Boyd, the new cards cost just £2 each and are a great way for supporters to contribute to the future of the club’s youth development programme.
Burnley Football Club’s Lottery Manager Caroline Fowler said: “Our Clarets Legends scratchcards are an exciting and affordable way to help support our fundraising campaign.
“All proceeds, after costs, will be donated to the Burnley FC Academy, helping to offer the best young players in the region the opportunity to develop into the Clarets legends of the future”.
Fans will be given the first opportunity to kick-start their scratch card collection at this weekend’s game against Sheffield Wednesday.
Cards will be on sale from the Lottery Office on Harry Potts Way and from official Burnley FC scratch cards sellers throughout the day.
