Ground Developments: July Update

25 July 2016

The changing face of Turf Moor has continued following the installation of the first of two new floodlight pylons.

The iconic towers in each corner of the ground, both almost 20 years old, were removed earlier this summer to make way for a new state of the art system.



And the new LED system, which is compliant with the new Premier League broadcasting requirements, is now well underway.

New lighting has been installed to the roofs of the James Hargreaves and Jimmy McIlroy stands, and when the second, 44m high tower is installed later this week, the previous light level output will be doubled.



In addition, work is near completion on the new Clarets Store which, which opens for business next Monday, August 1.

The new store will provide a new, exciting retail experience for supporters, as well as being the new dedicated home for the ticket office.
