Burnley Football Club has been named as the Best Customer Focussed Business in Lancashire at the Lancashire Business Awards.
The award, which was voted for by both corporate clients of the club and a judging panel, was received at a glittering ceremony at Dunkenhalgh Hotel on Thursday night.
And having accepted the award for his team, Director of Commerical Affairs Anthony Fairclough dedicated it to the supporters of the club.
He said: “I am proud to receive the award on behalf of my commercial team, who always go the extra mile for our corporate clients.
“In the Premier League it is a challenge from a corporate perspective, because of the influx of Premier League interest as opposed to Burnley FC interest and we always made the priority to cater first for the customers who had supported us in the non-Premier League years.
“I’d like to thank all our supporters and woud like to dedicate this award to them, for sticking by the Club through the lows and now they are, quite rightly, enjoying the highs.”
