Dress To Impress

New away team dressing room continues Turf Moor up-grade

23 May 2018

The Clarets’ on-going investment in improvements to Turf Moor and its facilities will also see major changes to the dressings rooms and tunnel area before the start of next season.

The most significant part of the project, which is already underway, will see the visiting team dressing room moved along the corridor beneath the Ladbrokes Stand to take over space previously used by the laundry, office and storage areas.

That will place it nearer the exit to the players’ tunnel and will also create space in the existing away dressing room for a new stretching and warm-up area for the home team and a re-located match-day office/room for Burnley boss Sean Dyche and his staff.

A new smaller laundry will also be installed, along with a match delegate’s room and facilities to meet competition requirements for playing in Europe next season.

Stadium and Operations Manager Doug Metcalfe said: “The visiting team dressing room has been in place for a number of decades and it’s served its purpose.

“As the club develops, any changes we make need to be in line with this progress and be a tangible improvement.

"We want to be respectful to the teams who visit Turf Moor and the changes we make to the visiting team dressing room will be carried out in keeping with the club’s philosophy and in line with what the Premier League requires and expects.

“This development will also extend and improve facilities for the home team and staff on match-day, and also incorporate certain facilities that are needed to meet the criteria for playing in the Europa League.”
