MILLIONS of football fans around the world will soon be able to have a kick around on the hallowed pitch at Turf Moor — in the digital world at least.

Burnley's promotion to the Premier League means the 22,546 seater stadium will feature in the latest instalment of FIFA 15, the first time it has featured in the popular long-running series.

The game’s maker, EA Sports, was also given access to the ground to take high res scans to help create the virtual ground.

The game promises ‘an unprecedented level of detail in the players and all 20 Premier League stadiums, including Turf Moor, as well as the integration of broadcast quality graphics, audio and commentary that ensures players will feel the emotion and intensity of the most popular football league in the world.’

Burnley’s players have also posed for 3D head scans so fans can hit the back of the net with Danny Ings, or perform drop-defying heroics with Tom Heaton, to their hearts’ content.

Recordings inside Turf Moor will also be used to recreate the deafening din of a live match atmosphere.

FIFA 15 will be released in the UK on Friday, September 26 on PC, Xbox One, and the Playstation 4.

If they want recordings to re-create the atmosphere of Turf Moor then a trip down to the local morgue will suffice.

Ha ha ha ha where's Fleawood Park then? Oh is it not on FIFA15?

Poor old Blackburn fans, forced to support a a poor mid-table little Second Division club and having to sit by in your Shadsworth bedsit watching Burnley completely dominate you on and off the pitch.

No wonder you are all bitter, banging on your keyboard with your nicotine stained chubby fingers, crying at the injustice of football and mourning your never-to-be-again-at
tained Premier League status.

Cue all the bitter degenerates from down the road! Where is Deadwood Park in the game?
Smart move by EA to include all 20 grounds. Its about time they pushed the game to the next step.

Come back when you have been promoted into the Premier League as we both know this will never ever happen again, you are nothing more than a mid-table-at-best Second Division tiny little piddling club.

Enjoy your defeats at massive clubs like Rotherham and Brentford, while we rub shoulders with the best teams and the best players in world football.

Your jealousy makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

You're a sad man Chuck. Like a deprived child who's been let loose in a sweet shop.

The most cringeworthy bit is that you actually genuinely believe we'd be jealous of your club. What is it we could possible be jealous of?

No trophies for half a century?
1 derby win in 35 years?
Horrific League 1 standard ground?
League 1 fanbase?
2 seasons V 18 seasons in the Prem
Div 4 for 7 seasons?

My 6 year old twins have got better banter material than you pal.

Mind you, you've not much to work with, so I suppose you should be humored for now.
