BURNLEY have announced that the James Hargreaves Group have agreed to sponsor the main stand at Turf Moor for another three years.

James Hargreaves have sponsored the stand since it was built in 1996 and Burnley boss Sean Dyche met with their managing director Gordon Rothwell to celebrate the new deal.

Rothwell said: “We have always enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Burnley FC and are delighted to be able to continue the stand sponsorship.

“The James Hargreaves Stand has become synonymous with Turf Moor over the last 18 years and this new contract will take the association beyond two decades.

“This is also a very exciting time for the club and its loyal supporters and we would like to wish Sean and the boys all the very best for the remainder of the season as they push for promotion.”

Dyche said: “We are indebted to the James Hargreaves Group for once again showing such solid support. To be a main line sponsor over what will be 20 consecutive seasons is a fantastic effort.”
