Turf Moor is the longest continuously used ground of any of the 49 teams which have played in the Premiership. Its home team, Burnley Football Club, have played in the stadium since moving from the Calder Vale ground in 1883. It was one of the last remaining stadiums in England to have historical players’ tunnels and dressing rooms behind the goals until the Premier League decided to rebuilt it to make way for more seating areas. Currently, the stadium is surrounded by four stands dedicated entirely for visitors supporting football matches.
Burnley FC played their first match at the ground in 1883, losing 3–6 to local side Rawtenstall. 3 years after the home team’s first match, Turf Moor became the first senior football ground to be visited by a member of the British Royal Family when Prince Albert Victor witnessed Burnley defeating Bolton Wanderers in 1886. Since then, the ground has been used to host matches for European Under-19 Championship, Burnley Cricket Club, and FA Cup.
