Clarets Welcome

Burnley FC in the Community offers free football sessions every Friday morning for males over the age of 16. The sessions take place between 10am – 11am at The Leisure Box, Northlight, Glen Way, Brierfield, BB9 5NH. Participants from all backgrounds and abilities are welcome to join us.

Our group currently comprises of multiple young men who have settled in Burnley and East Lancashire after becoming displaced from Syria due to the ongoing conflict there. However, we are encouraging participation from any individuals or families that may be new to the Burnley and East Lancashire area!

At the free football sessions participants get the chance to develop skills, be part of a team and, most importantly, enjoy football in a welcoming environment.
