What is
By Official Appointment?

Within the Burnley and Pendle region it has been recognised that there is a group of elite businesses who share two important characteristics:

  • They are the best in their chosen field.
  • They would benefit from a closer relationship with Burnley
    Football Club and Burnley FC in the Community.

This programme is aimed at bring together local businesses and loyal Burnley Football Club fans, in order to generate more business and help supporters receive the best possible service from the best local businesses.

The By Official Appointment partnership allows you to support your community through your club. By becoming a part of the BOA network, you will not only have the opportunity to have a close relationship with a Premier League Football Club, Burnley FC, but also with BFCitC, supporting their work financially and endorsing the great work that goes on in our community.

One of the initiatives you will be supporting include The Burnley Community which is home to the foodbank. During the COVID-19 pandemic the foodbank saw unprecedented demand and delivered over 3,000 food parcels feeding over 6,800 people, 2,600 of those who were children. The Kitchen also runs Early Kick-Off Breakfast Clubs.
