The Clarets Trust is an Industrial & Provident Society set up in September 2004. We are a voluntary, democratic and not-for-profit organisation run by supporters, for supporters.

There are now over 130 Supporters’ Trusts up and down the country all making a difference at their football and rugby league clubs and in their communities. The Clarets Trust is still a very young organisation. By forging partnerships with prominent local and national businesses and community organisations and running events, we aim to raise the profile of our work whilst also helping local communities and charities.


Here at the Clarets Trust, we are fully committed to the FSA’s Sustain The Game campaign which has launched today with the backing of fans’ groups from across the country as well as senior politicians and football pundits such as Jamie Carragher.

The campaign highlights the urgent need for action to secure the very existence of many clubs.

Trust members have voted for club captain Ben Mee to be our Player of the Year for 2019/20.
Ben has been an outstanding player and captain in a great year for the Clarets in the Premier League.
Due to Covid it has not been possible to do a normal presentation and Ben will get the trophy at the final game on Sunday with a video message from Terry Hephrun Vice Chairman of the Trust.

The Clarets Trust now has a Committee consisting of Board members and co-opted members. Our former Member of Parliament for Burnley, Peter Pike is our renowned Chairman.

Still unsure? Then why not take a look at our Reason to Join page. Unsure as to what a Supporters Trust is? Then take a look at our Trust FAQ page.

There are also a number of volunteers who help the Trust Committee to perform the day-to-day operation of the Trust such as setting up and maintaining this website and providing support at events. The more people that are willing to help then the better the workload can be divided and the more the Trust will be able to achieve. So if you want to get involved in any way, no matter how small then please get in touch by contacting us via info@claretstrust.co.uk

The Clarets Trust has three main aims as stated in the constitution:

  1. To buy shares in Burnley Football Club to promote supporter involvement.
  2. To give fans a voice through supporter representation.
  3. To promote Burnley Football Club within the community.
