New stands at Turf Moor, Burnley F.C.


Tuesday, February 15 – 1898
Last evening, at a meeting of the committee of the Burnley Football Club, arrangements were made for enlarging the accommodation at Turf Moor. The alterations include a uniform standing stand, three tier high, and the ashes arranged in steps to rise to the boundary. At the lower end it is intended to add a stand eight tiers deep. The alterations will make additional accommodation for 10,000 people, or in all from 20,000 to 25,000 spectators.
