Founded in 1976, the London Clarets is the oldest Burnley supporters' club. Our mission is quite simple: to help people support Burnley FC. We do this primarily by getting people to games and arranging match tickets, but there's far more to us than that! Please read on for more details - we hope you'll want to join us.


The Benefits of Membership

Membership of the London Clarets provides an organised way to support Burnley FC. It offers several benefits, including:

  • Organised group rail travel from London to most Burnley games outside the south east

  • Access to a match ticket-booking service.

  • A wide range of social activities and events, including darts and quizzes.

  • Our award-winning bi-monthly magazine.

  • The company of other exiled Clarets, and the knowledge that you're not alone!


We believe that our subscription rates offer excellent value for money. Full adult membership for the whole of the current season (one year from July 2018) costs only £17.00, and we offer concessionary rates for young people, students and senior citizens.

Please do note that membership is open to everyone, regardless of location - the only 'qualification' is a love of Burnley FC! You don't have to live in London, or even in the UK. We currently have around 300 members, including several from overseas.

Concessionary Rate Membership is available for anyone :

    21 and under and/or in full-time education
    65 and over

Please note that proof of status is required from anyone requesting concessionary rate membership.

Rates for the 2018-19 season are again unchanged at:

£17.00 - Adult
£20.00 - Overseas
£12.00 - Concessions (see above)


Paying with PayPal

There are two ways you can pay for your membership using PayPal.

Directly from PayPal

You can pay directly by sending your payment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If your PayPal account is funded by a bank account (not credit/debit card) then you can avoid charges to either the club or yourself by using the "Friends and Family" option.

Using the "Pay Now" button on this page.

As well as the standard rates there are also options to pay £20.00/£25.00 which includes a £2.00/£7.00 donation to club funds (less PayPal processing fees).

It would be helpful if existing members enter their membership number under "additional information" when completing the PayPal details.

Select the correct option from the list and click "Pay Now", you will then be taken to the PayPal site to complete the transaction.


Membership form

You can download a membership form by clicking the link* below. The form consists of a one-page Word document (file size approximately 50 KB) that can be used either for renewals or by new members. Simply print it off, fill it in, and send it with your payment - my address is on the form. The form is designed to print on one sheet of A4 paper (portrait format).

Don't have Word installed on your computer? You can download the free Microsoft® Word Viewer from the Microsoft® website. If you don't have access to a printer, don't worry. Just jot down the details on a bit of paper and send that instead.
